Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Sketch #12

This is my first time taking part in this fab challenge blog dedicated to Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Here is my card for sketch #12. I must admit I loved this sketch and I can see me using it again. Water colouring is my medium today. I seem to be using mixed mediums at the moment but I'm happy that I can change, I don't seem to get bored that way. I water coloured today using Stampin up ink pads, which i thoroughly enjoyed. I hope you are having a enjoyable week so far. Tonight was our first time eating in since Christmas Eve and Kirstin cooked for us so we have really been spoiled. We will be having a quiet New Year shocking for a Scot I know but we are entertaining on New Years day so better be good. Well I'm off for a hot chocolate and a read of my book. See you soon and thanks for dropping in. Toodles
