Hello everybody and happy Halloween .
Do you know the days that nothing is going the way it should be....? So, today is one of these days - I tried to make a card and couldn't make it right with my markers. The second try was to paint with watercolour pencils and my waterbrush split water all over. 
The 3rd try was a little bit better but this is not the end of the story ....
I made the card accorording to a sketch from critter sketch challenge blog  and didn't notice the it should include ....buttons (lol).
So this time the card is going to enter the following challenges: 
Color Throwdown - colours
Critter Sketch blog - sketch and buttons (sorry that I have no buttons)
Raise the Bar - go ,go ,go (wheels)

Who doesn't think about the future?
I don't think about I dream about it. Tonight I was dreaming about being retirement ,sitting on a white beach(maybe in Thailand) with a glass of good coctail in my hand, staying in the sun ....the good life . No more work ,no more pressure. Suddenly the alarm clock was ringing and....the early hour made me realized it was all just a dream. 

So , I wake up and starting to create a new card ....a retirement one.
I'm entering this card to the following challenges:
The Sarah Hurley challenges blog- colouring

Don't you want to be there?

Tour to Nazareth

As I told you before I've been in Nazareth at the last weekend . We took guided tour to the old city ,a very interesting one. I thought maybe you would like to see some of the pictures . 
Because my english is not so good ,I put links to english explanations . 
Enjoy the tour . 

A general view at the city of Nazareth - at the north district of Israel .

We started at the highest spot of the city at the Salesian Church - one of the most beautiful churches .

The next stop is the Mensa Christi Church  - according to the christian tradition it is the place of the last meal.

 From there we went throught the alleys ,between pig trees to the painted house. At the old days the rich families used to decorate their houses with wall or ceilling paints. 

Our next stop was the White Mosque in the middle of the market - I didn't took pictures there .

Now we arrived to the Bassilica of the  Annunciation - a very impressive place  at the c
enter of town . 

And off course ,how it could be without the market -a very colorful one. 

Well , I hope you all enjoy my tour . 
See you next time .

I did itI did it..

I did it is not a secret that I don't know how to colour stamps. Most of the time i'm using coloured digital images, but not any more ....
After long hours trying to colour in watercolour pencils I decided to get over my fear and put one of them on a card. 
So it is and I would be grateful if I receive constructive comments to improve painting . 

The stamp is Nikki from Ladybug that I've won .
