Trees, moons and suns



Good afternoon crafty Peeps, hope you week is going well. I imagine those of you in the UK are as fed up with this weather as I am, rain, rain and yet more rain, but there again our friends across the pond are having to contend with sub zero temperatures which can be no fun either.

I thought I had better do a post now as tomorrow being Thursday means my third treatment and judging by the last two a couple of queasy days, so best to get ahead of the game and share some cards I made recently. Just inkyness really, or rather Pan Pastels and a variety of stamps and masks.


See you soon and as always I appreciate your visits and kind comments.

Two beautiful atmospheric cards Brenda and shows off your scene creating skills perfectly. Love them both but the top icy cool one is my favourite. Before this horrible windy and wet weather arrived there were a few mornings when we enjoyed scenes like your second card.

Hello, Brenda. These are both lovely - I enjoy your scenic cards - they look like they take a lot of time and forethought to get everything just right - yours are always so beautiful! I hope tomorrow's treatment goes a little better for you. Sending you healing prayers.

Hugs,
Kitty

Thought you might have made FOUR cards today Brenda!! LOL
Two beauties (a bit like Studgey's - make no mention of the pen)- might have been cold and wet but the atmosphere was better than an electric fire!!
Good wishes go with you for tomorrow's yukky day. xxx

Oh yes Brenda, the weather is certainly depressing, we are considering growing rice, our field is that wet!! Still, could be worse I suppose and your lovely cards should give us hope that grey is not the only colour!! Will be thinking of you tomorrow xx

We had way too much rain last week and before and now we have snow. Not ideal, but in my opinion still better than rain. I hope you'll get some sun soon too!
Your cards are beautiful as always.

Beautiful scenes Brenda. I love how you do these lovely scenes.

Hope you're not feeling too miserable over the next few days.

I'm fed up with the weather too. It's been nothing but rain and wind and more rain and wind here. When I took the dogs out this morning I was just glad to have two big dogs to stop me from being blown away lol!

Take care,

Kat xx

Beautiful scenes Brenda - you doing what you do best.
The road outside looks weired today - it's got some dry patches! I'd forgotten what that looked like. I expect the next tine I look out it will be back to usual by the look of the sky.
Hope all goes well over the next few days.

Paula (PEP) said...

I do hope today isn't too bad for you - take care with those after effects. Both are very much your style & I particularly like the second one which really reminds me of my Nordic roots with snow & pine forests. Your matting in both panels is a real education & so so effective.
Thinking of you.

Rain in the UK, Snow in America, and hot summer heat here in Australia! Got to love the world and its extremes, right!? lol!

Lovely woodsy cards, you're a magician with ink and a brayer!
