Sunday 4 November 2012


the inside
Happy Sunday, all. Hope you've had a lovely relaxing day. I'm starting to panic about Christmas and the fact that I've made hardly any cards yet, so I thought I'd better get on and remedy the situation! I intended to make mainly CAS style cards this year, they look classy (and they tend to be faster...!) but I felt like colouring (so therapeutic!!!) and this is the result. The image is by Mo Manning, printed onto kraft paper and coloured with pencils, matted onto various papers with added faux stitching and a bow.
Have a good evening!
