A little giveaway and a bit more brayering



Hello peeps, afraid I have been a bit neglectful of my blog the last few days, the new pill regime is making me feel a bit queasy and I've also got a cold, so not been doing a lot.


So just a quick post with a card to share and a little giveaway of some ribbons, beaded pins, flowers and gems. All you need do to be in with a chance of winning is leave a comment on this post and I will ask Random Org., to select a winner on Friday. Now closed

I made the card for our very horsey girl using brayering, Adirondack inks and a host of stamps from Art Impression, Inkyicious, Stamp Addicts and Andy Skinner. The fence is hand drawn with a fine nib permanent pen.

Have a good day everyone and thanks for dropping by.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling too good. Medication changes can really cause havoc let alone doing battle with a cold - hope things improve fairly swiftly. Love the depth you created in the snowdrifts & that fence looks super The snowflakes are ever so effective along the strip too.

Do take care.

CraftyLoops said...

What can I say Brenda?? This card is absolutely tremendous. If only I knew you were making it I would have asked could I buy it from you! My wee Granda was a jockey in his younger years and adores horses. He would have loved this card....but I sent him his Christmas card yesterday! Typical! Im sorry to hear your new medication regime is making you ill, hopefully once your body gets used to them you will start to feel better. Gorgeous goodies too, someone will be a happy chappy to win this lot. Lee xx

Elizabeth said...

Hi Brenda, a beautiful card as ever. Sorry I've not been visiting you much recently - if you have been following my blog you will know that it's been tough time for my family recently and blogging has had to take a back seat. Anyway, onwards and upwards ... love your card, it makes me think of you living out in the country as you do and the way you build up a scene with stamps and a brayer is so clever ... and the candy looks lovely too. Hope you are now settling down on your new medication and feeling perkier. Take care, Elizabeth x
