The title of this post goes for the card and the weather .... eeeeeep .... it is FREEZING here!!
Maybe that's why white looks so good right now? I love every colour at the mo - so long as it's white. Scratch head. Shake head. Move on :0) LOL!
If you noticed a smell of burning rubber when you pulled in - that would be me - screaming in to meet the deadline for Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge - #62. These colours are so way beyond gorgeous and I've been meaning to play there for a while. So to see in the New Year - playing this challenge is something .... NEW :0)!
The flowers were stamped and embossed on vellum and then pigment ink was rubbed on the back side. I absolutely LOVE this look on a solid sheet of vellum - and wondered what it would be like if the flowers were cut out afterwards ... this is the result :0)
The leaves were fussy cut and then holes were pierced in them for the veins ... you can see them a bit behind the flowers and I'm still trying to decide if that bugs me or not?? Hmmmm. Need to give that a few days before a final verdict. (Any outside opinions?)
This will be the last post of 2010 - amazing thought. I really do wish everyone the MOST WONDERFUL 2011. It's always strange looking at my Day Planner for the year ahead. So many days and no notion at all of what they're going to hold. Some birthdays that I'm writing down - I honestly don't know if those people will still be here when their big day comes around. So we're just planning on being grateful for them every day that we *do* have!
My Hunkadorus' uncle used to love writing in cards:
Be grateful for the Past, Live in the Present .... and leave the Future in God's hands ...
MANY blessings wished to all!
