Surprise!! I am the June Winnie & Walter Leading Lady!


If I am dreaming, let me sleep!!  What a complete honor, and  huge surprise to be asked to represent Winnie & Walter this month!  I adore all things W&W and I'm sure Shay heard my shriek of excitement all the way to San Antonio!!! 

As it is the season for planting, and I am taking a break this year from getting my hands dirty, I couldn't wait to do a little water-colored gardening for this first week!!

Head on over to the Winnie & Walter blog to see how I've created the perfect, heat-embossed 'canvases' with In Bloom: Anna's Flora ... here is a little tease:


There will be many supporting roles from many other Winnie & Walter products, I promise! 

OH!  Before you go, I have to tell you that Shay has generously given me a bit of love from the W&W Shop to share with one on you: 

 
Be sure to let me know you've visited today, and I hope to see you each Saturday for the month of June!  [One comment per post, please - shipping and handling not included] I just know you'd love to add some awesome new goodies to your Winnie & Walter stash!
 
Thanks for stopping in!
