I can't believe we're a month into the New Year and that means I haven't posted on my blog for four months! Somehow, the time has raced past me with so much happening, excluding my creative time. I've missed it so much, and enjoyed making my greeting cards for Christmas and the New Year. Even though they were an imperative, they were also a great excuse to be creating rather than putting it down the priority list. I'll put up a back-dated post about them.
I missed sharing comments with friends too. If you wonder what this desk-hopping about, follow this link to Julia Dunnit at the hub of it all.
For now, here is my first birthday card for 2012.
The hammered card stock makes a square card with two features. At the top left hand is foil coloured with alcohol inks and dry embossed with birds in tree folder. Light sanding brings the edges of the embossed pattern back to silver. At the bottom right is a favourite quote from poet Rabindranath Tagor stamped with green Staz-On on gloss card. The edges are shaded with Colorbox chalk inks and a colour duster. Inside, the message says "A little bird told me it is your birthday".
Best wishes to all,
