Good morning and welcome to my rather vacant space!  What is happening on my work top this morning is very little.  Only one birthday that I have to make a significant card for between now and the beginning of October so I am taking the opportunity to start on Christmas cards
What you see is a stamped image,  heat embossed and some colouring with Promarkers. Not sure where I am going with it when the colouring is finished, I will get to that later.

Well that's me today folks, if you would like to see some more active desks, visit the wonderful Julia by clicking on the WOYWW button on the right hand side.
Thanks for all your visits and have a great day

Morning, Chris. Lovely image there - that will look great whatever you do with it to mount it. Hope the BBQ went well last night. We had nearly 30 for supper here - all dying to see the "new feature"!!
Take care. God bless.

I think some of the best crafting is done when you don't start out with a specific idea in mind! Just enjoy it, something will turn up!

Oh Christmas! I do so need to get started. It's so hard when it's 90 degrees outside and so very humid as well. Your cards will be just gorgeous I'm sure!

How lovely to be able to make a start on your C cards. If it was not so hot I would make a C Cake as I just feel a rich fruit cake or two would fulfill a gap at Christmas.
Hugs & Thanks for visiting me earlier Neet 14 xx

Ah hullo Chris.. I just adore that image and think it needs double layered die cut out mounted with some colour to match colouring... on embossed white background... or suchlike. Happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz x #8
