Magical Talisman


"Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air. " John Quincy Adams


Sharing a favorite beach for evening walks with the fast disappearing light turning the sky pretty shades of pink.


Visit
Sky Watch Friday to see what colours are on show with hundreds of bloggers from all over the world.

In the spirit of sharing a little magic there is a give away happening over on the Tattered Angels web site linked to an announcement of good things they have hatching.

I was experimenting with Tattered Angels embossed chipboard that has a lovely white base, using clear gloss on the raised parts creates a pretty contrast to the misted colours.
