Happy T Tuesday

Just finishing up a long weekend here for our Canadian Thanksgiving :)  I have lots to be thankful for --- my Family and Friends, my life :) and health.  And.....if I don't eat any more pie till Christmas I may stay ok!

I've been working on knitting some fingerless gloves for my DIL, she picked the yarn and I'm knitting.....with a little help....

I made a pair of white ones last year with finer yarn so had to adjust the needle size this time, for the chunky yarn--seems to be working out just fine.  
The pattern is from 'Inspiring Ideas For Everyday Living' February 2013.

This rainy day, it's green tea for me :)

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to follow the T Tuesday group starting here at Elizabeth's blog.

Coffee Tuesday

Good morning to the travelling cups group or Tea Tuesday group :)

Up early this morning having coffee and watching the news.  I don't watch tv during the day but I do like to start out with a bit of news and this is usually the time for coffee :)

I've been busy getting some Christmas cards done and here is one I tried with the faux bleach technique.  I did try a few images but the flourish type worked best for me.  You stamp with versa mark on glossy paper, cover with embossing powder and heat.  Cover the whole piece with alcohol inks--I used three, then put a piece of regular white card stock over this and iron it. This transfers/removes the embossing powder and gives you the mirror image on the plain card stock--it looks a bit like a water colour image.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us by starting here, at Elizabeth's blog
