Back in the Land of the Living!

You've probably noticed that my blogging has recently been none existent, not because I've been sunning myself under palm trees whilst drinking long drinks full of fruit! Oh no! I've just been sitting here in my craft room becoming more and more frustrated as I have been continually unable to stay on line for more than a few minutes at a time...........so sorry for my lack of comments and posting, hoping to catch up with you all tomorrow when those nice people at sky send my new router.

In the meantime I'm fighting valiantly (there's another of those hymns from school Janet) on and aiming to post my entry for Winter Wonderland.

The challenge this week is to creat a card encompassing home for the holidays. I dont have any stamps with the word home on them but this stamp (which took 3 hours to colour) shows home at Christmas in all it's glory.
I've no idea what the stamp is as it was given to me some while ago, such small detail though it was a ****** to colour. Next time it will have a sepia wash!

Cardstock - Kanban
Colouring Medium - Prismacolor, sakura pens
Inks - Memories black, TH Distress ink shabby shutters
Ribbon and bits from stash.


Hope to get round all your blogs over the next few days all being well.

I can relate Michelle! I have a similar stamp ... I coloured it once ..... and only once! :o)

This was well worth the time and effort tho, It's absolutely gorgeous! I love your ribbon and holly too!

Thank you for joining us again at Winter Wonderland!
