Animal Athletics Canvas Print

I was very pleased to discover this afternoon that a new design I did for  Happy Spaces is now available online - just in time for the olympics - my animal athletics canvas print! 

I like the description they have used for it too: On your marks, get set, GO, GO, GO! It’s the 400 metres at the IAA (International Animal Athletics) Championship and all the animals are present and on top form. The atmosphere is electric and even the three-mouse cheerleading squad is at its best! A winning design for your future Olympian.

What the Ladybird Heard

What the Ladybird Heard - written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated Lydia Monks.  A great children's book featuring funny farm animals and cunning robbers who's attempt to steal a farmers prize Cow only to have their plans scuppered by a glittery Ladybird and her band of farm animal friends.  Wonderful illustrations as well as lots of bright colours and textures are incorporated to give the illustrations a wonderfully tactile feel - a really fun read!
