I would especially like to welcome Mia and Joanne who are new followers. I would love to follow you back, but I cannot find a link to any blog - please let me know in the comments if you have one.
Edit : Mia has contacted me, and this is the link to her blog - please pop over and welcome her
A big thank you to all who commented on my last post - I simply needed time out to sort out the myriad of tasks that arrive when you are on your own - like removing hedges, painting fences, organising maintenance and repairs on the house etc. Life is vaguely under more control now.
I have also come to the decision that I may not be able to visit everyone as much as I did, (at least not until after the end of summer when the gardens etc do not need so much attention). I was starting to stress over not keeping up the visits to you all, but I am sure you will understand if I am not so frequent in my comments.
I have been crafting some while 'away' - not as much as I may like, and I have yet to make my Christmas cards, although I do have a 'plan' in mind....
Today's card was made for a young man on the cusp of adulthood.
I stamped and embossed the balloon image (from Krumspring Stamps, now in recess) and then filled in the design with watercolour paints. I then masked the image and applied some silver spray, which can just be seen in the above picture.
I the background was loosely watercoloured, and then I randomly stamped the word Dream over it.
The base of the card was covered with two strips of washi tape, and the sentiment added on top of that. The words all came from a set of Hampton Arts Colour Me
series of stamps.
