Another very simple card using the same Thomas Kincade stamp, this time I used coffe bean brilliance to stamp onto white card, then divided and cut into three, matted onto cream texture card and then onto brown texture card added some gold embossed card ,stuck the whole thing together on cream.
Having a bit a of a Thomas Kinkade day , once I started I couldn't stop.
I have used Stonehearth Hutch stamp from The Hobby House I have stamped it onto white card using Brilliance graphite black, then matted it onto black pearl card, the flourishes are by inkadinkado and are called dot flourishes , I coloured the window ,wreath and baubles on tree using art and graphic pens added some icicle stickles, all of these are from The hobby house.
The sentiment is from papermania let it snow.

The first card is a quick card using Art Impression stamps from The hobby house .I used watercolour paper , art and graphic pens and did a wash of pink and yellow, then coloured and stamped the trees and the stag, used water brush to pull colour added a sentiment ,mounted on to bits of bazzil from stash, and then a bit of stickles.
I have made a card using the sketch by Linda at cuddly buddly, I loved the sketch and will use it again, thanks Linda. I used green paper from stash,stamped out merry chritmas frame and I'm dreaming with staz on and coloured with coloursoft pencils,used scraps of bazzil to mount up with.

I thought it was about time I made a card .....lol, it seems ages since I did any, so Here it is today I have made a card for a very special lady who is going to be 90 0n Tuesday. I have used a leonne m punch but dont know what its called, made some lilac flowers with scraps of paper and leaves from scraps. I thought it would look nicer in a box.

Back off holidays, had a lovely time. The weather was quite good to us and rained mostly at night, so didn't do much parchment. When we came home we decided that it was time to take our dog Biddy to the vets to be put to sleep, she had quite a few things wrong, mostly linked with old age, she would have been 16 at the end of the month, so she had had a good long lovely life, but it is still sad ......and a hard decion to make. Not only was it Biddy, but our friends and next door neighbours had to have their dog put to sleep as well. Chocks was Biddys sister, they had lived with each other all this time, they grew old together so in a funny sort of way it was nice that they have ended their lives together. So I will be back to blogging soon but just for a day or two I will just be visiting everyone.
