Stocking Surprise...

Hello everyone....

So...did everyone survive the first week back to school!?
It was tough but we managed it here.
No blisters from new shoes but wearing trousers again on Friday was a bit weird.

I'm back making Christmas Cards at the weekends...

Here is another card using the Gorgeous New 

I coloured the image with Promarkers and then used blue blending chalks 
with a small paintbrush around it.
Added lots of glitter glue and then sprinkled loose ultra fine glitter on top so it really has a sparkly raised texture!.

I did a bit of a close up crop to give you a better idea of the ultra fine glitter...
Think I got carried away with the white ink pen...
I just kept adding and then made some different sized dots for the snowflakes...

It's raining again now in West Sussex so maybe some more colouring
 while watching tv and eating tea and biscuits today!

Have a great crafty weekend!

Love from Sally

Rockin' Robins on a branch...

Happy Saturday everyone!

Where did the Summer go?
As usual, us Brits just seem to get used to having some sun and warm weather and then it gets swept away and September turns on the tap in the sky and the winds start blowing in.
I put the sunbed back in the garage yesterday in pouring rain.
(There were tears in my eyes too)

I'm back to school on Monday armed with new stationery, planners and stickers and then we'll all be looking forward to Christmas...

and speaking of Christmas....
How about a bit of inspiration from Wild Rose Studio...and some of the very
cute new Christmas stamps!
