Sending MERRY Wishes Your WAY?

I have a secret to share….!

Did you know I’m a bit of a Grinch? Truly, but when it comes to Christmas cards, it’s so totally not true. I love spreading the cheer with my handmade cards. I have such fun sending them out and also receiving them. I know that time is precious for all of us and I truly appreciate the time that you take to spend with me, whether it’s a visit here, a comment or by sending me a card. You are all amazing and honestly the only reason I keep coming back is because of YOU!

So I’m sending big MERRY hugs your way for a fabulous Festive Season!

And of course, I had to share a card….

Therese Calvird - Ellen Hutson - Snow Angels - Fa La La (card) (3)

Recently I made a video and had some fun playing with my Gansai Tambi paints and I thought, why not make just one more. This one is a little different, I wanted to show that you can achieve a similar result with an image, such as this one of a boy from the Snow Angels Set.

I made another easy watercolour wash background. But this time I stamped over it with a fun background stamp called Fa La La.

And just in case you missed the VIDEO I mentioned. I made 5 EASY Watercolor Christmas Cards and you can see it RIGHT HERE.

I am working this Christmas, so it will be a quiet one for me with my hubby and fur children. But whatever you are doing this year, may it be filled with fun and lots of cheer! Crafty Christmassy hugs,
