Monday 2 November 2015


This tile says Halloween is over and Christmas is a-coming. Honestly, it is only the 2nd of November and already the shops have carols playing and I have seen Christmas adverts on the TV! 

Verdigogh, Joey's Challenge this week, has never come easily to me so green needles with red berries just helps it along, even if it does scream Christmas. The needles never seem to fall in the right place for me. It does help once you put the berries on, that seems to bring it together a bit, but I look forward to the day when I can draw it in a more refined way like some of the gorgeous ones I have seen on other people's blogs.


  1. Ha sorry! When I chose Verdigogh a few weeks ago I didn't check the date to see what week it would fall on. I agree it is a tangle that can feel Christmassy. As it happens, I'm not fond of Halloween so as soon as it's over I'm full steam ahead into Christmas!
    I love how you have drawn your challenge in green and the berries add a cherry feel!
    Thanks for participating each week!

  2. I'm liking this a lot, Ms Tortoise. And I'm not a Christmas fan, but I think it just looks wintergreen-y. Like your auras, too.

  3. YT, your Joey is lovely!!! I found the berries helped too ... good job!!! :) :)
