August already..

Good evening everyone, do hope that your week has started well.. I really can't believe that we are in August already...oh my really will soon be Christmas!!!

I have had a lovely couple of days making samples for Barbara who is back on Hochanda on Sunday and Monday , and once again you are going to love what she is bringing..

My samples are safely in the post , fingers crossed that they arrive in one piece...


I realised that I still have a sample from the previous show to share with you...

So here goes...

I started with a piece of Stencil card...attached the stencil with a hinge of tape , and using the large moon mask. I added the sun..

Followed by the sky


Then some land


Some scenery, and some figures.

At this stage I must admit it took me a while to decide whether to leave the stencil outline white, or use a fine liner pen...

In the end , I went for the fine liner pen....

Some matting and layering...and a word from the word chains...

Pride....well it just had to be...

Speaking of pride...

I had a lovely treat at the weekend when Karl took me out for a meal and the boys had organised a bottle of Prosecco for us as a surprise....

I just thought I would share the words that they wrote in our card.


You are the parents that all kids hope to have,

You are the couple that all lovers hope to be,

And you both are the pillars of support that every family wishes it had...


And yes , when I read them , I had tears in my eyes...thanks Adam and Mikey....xx

Have a lovely evening all

Much love and hugs.
