Vintage Icing Decoration, Holiday Photos and Festive Wishes

Hi all, hope you are all well and not too stressed!!!

For my post this week over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I have made a vintage icing decoration, I did have two but the star shape broke.  Hoping to fix it lol!!  When I get the chance.

I really struggled getting a good photo, but it definately sparkles from using the spicas!  I have used them on the outline of the images and to colour too!  Some of the embellishments were coloured with copics.

Copics and Spicas used

B28, BG10, BV08, C00, C1, RV66, YR12

You still have eight days to enter our current Mad for Markers Christmas Challenge we look forward to seeing your festive creations.


Personal for those that are interested.

We took a break (9th-16th) and went to the high country and stayed near a place called Mansfield.  It was like a bigger version of the Lake District, we saw Kangaroos, Deer, Wallaby, Wombat, Yabby, Kookaburra, Long necked Turtle, three types of parrot and two types of Heron and this doesn’t include the zoo! Oh and I nearly forgot, Morgan got quite a scare from a Tiger snake.

The view from our accomodation at Liptelvin, pet friendly, so Rusty came away with us and even had his own accomodation which he shared with Ben his play buddy.

The fog on one side of Mount Buller (ski resort in the winter)

How awesome is this sculputered water melon!!

A quick break on our 40k bike trek from Mansfield to Bonne Doon

This was taken at the zoo

A long Necked Turtle, which we nearly run over, we rescued him/her and the children placed it in the creek

How fluffy are those clouds, took this one for inspiration when I have another practice at colouring clouds with my copics lol!

We had a wonderful family holiday (the first time we have had a chilling out one) Edward’s injury to his foot slowed him down some. (Accident at work a job jumped on his foot and just missed his safety shoe, so he ended up with 3 stitches across the top of his foot). Though we did manage a 40K bike ride, bike riding is a little easier on his foot. Rosanna and Morgan both went on a two hour horse ride and thoroughly enjoyed it! We keep saying we must do more of this!  Got to be one of our best family breaks. The views were breathtaking.  Came back and have worked since lol!  Still haven't got my Xmas Tree/Decs up yet, hopefully tonight.

Hope to catch up with you all soon

Wishing you all a magical Christmas and a fun and healthy 2012, take careX:)
