The red on this card is a wee scrap of masterboard I received in a recent swap. I saved every little bit of the boards that came to me because even the smallest cuts are amazing to look at. Check out how the colours give the impression of a deep, dark, cavernous, ridge lined SHARK MOUTH! ACK!

The background is a bit of watercolour painted book page belladune sent me in a paper swap in '16, I use it often and still have some precious scraps in my stash.

The background for this one is from SonjaBoo and the mushroom stems are kbrison's work, both from the same masterboard swap. The caps are bits of vintage doily left over from other projects.

Just look at all the glorious texture. I love using masterboards for backgrounds!

Most masterboard scraps make up the hot pink border here, those ones are from smmarrt. The umbrella was a bit from another crafter in that swap, it might have been geekgirl. The flowers I've had in my stash for a decade I think, lol.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Loving the red on the shark & how youve done the caps of the toadstools. The flower filled umbrella is gorgeous

Love that shark! It's great how you use all those scraps. You're right; they do add a lot of texture and dimension.

Goodbye, Craftster. Thanks for the memories.
