Hi everyone, the shopping is done, the turkey delivered to my son's house, presents are wrapped and the little bit of cleaning necessary has been rushed through!
I have had some time to play, and I might say the inclination to do so, as my mojo, along with my usual positive attitude, totally disappeared.
I have made a tag for Tag Tuesday and Pinky's theme 'Anything Christmas' I used up some scraps from my desk and the Tracy Easson Christmas tree is from a supposedly CAS Christmas card that I managed to get a big smudge mark on.
I also have a seasonal door entry for Valerie's 'When One Door Closes, Another One Opens' theme at Art Journal Journey.
I used two stencils and three different inks for the background and added some torn holly patterned napkin. The door images came from a postcard I bought years ago, Santa is a Crafty Individuals image and the words are mine printed out from the computer.
I must say I feel a lot more relaxed now, especially as we had a very quick walk at Fletcher Moss this morning. There was a little bit of Wintery sun and the birds were happy that it has stopped raining(so am I)
Some of the paths could only be accessed by those wearing wellies!
We certainly weren't going to try to walk on this!
We walked back and went in through another gate
One lone hellebore flowering
The cafe was busy - they only close on Christmas Day
We walked past the Didsbury ....we will go here for lunch one day when it gets warmer.
We took a short cut back to our car through The Parsonage gardens.There are buds on the Magnolia treeIt's not all green and brown in the garden
There's only one thing left for me to say - I hope you'll have a very Happy Christmas.
Thanks for looking, Chris
