Hello there! I was having a little fun the other night creating this card - Queen was blaring through Alexa and I was just feeling a little mischievious - so I ended up stamping the rather handsome professor from Tim Holtz and making him fit for the season....
Having fussy cut him out I took an 8x8 card and roughly applied distress oxide rustic-wilderness with a sponge and tool I then added water to create a speckled effect. Next I applied more of the oxide through holiday-script layering stencil and then I added the die cut pinecone.
Hope you can join in the fun too over at Countryview Challenges which is anything goes Christmas this month!

Hope you are okay. We are good - just getting ready to embrace tier 3 - again - but with all the shops open it won't seem as bad. Going to be a weird Christmas though to end a weird year. Hopefully we'll be back to something resembling normal soon although I do worry that we can't really go on as normal due to climate change. We shall see.
I have a post on the chocolate Baroque blog today and I had one on the indigoBlu facebook page on Wednesday - just catching up with posting here. So for IndigoBlu facebook page this is my make from the Indian summer shows in September.

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are doing okay and managing with the latest lockdown. We are all good and to be honest since I am at work and the girls are at school its not really affected our lives much at all.
Christmas card club this fortnight and its my mums choice and she has chosen deer. I've made six cards - 2 were made almost a fortnight ago whilst the final 4 were a bit of a rush and got done at 5pm yesterday!!!

Hello there - pinch punch its the first of the month - and time for a new challenge at Countryview Challenges and this time the theme is 'Anything but a card'. This was the perfect chance for me to use some stamps that to my shame I hadn't yet inked up - so I took them off to my pottery painting studio and got busy.....

Hello there! Well September's nearly over - so glad I did Christmas card club again this year! Already go loads of cards made and now its time for our next theme which is gifts, ribbons and bows....I really wasn't sure about this theme - but then I remembered a die I bought last year and fished it out to play again. So 4 cards later and I'm really happy!
