Our 2nd Guest Designer

Are you ready for another new tutorial and challenge?
This week we are featuring our 2nd Guest Designer, Sue Walsh ( )who has designed this beautiful heart shaped basket and has prepared a great tutorial for you, including a template. Selma and I have enjoyed Sue's work and hope you will go to her blog to read her tutorial then submit a similar project to Joan's Garden's Challenge Link. Thank you Sue for preparing this great tutorial.

Sue has used the beautiful Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Stamps to create this pretty heart shaped basket that could be used for many things.Please go to her blog to read her tutorial and download the template for this cute box.

Hello I’m Sue Walsh though I blog under the name “Tillymint.
I’m married to Ian or ‘Walshie” to me, who supports each of my crafty pursuits.
Together we moved from the UK to Sydney, Australia some 20 odd years ago to change our travelling lifestyle and settle down.
I’ve always been involved in some form of craft. I think it’s in my genes…my Grandmother was a talented dressmaker and embroiderer who used to hand smock for me as a child. My Mum is a keen knitter.
I can knit, sew, embroider and quilt but seldom do. I discovered rubber stamps, gorgeous dies and beautiful papers when I called a halt to a busy working life and here we are… I enjoy designing and making cards and dimensional projects. If I can combine some stitching in my projects I’m happy. My supplies are growing and I can’t stop adding to them! In other words I’m probably a lot like you!

I was thrilled to be asked to join Joan and Selma for the summer challenges and hope you’ll join in the fun.
You can see Sue's blog here!

Thank you Joan for including me in your summer challenge. I'll be away and unable to comment on any entries which is sad. I'd love if people could send me a link to go visit when I get back.
