Sorry I have been away but I have had a stinkin' rotten cold all week and it is showing no signs of abating yet. After work and doggie walking, I didn't feel up to much.
This card was entered into the Hobby Art Christmas card competition. I am pleased to report that I came joint third!! Hoorah! I made the pale pink background using pearl-ex, water and cling film. When dry, I stamped on it twice and cut out the corners. I used Promarkers to colour the image and glossy accents on the berries.
Well I don't know about you but I am nowhere near as far along as I should be for Christmas. I still have most of my gifts to buy, cards to make and quizzes to arrange for my resident quiz night at Christmas in Torquay.
On a high note - I won a bottle of wine at the whist drive - highest scoring lady. I gave it to my other half and he complained it was Chardonnay! I wish I'd chosen the box of tea bags now, or the bag of oranges. Tomorrow I am out playing cards again for most of the day. Wish me luck!!
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
