Oh wow..I am so thrilled to be back with you. It feels like an age since I last chatted with you all.
Thanks sooo much to all of you who sent me good wishes. It is much appreciated.
I THINK I am just about fully recovered. Sinusitus turned into full blown aches and shivers and that meant a few days curled up on the sofa...well as much as you can with a husband working offshore and 3 kids!
Are you all very busy? How are the Christmas preps coming along? I have had to curtail my plans that I had for making my own Christmas crackers and hand making all my gift bags.....think all of those will be shop bought. But that is ok! Christmas is a time for family and enjoying them ...not stressing about everything being perfect.
Right onto the business of today...today we are now onto out 7th Quixotic Challenge and Carole has chosen the theme of lace.
I have chosen to colour this cute Shepherd from Sarah Kay which is available from Quixotic Paperie with 20 % off! He is coloured with pencils and a little bit of stickles for the star! I have followed the super sketch from Everybody Art Challenge.
The papers are ones I have had since last year from Flair and I adore them. They have beautiful script background and verses from the Bible. Most of them have been hidden but I will decorate the inside with the papers where they can be seen a bit better. The sentiment is computer generated!
For my lace option I have used some brown crochet ribbon and I have also used a wooden star and painted the edges with crackle paint, both available form Quixotic Paperie.
Thanks for bearing with me over the past couple of weeks, all being well I should have some more things to show you soon!
Quixotic Challenges is going to be taking a 2 week break so you have plenty time to enter this months draw for the prize.
Hopefully back soon!
