Just for Kate :-)

Good morning ,

Well, dining room discovered and ironing done so all that is on the list for today is to put the tree up and discover how many of the Christmas lights ( which were working when we put them away) have  survived their storage ( there's always B&Q for emergency replacements).

Anyway as some of the photos in crafty fusioneers on Facebook are not playing nicely.. I attach a pick of the poinsettia wreath that I was determined to make this year... so Kate, this post's for you!

Good afternoon ( well if you're indoors anyway)

What a wintry day - the storms in the North look horrible... here in the south it's only blowy and grey but still, a better day to be indoors rather than outside.

Today's cards are made using Sheena's "Wouldn't it be lovely" stamp set. Both using Luminarte's H20's but in the second  I have painted with them on CC watercolour card and in the first I used them over promarkers on Neenah card. I do like the fact that they are so versatile :-)

 Have a warm and dry afternoon

Luminarte H2O and Sheena C&C 9th December


More playing  - but this time NO mention  of Christmas. Have been playing more with the H2O's being relaunched by Sheena on C&C  on 9 December and her Faith stamp set.

On Centura Pearl paper ( the pearly side) the background colours were a wash of H2O's and then the image painted, again with H2O's. I then water-coloured the little blue-tit and decoupaged it. Turned out OK I think..

Comments always welcome so do let me know what you think

Luminarte Twinkling H2O's and Sheena: Create and Craft Friday 9 December

Firstly, who nicked the first week in December??? I swear it has just vanished. I have very little done for Christmas as I have been having FAR TO MUCH FUN discovering the joys of H2O's. I hadn't used these little pots of loveliness before so this has been quite an adventure.

 2 Christmas themed cards today , given that its only 19 days away..(OMG - now WOULD be an appropriate time to panic I think ;-))

Bah humbug Sheena stamps  and twinkling H2O's on image and for the snow flakes

One of my favourite Sheena Stamps is the  rooftops one. I even managed to capture a bit of the twinkle in this pic - not easy on a camera but just goes to show how sparkly they are !
Have a warm and crafty evening!
