Winter Wishes

Afternoon all

It has been a busy day for me today, shopping first thing and then off for a walk. 

Picked some fruit

But back to the main thing ....... here is 
my card for today. 

I tried to use a brayer on gloss card but did not get the right feel for the 

I sprayed with water to lift off the inks but still was not happy 

so back to my usual way and to use brushes on stamping card, but once I had it 
inked up in Denim inks sprayed with water to lift the blue to make snow. 

I used Clarity church and lamppost stamps and Inkylicious tree stamps 
with a torn piece of paper to make the hills. 

You may notice that the church is "in the snow" - I stamped over a piece of 
paper and then added a wee hill. 

Added the Sentiment from Inkylicious 

I did add a bit of a shadow to the church and lamp post and white gel pen to 
make some snow. 

Mounted onto Rainbow mirri card onto a 5 x 7 white card blank. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping over today

I have bee getting frustrated with Non Delivery of  items I have ordered. 

I have placed last week, and there seem to be a lot of people in the 
same position, as per social media.... of non delivery of goods. 

 So much for a new Express System supposed to be better, not that I seem to 
find it so. No tracking numbers, no idea of who is delivering unless you chase the 

 I  there for  have cancelled my membership to this channel and will 
order direct with the suppliers in future. 

Why do people / companies change the goal posts???? 

And call it "benefit for the customer" 

Oh well that is off my chest 

 and hopefully 
I will feel some what better tomorrow.
