The trouble with being on holidays is that I'm so busy doing new things that I forget to do usual things.....one of those is the ironing, but I'm not hurrying to do that any time soon. So this is catch-up post to keep track of things.
First some birthday cards I made for dear friends and just in time for the Birthday Challenge at Opus Gluei. The first one was for my friend Ann and is a long way outside my comfort-zone, but right in hers. We've been friends for so long that I have to make sure I dont ever make two cards the same for her....
I wanted it to be bright and cheerful, and to have nothing pink (but that's just because she and I have an understanding about that)....so it has ribbon and bling and fluffy flowers, and its a beautiful gentle orange instead.
The second card is for Emmy, my walking buddy, my recipe-sharing buddy, my dear friend.
It grew from the tiny piece of blue and black embossed paper. The photograph makes it look more sombre than it is in real life. Can't believe I still have some of this ribbon left - a gift from Lisa several years ago, and carefully hoarded ever since!
