No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Love the leaves! I have an offcut from a roller blind: thought I might try stamping on it (I'll stamp on anything) - never thought of cutting it into a shape.

Oh my I had to double check that.....leaves from tetley tea!!! Even when Nona listed this in other thread I thought she'd used real dried leaves. Would have been good though eh?

Lovely piece Nona.

the strawbs are hearts...poked and embossed and shaped from the underneath. Jane and I argued about which of the postage stamps Teabag should use...lol

Thanks for your comments girls. I had a lot of inspiration from my two 'Welsh' friends.
The strawberries were puched out heart shapes. I coloured the foil red with a Pro-marker before punching, then rounded the individual strawberries and placed them under the heart with a big blob of plumbers silicone.
