Victorian Christmas

Afternoon all and thank you coming over to see me today. 

Not sure how you are today, but I know I am now very fed up with the 
weather. Floods going into town today. 

Talk about a load of rain.... why does the weather change so much from 
one day to the next I do not know. 

All I know is that I would not be surprised if it snows .... so with that in mind
here is my card for today.

A winters scene .... :) 

You may be surprised but I started off with one on my background papers but ended up 
using brown inks to colour the image after I stamped it using black ink. 

The image is from Imagination Crafts Art stamps.

Here is a photo showing my "snow" using Nuvo drops again - I like how I get 
texture to the image. I love how in the light the picture shimmers with sparkle, 

Mounted onto coloured card stock 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Well that is it for now. 

Just a quick post today as I have loads to do.... 

But now sure where to start .... 

Just can not get going.... my back is hurting today, not sure if it is my kidneys or 
a twinged muscle. 

Got to call Mum shortly see how she is ..... it does turn out that she has another 
small stroke the other day. She went to the Drs yesterday to get checked over, 
although she did not wish to go, I persuaded her to go..... always best to be 
safe than sorry.... and yes the discharge note did confirm our thoughts. 

Well bye for now and thanks for popping over
