My first card for 2012 was inspired by Tiffany. For those of you who know Tiffany, her cards are wonderful... always so elegant, beautiful and just so inspiring. This one, was stunningly beautiful. I loved the design she used and the sentiment both of which inspired me to CASE it.
I used a flower from Hero Arts, Bold Blooms set, and some Soft Apricot Shadow ink to stamp a background. I stamped a larger flower in the ink and sponged it. Once I cut it out, I popped it onto the card and added some gems and Stickles. The sentiment is also a Hero Arts one... a limited edition for Breast Cancer Awareness. To make the mat I dragged the ink pad around the edge of some white card. Perfect match. Thanks Tiffany for such wonderful inspiration.
My cold is still with me. I didn't last till midnight on New Years Eve... crashing about 10.00pm. Then Sunday night, was coughing and snorting so much, poor hubby took himself off to his armchair in the lounge to sleep the night! Today, the cough in rumbling round my chest, I sound terrible but don't feel too bad.
I thought I'd just share a photo I took today from the deck... our weather has been shocking... rain and wind... but for part of the day, it was lovely and sunny and the Pohutukawa tree across at our neighbours is looking stunning.
I hope the New Year is starting well for you all.
