Starting Christmas 2018!

Hello to all.  Hope you are all keeping well in this dreadful weather.
I have had a busy couple of days.  
My old computer decided to die and I have purchased a new one and in the process of uploading all of my packages etc onto this new system, fun (not)!!!! 
Its amazing how many apps and passwords you need in your daily crafting life!



The sweet image is from LeeHIllustrations on etsy and will be added to my Christmas card stash for 2018.  The stamp is coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.  A colour resist has added with white gel pen to create the highlight details. Twine and elements are from my stash.

Happy crafting fun to all!

What a fabulous card Laine. I'm looking for pencils that are good to,use....would you recommend the ones you used?

Brawny said...

Morning Laine. It was very kind of you to pop over and answer my question about pencils. It really was very kind. I’d been doing research on the net and watching YouTube videos an I was getting a bit confused. I find with my hands I can manage pencils better than pens and love colouring so want the right ones. Thanks again. Have a fab weekend Laine x

I wouldn't mind getting a new laptop soon, but knowing what needs to be done to get all stuff moved onto the new one makes me hold off ... good it's now done for you, and getting started on your Christmas cards in January is a smart move. I usually do the same, haven't yet, but there are still days left:)
