Santa & his Reindeers

I really enjoyed making this card. I had fun colouring the minuscule images of Santa and his Reindeers and I felt liked a little kid again while doing so! I now understand why people take so much pleasure colouring in those Zen books. I think much has to do with it bringing us back to our…

Rainbow

Using many bright colours of the rainbow is not really in my comfort zone, but my hubby’s Aunt Begonia, who is visiting from Spain with her family,  liked these colours and I wanted to make a card for her, as she is truly an amazing woman. She raised one blind son to become an independant,…
