I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We have had our house full of people, 12 in total, so it has been very busy in the kitchen, but loads of fun as well.

I can’t believe that today is the last day of 2015. What are your plans for celebrating New Year’s Eve? We are heading down town for an annual firework display over the harbour and then we’ll play some games to bring in the New Year.

Today I am sharing a thank you card as I want to thank all of you, my blog readers, for your support and encouragement this year. I hope that you have found some inspiration from the cards that I make. I really appreciate all your comments.

Today I’ve used Penny Black dies, stamps and stencils on this card. And I got to use my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour set that my hubby got for me for Christmas. Wow they are so creamy and luscious.

Thank you Penny Black | Marion Vagg

  2. beautiful card Marion, totally agree with Therese, LOVE the Kuretakes. Doing the butterfly in vellum totally works. Love it

  3. Love this card. I have been struggling with finding a color medium. I think I will give the Kuretakes a try.

  4. This is awesome…..I love the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, too! They are rich and creamy and a little more opaque than regular watercolors.
