Thanks for popping in. Went walking in the woods with Grace this morning. Slid around on the ice and had quite a giggle. Blue skies and crisp underfoot – apart from the muddy slosh underneath the trees! A walk out in the fresh, wintery air is certainly good for the soul. Whatever is going on in life, there’s got to be time for a leisurely walk with your daughter, eh? She lights up my life
Now I’m sitting here in the warm, chatting to you, next to the most fragrant bunch of mini narcissi from the Scilly Isles ever! A lovely, thoughtful gift from Pat Hoskings, to lift my spirits. It worked.
So Life feels kinder today than in the past few days. Sure is good to have Gracie home. We just have to travel gently, don’t we? So many lovely flowers and beautiful cards for the family too.

I wish you could smell these flowers! Note to self: plant bulbs in the garden in the fall!
There’s a lovely Daffodilly stampset, illustrated by clever Tina Cox, which is delightful. Let me find it for you….Click Here
And here are the lovely mini words of wisdom…
Here’s a little step by step I did a while ago, on Clarity card, the coated stock.
- In a nutshell, make a colourful background with watered down ink, then let it dry.
- Stamp your image with Black Archival, allow to dry.
- Colour in with Perga Colour pens.
- When completely dry (leave it a day to be sure), lightly buff with a tissue.
- Result? Fantastic glossy print.
Would it be excessive to go out for another walk before it gets dark?
Nope, said Dad. Do whatever gets you through the day.
