Wish Upon a Star

Hello again, another beautiful day and more time spent in the craft room.

Today, another Christmas card.  This time I printed out Sugar Nellie's "Wish Upon a Star".  She's coloured with copics and she's got plenty of crystal art glitter.  That's all I did with this one, very clean and simple!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

I'm entering this card in this weeks Merry Monday challenge here...

Lots of hugs

Snowman Down

Hello all, hope you're all keeping well and enjoying this beautiful weather.

I've had the week off and today found a little time for crafty play.

I made a Christmas card, mostly because they're my favourite cards to make, and you can never have too many!

The image is "Snowman Down" by Whipper Snapper and I coloured with copics.  The frame die is from Papertrey Ink (Shaker Shapes - Rectangles) and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley (Handwritten Phrases - Christmas).  The sequins are a mix from Pretty Pink Posh and Simon Says.

That's it from me for now.  Take care.

It's been a while...

since I last showed my face here.  Many will have forgotten me, many more deleted me.  Hello to anyone still out there, I hope you've been well in my absence.

So here's a little catch-up...

I have been spending some quality time with my family and just generally enjoying life.  My daughter just started her first full time job after gaining her A levels last year.  She got an A* and 2 As, we are so very proud of her.

The Ginger kitty Milo has grown into a very handsome young man...

and Piglet is just getting stranger with age...

Trev now has two Geckos, 6 poison dart frogs and 6 tree frogs.... Don't ask!

I bought him a shed for Christmas, so hopefully all the amphibians will be living in that before long.

I have been crafting in one form or another since I last "saw" you, either crochet, card making or messing around with something else.  I fancied doing a little colouring, so I printed Saturated Canary's Ava on an A4 piece of Copic X-Press It card and just sat and coloured for a white.  I've absolutely no idea what I will do with her, but I love how she turned out.  She's been coloured with Copics.

I'm not sure how often I'll post anything, but hopefully I'll see you again soon.  Take care and thanks for taking the time to stop by.
