  36. Love Andy’s Lofty stamps, haven’t got any of his CD’s but would love to have them. Your cards are lovely using his images. Two very talented people putting their heads together to create master pieces. Cathy (Kookat) xxxx

  37. Wow, I didn’t realise Andy was soooo talented. The CDs is super too. Although the CD is not really my cup of tea … if I won it would go to my little sister who needs cheering up due to health problems.


  38. Yet another great blog candy – what a talented man Andy is – the cd’s and oooh the stamps are to die for and how you have used them is spectacular. Have used the cd’s for both kids and adult cards and all were loved as the images are so different than the usual.

    Hugs Trisha
