Merry Monday #202 - Let it Snow

Hello there,
Welcome to a new Monday and a new challenge at Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.  This week Kathy wants us to Create a Snowy Christmas card.  My card is randomly stamped with the snowflake to make the background with Lost Lagoon ink and I used my markers to colour the bird in the centre.  I used punches for the focal point to add some dimension.  I finished off with some pearls and a sentiment.  Hope you will join us this week and don't forget to check out the other Design Team Members for some more inspiration.

Pat Carr's Camp Avalon April 2015 - Bokeh Background Technique

Hello Friends,
In April 2015 I attended Pat Carr's Camp Avalon at Toodyay.  The theme for the camp was Techniques, so we came away with a File full of ideas explaining the technique, with a sample swatch and a card using it. It was a lot of fun and I learned a few new techniques too.
