  90. Hi Sam,
    oh how your card/jar takes us on a trip of the galaxy with the colours that are coming out of the centre of the galaxy. The stars in the sky look as if you could just try and reach what is unreachable. I think that the makers of star trek and deep space nine and the other visions of space are in need of a new art director some how as they are always looking for people that can make the impossible or unbelievable, believable and possible with the luxury of magic and a screen. Thank you flower for the outer of this earth trip that you took us on and one thing is for sure, it is unlike any other that we have seen,
    crafty hugs

  103. Hi Sam, oh what a fantastic jar you have made, it is stunning. I must admit I am not a 'messy crafter' but I do appreciate people who are and all the hard work that goes into creating things.

    I like mostly everyone who is in the blog hop are hoping to win something but for me that is not all that this is about, it is the knowledge that you and the rest of the design team are sharing with all us crafters out there, you give so much inspiration to us all, not only from things like facebook, but also on Hochanda programmes, I am an avid searcher of the CC gallery, and to be part of the design team must be such an honour, your jar is a prime example of your talent.

    Good luck everyone,

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
