A New Zealand Christmas Card
I used Hero Arts "Big Pine Bough" to be my tree and then added a few dots of red gel pen to represent the flowers.
The sentiment is from a company called Paper Inspirations that I picked up in Australia about 3 years ago. I don't think they are in existence any longer. It is a nice sentiment and seems to go well with this design. I used Weathered Wood distress ink to stamp the branches. This card was so quick that within 1/2 hr I had 3 made.
My next card is one I did for a friend at work. It used a stamp from a Freebie set from a UK magazine. My friend Linda has a little Shih Tzu but this little Westie remind me of him....
I coloured the dog with Copics. As I used some Hot of the Press paper for the background and coloured the puppy's coat to match. A fun card.
Tonight I made two cards that were inspired by this one from Debby... just waiting for some glitter glue to dry before taking a photo tomorrow. One is almost a CASE of Debby's. Hopefully I'll get time to post in the next few days. I'm very excited about my parent's arriving tomorrow afternoon. I've got all the presents wrapped and under the tree, the room is ready and all that's left to do is go out to the airport in the afternoon.
Thanks to you all for visiting and leaving such lovely comments, I do appreciate them. I hope you all have a great weekend.
