Gas Street Basin, BCN
Snow, snow and more snow.
Two days before we left we were sitting at this table in the warm sunshine.
David has worked hard keeping a path on the pontoon and the towpath clear of snow, but it has been hard work.
The pavements are lethal.
The poor daffodils are suffering. They have been in "bud" for 3 weeks now.
The flowers are encased in ice, with icicles forming on the bottoms.
The snow didn't stop our daughter and son-in-law driving over from Nottingham for her birthday lunch.
She is now 5 months pregnant and is expecting a boy.
The stamp is a Kraftin Kimmie and called Caroline. So I had to use it didn't I?
I coloured her in with watercolour paints and cut it out using a die, the edge was coloured with ink. I drew around the die and cut out another white label and then cut out another one in patterned paper.
The backing paper was stuck to a duck-egg blue card blank, leaving a small border. Then I added the topper with sticky fixers.
