Calligraphy


The challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge this week is anything  goes. I normally keep my calligraphy projects well hidden away from the public eye, but as I've been absent for a while I have decided to show you one of my projects before it goes back in it's hidy hole.

Time for a nap

Finally I'm back in blogger land. I have been  rather poorly  with my Fibro and been in a lot of pain and unable to sit for more than a few minutes at a time, which makes crafting hard. Also our pc died and we had to get another, it was 6 years old so I suppose it didn't do bad. Now I have to try to figure out all the settings I had before and get used to newer versions of the software packages I use
This is the first chance I've had had to ink up this little fella which I brought when I went to the craft show at Bluewater a few weeks ago with a friend which was a nice suprise as I didn't think I would be going.

Flowers times three

Well the weather forcasters got it right for once and it snowed on Saturday night. On Sunday morning we woke up to a lovely white garden. So time to batten down the hatches and stay in the warm and do some crafting. I hope the photo is ok as I am still trying to get used to the Windows software on my laptop as my pc is broken and still in the repair shop waiting either repair or the death sentance.
The background was made using a mixture of  Tim Holtz distress inks. Flower stamp is from Paper Artsy. Sentiment is from Imagine That. I used Lavender Lace liquid pearls for decoration.
