Hello everyone,

Thanks to all who commented on my feature at the Lilypadblog Guest Designer last week.
 Guest Designer
It has been great to make cards for them.

It has been such a beautiful november, seemed more like october, but since a few days the mist is hanging here all day.

 But even then, i try to find something beautiful out there.
Nature inspires me so much.

The next weeks will be quite busy for me.i have some concerts to give.
After practising each day the best way to rest and not to get too nervous is to make cards ...;-)
i will need a lot for christmas.also give them away as sets for friends to give their friends.
Love the idea my cards are travelling around in many places to give people a smile.
That´s what i do with singing also. i am happy when after a concert people are really touched by the music.
Then i did a good job..
The next weeks i will be using the kitchen of my partens very often. i don´t know if you remeber..last year i made 12 different sorts of cookies...i will start in december..
may be i make a blog for this.

now to the creative part:
i just found out a good way to make backgrounds, very easy.
i took a plastic from an embossing folder.
Here you can you distress inks, distress stains or even water-soluble wax-pastels.
i loved playing with them.
Look here for my supplies and the first step with the color crayons:

If you want some resist lines lightly, use a candle and go over the paper lightly in lines or script.
after painted with the crayons direcly on the plastic spray over with water.

Now stamp whatever you want or emboss with gold, silver, white or other colors.
This works with distress ins or stains exactly the same...or even mix them!!!!! so much fun.
Here some results:

Hope you have a fine and peaceful week.
Keep sunshine in your heart...the season is coming soon...and..........................
