Blog Closure


Hi, it is with a sad heart,  to let you know I have, today,
closed down my latest blog
After a short spell of eighteen months, the time has 
come to say goodbye. 
There are many reasons, too many to start listing,
as none is more responsible than others.
Suffice to say,  challenge blogging is not as
active as it once was, players are finding other
sources of sharing their creations. 
Please pop over to the blog for my farewell
comments, thanks and praises.
I thank you, personally, if you have at any time
been a supporter of the blog.  Thank you.

I is for Insects.

all sprayed with water on my glass mat and the card dipped into
the watered colours. Splashes added, additional background
