Card Sketch "Thanks" (Maureen Wood Aust)

Morning All,

Another overcast day in the South East , although it is 27 degrees , it is still cloudy so does not feel that hot. Yesterday was all about making cards as a few swaps to be had, which i agreed to before i went on holidays.

I love the sketch for "STICK IT DOWN" it can be interpreted in so many ways.

Thankful Card (Maureen Wood Aust)

Good Morning
Have come back from holidays refreshed, and ready to start this year's challenges. Not sure if i will get them all done as yet, but will give it ago
The weather is a bit cooler this morning as quite cloudy thank heavens males it easier to get things done.My first challenge is a new challenge site  I found late last year

Your item should be nearly all black and white.A coloured photo is OK and on cards just a TINY bit of colour if possible.
I have decided to do a card, whilst on holidays i brought Kaisecraft "Blessed" Collection Paper Pad  for its black and white images i thought it would be just perfect.

"Happy New Year" Design Team Post

Good Morning,

The Design Team Post for January reveal, Glitter “Happy New Year”.I hate glitter with a passion, so went for Glitter card stock instead, even that leaves tiny bits of glitter stuff on your hands.
I thought a card would be the easiest to do

My last post for the Year, Don't know where it has Gone.
I would like to wish each and everyone A "HAPPY NEW YEAR" and may all your dreams and craft wishes come true in 2019

Its been a busy year, lots of layouts and cards made. Lots of challenges entered. The photo stash is slowly depleting but am sure there will be lots more of the grandchildren and great grand children next year.

I made a few things this year that are way out of my comfort zone. Experimenting with texture paste and stencils, paint and actually stamping on to either a layout or a card and the making mini books .

I' am off next week for a two week stay with our daughters, so January will not be much of a challenge month for me , but i will come home with lots of Happy Snaps of grandchildren and great grandchildren to scrap in 2019

This post is for "Off The Rails Scrapbooking" blog spot and the challenge is 
"Anything Goes"

I have c…

Sending you Happy Wishes
