Hello Everyone..

It is Art Deco weekend in my City, Napier, this weekend, folk from all over come and party up, long lunches, plane rides, the tour ships come through especially for this weekend..people and dogs, vintage cars and all sorts of stuff even soap box races..

I usually have cards to make for the weekend, and I have, but they were made prior and packed up and gone and guess what ninny did not photograph them..

A least today I can share this one, it was an order for a client and just happened to be art deco..vintage..

Oh, I must say, I was happy with this one..all dies.

The balloon was layered with the gold...

The couple only had their skin coloured...

The car was coloured with markers then the gold layered on..

The papers are foiled papers, I didn't do it, they came like that..and I love that big frame die cut in navy card stock..

Just added a few sequins and gold sentiment die, I was happy, the client was happy, and tomorrow is my day off and I will be even happier..

Thanks so much for stopping by..see you soon.


A few photos of my beautiful city..Napier New Zealand..

The beach pretty close to the city...but you cannot swim here, it is too dangerous, rips and dips but we have another beach around the corner and that is safe..

At night looking down and across..

Our marine parade..
