Welcome to my blog. Guess what only 18 more sleeps before Santa arrives.
It was lovely looking at everyone's cards this fortnight and seeing how creative everyone is.
This fortnight we have another lovely sketch which I hope you'll have fun with which I did.
Yes we are going backwards with the number and this was a sketch that was meant to be used last year and was.
Here's my card using our sponsors image from Lacy Sunshine Stamps.
I loved making this card with this sweet image called
" Elfie Boo's Christmas Lights "
This fortnight our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine Stamps
Heather Valentin is creative , award winning, modern-day fantasy and whimsical artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years.
She began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age.
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and brush stroke. Her subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.
Heather's artist portfolio has expanded to include such clients as Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils and can now be found at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across
Her latest foray is to immortalize her popular drawn characters Eleanor and Pickles in a children's book of their own.
