A dear friend of mine is turning 80 this week (waving at YOU, Shirley!) and a special birthday requires a special card.  I left my sponges in their box and pulled out my Aqua Painter instead.  I love the bold, bright watercolour wash effect on this card. 

I simply dipped my Aqua Painter into various re-inkers and let loose on the page, which of course, is water colour paper.

I hope you had a wonderful day Shirley xox

Just a quick post today, as I am busy packing up for the Palmerston North Quilt & Craft show, which runs from the 14-17 February.  Set up day today, so just about ready to hit the highway!

I am teaching a sponged card class each day at 12pm.  Want to come to my class?  Then come and register with me at stall C29.  I hope to see you there, if you can make it!

Firstly, thank you to my loyal followers who have stuck around over the past couple of months, while I have been busy moving house and location!  For the most part, I have settled in to my new home now, AND I finally have a big craft space all to myself once again.

After all the upheaval lately, I sat down and created this afternoon.  The first time in a long time.  Many thanks go out to Tee-Jay, for her crafty company today.  It was just enough to get me started!

I made some cute little Pinwheels while at Tee-Jay's and I didn't want them to go to waste.  While I didn't feel like making a card, I thought a tag would be cute with these on.  I thought I would try my hand at a Vintage Valentine Tag.  Considering vintage is not really my thing, I am quite pleased with how this turned out.
