A bit of this and that

The last few days of my holiday were spent watercolouring with distress inks using the Hobby Art Countryside, Coastal and In the Country Scene it stamps.

I then tried using my new Aquamarkers to colour these little scenes that I will turn into cards over the weekend.

Besides my Aquamarkers and some Hobby Art goodies, Steve and Meg got me a new camera for my Birthday, so get ready for a lot of photos as I have a play. Here are a couple from the garden this evening...

Before I go I'd just like to say Welcome to my latest followers and thank you for your lovely messages and comments. They are very much appreciated. Thanks for looking!

    Love all the cards and I've seen the first one in the flesh haven't I? It's gorgeous and your water colouring is really beautiful.

    Love your pics with your new camera too.

  5. Wonderful cards. Where did you get that bus image? I need that for a scrapbook page for a graduate book I am doing. It would be perfect for this one photo. please let me know.

  6. Your scene cards are fabulous Sally and the colouring is beautiful.

  9. Ohhhh, I think I'm grovelling Sally. I've got your birthday written on the calender for June but I remember now it's close to Freya's. Sorrrrrrry!! A card is on it's way super fast!
    I hope you had a lovely day with some lovely pressies by the looks of things. Your colouring is gorgeous. I bought a small pack of Aquamarkrs some time ago but haven't tried them yet.
    Your new camera will get lots of use I'm sure, the pics in your garden are lovely. We need a new compact, Freya sent our old one for a swim when we were in Malham!!
    Sorry again.
    hugs Lisax
