5th Page of My Favourite Artist Book

Hi Peeps.  I have just done the 5th page of my book.  I think if I ever do another one I will make it a larger book as the cover is only an A6 size but the pages inside are a lot smaller.  I am not use to doing my work that small and I am not happy that I can't put all the lovely embellies on that I like to use.  Today's artist is MORGAN from MORGAN's ART WORLD.

5th Page.

Thank You

Thank you to all my lovely blogging pals from all corners of the world for my lovely Birthday cards and presents that I was lucky enough to receive today.
It has been a very quiet one this year as my hubby is still very poorly.  I did go down to the lounge this morning at my apartment block for the usual Monday morning coffee at hubby's insistence.  I didn't like leaving him but had my mobile on in case he needed me.




Thank You Once again.

Hugs
