Your So Sweet and A Welsh Dragon


High Hopes Challenge

There is a another great sketch by
Katharina this week on High Hopes Challenge, I am sure that you like me always enjoy working with Katharinas sketches and this one doesn't disappoint. They have also got a Guest Dt call out. There is also a big new release of High Hopes stamps due this week :))



This lovely High Hopes patchwork Angel is coloured with copics, the little patches embellishment and sentiment are also High Hopes Stamps. The papers are by daisy Bucket, I have nearly run out of these now and will be sad when they have gone I love this mix of colour.



The papers are carried onto the inside and of course MSDP had to be used.



Whiff of Joy - Medieval Stamps



Another sneak peak for you of the new Whiff of Joy - Alison Acton Medieval Stamps to be released on 14th February.



This cute Dragon is ideal for a card for St Davids Day (for those who don't know St David is the Patron Saint of Wales and his special day is on 1st March, and the national Emblem of Wales is the Red Dragon), My Maternal Grandfather was named Evan Evans so there is certainly some Welsh in my Family, and we do celebrate St Davids Day, this Dragon is also apt because Wales are doing really well in the 6 Nations Rugby at the moment COME ON CYMRU (Wales). The sentiment says St Davids Day in Welsh. I have coloured my Dragon with copics, the papers are from the DCVW Once Upon a Time Pad.



I Have called the Whiff of Joy Knight Llewellyn the last Prince of Wales, he has again been coloured with Copics. Do I give the impression of being proud of my Celtic Roots, well I am I have Welsh on one side and Cornish on the other cannot get more Celtic than that.




Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
