Part 2 of my Leonie samples

Good afternoon, what a lovely day sun is shining and me and hubby have been on a 5 mile walk taking in some fresh air ! 
Anyway onto some samples made for Hochanda using Leonie Pujols fabulous range of stamps. I can't seem to stop playing with these and even though they have now been aired I've still got them on my desk and made 3 things with them yesterday !! 
These samples got shown & im sure I gave a squeal of delight when I saw them and heard my name lol.

And when I saw that 2 of my makes had made the packaging well that nearly finished me off !! I can't tell you how exciting it was. I know there are so many talented crafters out there & I don't take anything for granted but I'm a crafter and I love my hobby and I'm truly grateful to Leonie & also Darren at Jones crafts the other DT where I get to work with G45. They have given me a fabulous opportunity and I enjoy every minute of it. 
Thank you to all my followers who visit and leave comments it means so much. 
Right of to get ready for craft club. 
Take care friends xx
