K is for ..... Kingfisher

Morning and thank you for popping over to see my blog

Had a good day yesterday - went to the Village Hall Coffee Morning 
and sold a couple of my cards. 

It is always nice to meet up with fellow village folk for a natter 
and of course cakes. 

Took some of my books to recycle - we have a sort of library of books which 
we sell for a grand total of 20 pence each and once we have finished with them 
return for another to read. It all adds up for the funds to help run the Village Hall. 

Anyway I digress 

Here is my card for today 

K is for .... Kingfisher. 

Bought new stamps from Hobby Art the other day and thought great I can use them 
for this challenge 

I used Kraft card and cut out a tag to keep with the theme of using tags for this challenge
also keeping in with the theme "of mine" animals or plants. 

I put gesso over the kraft card to add a bit of background texture

Stamped the image with gray permanent ink

Coloured in with watercolour pencils and brush. 

Added the definition and letter

I hope you like it

I would like to enter it for the following 


Hope you have a great day 
and look forward to seeing you again. 

Need to wait in for a delivery and fingers crossed that a delivery for 
Germany arrives today - Has arrived in the UK yesterday and now saying 24 hour Express but 
we will see !!
