Paint Party Art and Christmas.........

Hi, thank you for taking the time to visit me at this busy time of the year.  This is going to be my last post until 2015 so am wishing you a Very Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.


''Taking time out to smell the flowers.....''
Painted in Acrylics on Canvas Paper

In between painting have made a few Christmas Cards and I mean just a few...........lol,  showing a couple of them as the rest have the same layout, nice, quick and easy.


Covering Notepads - just showing one - you will be pleased to know...........


All made from Graphic 45 papers which the lovely Sandy Dehon sent me early this year, thank you so much dear Sandy.

I made a few small tree ornaments, again just showing one...........


Still have loads to do, like shopping for preses etc, my youngest stepson's wedding to go to and celebrating our wedding anniversary.  Luckily for us we are going to my youngest daughter for Christmas Day, so no cooking for me that day............woo hoo

Thank you again for popping in, take care of yourselves and wrap up warm.
Hugs and Love Annette xx

Dearest Annette each week I think of you and miss your beautiful artwork and special spirit! Where ever you are I wish you well. The quilt your sister made you is eerily similar to the one I finished up for my niece 20 odd years ago,that my mother started before she passed. Big hugs to you where ever you are!
