Scared of my own shadow

Thank you to everyone who sent good wishes for my appraisal this week - I am pleased to report that it went very well!

The week I've had at work has left me feeling somewhat flat and lacking in energy


But I did manage to make one Christmas card this week.  It's in my favourite CAS style so apologies if you are bored with seeing these


I've used a stamp called "Joyful Noise" from Penny Black but I am 99% sure that the artwork is Mo Manning - painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers), and the sentiment is from Woodware.

While I was doing this I was transported back three and a half years to art class.  I could hear the tutor, Paul, in my head firmly saying "deepen those shadows" and me squeaking back at him "but I'm too scared"!

Hope you have a fabulous day, whatever you are up to.

Hugs, Sxx
