Hello there,  how're you all doing,  well I hope. Just popping in with one of my Hobby Art Christmas cards, 


Another robin card,  well you can't have enough of them at Christmas time. 

Coloured with  Windsor and Newton  watercolour,  Stickles and Posca pen. I've used one of the Lavinia Christmas sentiment stamps.  A very simple little card.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. 

Have a lovely weekend,  take care of yourselves till I see you again. 

Love and Hugs

Hello there,  I hope you're well.  

It seem to me that I'm posting less and less these days.  I'm certainly not making as many cards and it takes me longer to colour in a picture. 

Finding it easier to post on Instagram,  so maybe unconsciously I'm winding down my blog. Anyway,  we'll see.

Another Christmas card today 


Another Hobby Art image from years ago,  coloured with  Windsor and Newton watercolours Posca and gel pens with some clear gems.  Sentiment from Lavinia stamps. 

I've really enjoyed going through my Christmas stamps and finding old favourites,  and I've a few more Hobby Art stamps to colour. 

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post. 

Take care of yourselves  and see you soon 

Love and hugs Kate ๐Ÿ’–

Robin and the Holly!

 Hello Everyone,  hoping your week is going well.

We're back to being cold and wondering where the Summer has gone. As I'm typing this my hands are like ice. Had very heavy showers today too,  longing for some heat.  

Anyway,  just to fit in with the chill, I've got a Christmas card today, 


I've had this Hobby Art Robin for ages and felt that it needed an airing. 

I've used Windsor and Newton watercolour,  Elements ink,  Posca pen in white, Stickles in red. A Lavinia Stamps sentiment.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last post. 

I'm away to stick my hands in the oven ๐Ÿ˜„ they might thaw out whilst I'm making dinner. Take care of yourself, 

Hugs Kate ๐Ÿ’–

Moon Fairy!

Hello Friends and Visitors.  Hoping you are well and enjoying this spell of good weather.

I have  coloured picture today, 

This is the front page of this book and I don't usually colour this page,  but I thought it too lovely to miss out, so used Prismacolor pencils and Posca glitter pens. I think she turned out quite well,  shame I can't say the same for the photo ๐Ÿคจ

That's me for now,   take care, love and hugs

 Hello Everyone,  hoping all's well with you and that you are enjoying life.  But sending healing thoughts if you're having a bit of a struggle. 

Well I'm another year older,  my birthday was on Wednesday and had a lovely day and  beautiful cards and gifts.  Alistair took me for a yummy lunch,  so I didn't have to cook at night,  a wonderful gift in itself. 

Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my calendar page  always appreciated. 

Here's today's offering 


I've used a Sweet Poppy  Stencil coloured with Elements ink.  Inkylicious stamps,  Stickles glitter. 

Hope you like it,  I love these kitties watching Santa flying by.

That's me for now,  take care of yourselves, 

Hugs Kate ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–

Thank you so very much for your lovely comments on my previous post. Sorry that I've not bee around to have a look at your creations, I just don't know where my time goes, I'm hoping to get around to having a look soon.

That's me for now, take care everyone and have a lovely weekend,
