Good Morning all and thanks for popping in today.
Bit cold and rather wet here this morning - think I will have to put the heating on
or start running around the house.
I thought I would share this card I have made with you today.
I have used my new Penny Black stamp to make this card
Stamped with black archival ink and then used masking fluid to blank out the trees.
Using distress inks coloured the background sky and hills.
Rubbed off the masking fluid and just gave a little colour to the trees.
Then the robin I coloured in with watercolour pencils.
Just love this - mounted onto black card onto a white card blank.
Was wondering about a sentiment but think this card says it all and there is always the
inside to put Happy Christmas :)
I would like to enter it for the following
I had a lovely time seeing my family yesterday.
An interesting Proverb today
"Make some money, but don not let money make you" a Tanzanian proverb.
I have seen, and know, so many people who work work work for those holidays,
material items, and have NO time to enjoy life. It would not suit me.
To me so long as I have a bed to sleep in at night, I am warm, and have food
on the table, then I am happy. I am happy living with Den, in a wonderful
place here in North Devon, living a "simple" life....
Another old saying is "Money is the root of all evil"
but also "Money makes the world go round"
What are your views.... todays reading made me think... and to thank
my blessings for what I have .... not what I desire ... but to accept what I need...
Anyway enough of my rambles today.
If you like Altenew stamps pop over to C&C and have a look got some great prices.
Have a good day....
