A birthday treat...

...because I couldn't wait.

Yes, yes, I know...

The weekend of 27th November is Members Weekend at Pinnacle Crafts but I couldn't wait - I wanted to play.

So a new corner punch and a Groovi plate jumped into my basket and came home with me...
...I just fell in love with the lamp-post. Isn't it lovely.
Here is my first effort using the new plate...
...I've added shading to the oval to give a more defined frame and the lamp-post has received a bit of shading too. I'm not sure if the background needs something else but at this point I'm going with the "less is more" attitude so that I don't ruin it.

This aspect of parching I can just about cope with and I actually find it quite relaxing - just like colouring in. So there will probably be a few more cards using these designs on this year's Christmas cards.

Have you tried a new craft this year?

Will it be appearing on your Christmas crafting?..................................................................

It is BEAUTIFUL! I love trying out new things - this year I bought a geli plate and have used it a few times to print some backgrounds- such fun. I also bought some brusho paints to play with.

Oh definitely, leave it as it is, because it is stunning!! It really does have the wow factor, I love it! We decided to celebrate Thanksgiving today - I am sorry now though, I ate far too much turkey...

I have not really tried anything new this year, other than using DecoArt Media Fluid paints and mediums, still at the practice stage yet though... Anne xx
