Every Day!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are all having a good weekend whatever your plans have been. We haven't really done much, a bit of housework today, but yesterday, we had a lovely walk by the sea and blew away some cobwebs.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last  post, I appreciate  them all.

I have another finished page from Johanna Basford's planner;


I used Derwent Inkintense pencils, a pencil I don't often use, so I need quite a bit of practice I think. I gave the blooms a bit of sparkle with various colours of Stickles. The background is coloured with Faber Castel soft pastel and I decided something was needed within the wreath, so I found this lovely sentiment from Altenew. I'm quite pleased with the finished result.

Just a short post tonight so I will love you and leave you and see you soon, stay safe,

A beautiful page Kate, fabulous colouring.
What I wouldn't give for a walk along the beach with the dogs, we haven't been for about a year now, it's only a 40 minute drive but we're not supposed to travel at the moment, fingers crossed that might change soon.

OH this is so beautiful, Kate! Your colorful wreath of flowers is just splendid! I love the wonderful sentiment, too - is this Altenew? I thought I recognized the wording of one of their stamps - which I love! This is a beauty to behold! I hope you are well, my friend! xx

What a pretty page and a beautifully coloured. Love the extra bling and the fabulous sentiment x. Wet and wild weather today, which would really blow the cobwebs away Kate x.

What a lovely floral wreath, Kate, and even more, the beautiful sentiment inside. I DO ABSOLUTELY BELIEVE in that sentiment. There is good everywhere, if we only look for it. Sometimes the hardships are steep and difficult, but even in those, I find beauty. Thank you for sharing! love, de
