Another beautiful day has begun...and I made a card to share which is one of those cards that has a real sentimental tug to it.
I saw a challenge over at Winter Wonderland and this image popped straight into my head, and I knew exactly what I wanted the achieve with it.
"Across the miles" is the theme and this means so much to me as it is going to my Brother[ for sure]
In New Zealand at Christmas we [hopefully] have sun and hot weather...right in the middle of summer...but be assured that does not stop me cooking the traditional Christmas dinner.
So this card is inspired by the challenge AND our Chrtistmas weather....
I'm so happy how this one turned out...The image is from Whoopsie Daisy...had her for a long time.
Coloured with pencils,and inked the sky and sea..used a post it note to mask to get the horizon.
Used real sand for the beach, and white paint for the sea foam...
Added the sentiment. and a few flowers and ribbon.
I'm going to also enter this card at Simon Says and it is anything goes.
If I seem very quiet today, it's because I'm exhausted...I've decided I do not like looking after 2 homes, birds,cats,dogs, dealing with mechanics, grumpy clients,and going between computers, one for comments one for posting, a bed thats it too hard....roll on Friday [tomorrow] for me, as I'm sleeping in my own bed...just for the night, I'm aching everywhere.
Oaky doaky...thats me done, hope you like my card, time to head off to work, sorry for the grump, but I feel better now...
