Christmas Paint Fusion

Evening lovely Crafters.

I hope you are all keeping well and safe in this horrible world we suddenly find ourselves in here in the UK. For the first time in my life I feel ashamed to be British. It all makes me so angry that people can behave in such a despicable manner. There is no excuse for any of it, despite what the media seem to want to make us believe.

Now onto to brighter and happier things. Our Fusion Master Sheena Douglass will be on your screen tomorrow launching a Pick Of The Week on Create and Craft with her new Christmas Paint Fusion stamps and if you like anything floral and festive, you'll love these. They can be used in lots of ways, not just with paint fusion and they are bound to get your creative juices flowing.

Sheena also has some Blog Candy to give away this week and you can check it out here.

Here are some of the samples I have made with the lovely new stamps.

The last two are from the same set and can be made into a wreath or a garland and all the embellishments are separate so you can play around to your hearts content.

I have to say a big thank you to all my lovely Blogging Buddies who have continued to leave such lovely comments depite my poor blogging of late. I do apprecate you all so much.

I will be having a little break now from Blogland until DD goes back to school in September. I want to spend some quality time with her and DH without the distraction of computers and crafting. They are both very understanding of my hobbies but I feel guilty when I don't pay proper attention to what is going on around me. DD is growing up fast and time is precious so I hope you'll understand if I don't get round to visiting you for a few weeks.

Enjoy the rest of your Summer, whatever the weather and see you in September.



Fabulous Fusion projects Lisa - I spotted them on Sheena's blog gallery earlier today and they really are beautiful.
Enjoy your holiday and "time out" - there is nothing more important than family.

I agree with everything you say about recent events in this country - it truly is abhorrent.
Will be in touch - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Shameful behaviour on our streets, I too feel embarrassed it's just dreadful.
Good idea to take some time for the family, enjoy the break. I look forward to visiting after the hols:0) Gay xxx

Such beautiful cards Lisa, I especially love the one with the Ivy down the centre, it’s stunning!

I hope you have some wonderful times with your daughter of the summer, family time is so precious.

I look forward to seeing your latest creations when you came back and join us again. Take care.

Hi Lisa, great cards with the Paint Fusion.
Enjoy your 'holiday' with DD, they do grow up so quickly. (My DD returned to Preston this morning for her 'term time' work before starting 4th year of Uni. I'm missing her already -keeping busy catching up in blogland)
Hope the weather improves and you can all enjoy it.

Hi Lisa, fabulous projects you have for us here. I love them both but the ivy one has to be my favourite. I love to see ivy anywhere and anytime of year.

Enjoy your precious family time and look forward to seeing your lovely work again in a few weeks.

I double ditto everything you said in your opening paragraph. It makes me very fearful for the life my lovely grandchildren will have to face.

I have managed to catch up (started just before the daises and poppies canvas so hopefully you will find the comment explaining the catch up lol). I think its nice that your taking timeout for your daughter they grow up really fast. I also know sometimes we find that life gets in the way, like me when my DD was suffering with ears and had to have a op. Wow loving the crimbo paibt fusion, I ordered it on Friday for my b'day on 1st sept lol. I am embarresed how our country is at the moment, even more so that kids are doing it as well and the parents agreeing with it. Hope you have a fab rest of August and see you in Sept. Kezzy x

Elizabeth said...

Hi Lisa, your fusion projects are gorgeous. Hope you are enjoying your time with your family right now and that you are getting some semi-decent weather. The children here have all gone back to school this week and there is a decided touch of autumn in the air - leaves on the trees are starting to turn too. See you when you get back. Elizabeth x

Claire Phillips said...

Quite right Lisa - enjoy your time together!
Fabulous projects - those ivy leaves are wonderful! Cheers Claire x
