Watercolour Noel Heather Telford

I would like to wish you a wonderful Christmas. Thank you for visiting here and encouraging me with your comments. I appreciate all the kind words, I am happy to answer questions when I can and yes, I am hoping to make some tutorials in the new year! I have met many lovely people through blogging, most only in the virtual world but some I have been privileged to meet in person. I hope to get to know more of you in the year to come.

I pray that you will know the peace that Jesus can give this Christmas and that you will experience God’s blessing in your life in the new year.

Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord,
That hath made heaven and earth of nought,
And with his blood mankind has bought.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

    Wishing you and your family many Christmas Blessings. Your Blog has been SUCH a wealth of inspiration, education and just pure enjoyment of your wonderful talent.

    Heather, it’s been so inspiring to follow your blog, read about how you make your fab cards, and then try to do the techniques myself (a big learning curve!). I’m so looking forward to more tutorials from you, & hope someday we’ll be able to meet in person & maybe I can get in one of your classes! I was in Reston VA last year, not too long after you taught a class there. Boo hoo! Merry Christmas, and tfs one more wonderful card today. Hugs

    Merry Christmas to you and yours! I’d love it if you could do a video tutorial of your watercolor technique. I’ve tried to do it following your written directions with less than stellar results. I’m obviously missing a step somewhere! Love the look of yours. Happy New Year and thank you for sharing your creations.

    Happy New Year! I have just found your blog thanks to Ardyth. Your work is amazing, esp. your watercolouring cards. I’ll be back soon for tips, techniques and inspiration. In the meantime, I’ll try to locate my masking fluid. Looks like I’m going to need it this year.
