After a very slow start I have finally managed to design and finish a number of Christmas Cards. This is better than previous years when I haven't done any at all. I am using my favourite Neuland script.
This is my version of a Christmas/New Year card this year for my lovely friend Ann who sent me an amazing hand made card. It is the only card I have made for this Christmas. The time has just flown by. I know that Christmas always comes at the same time each year but it is still manages to creep up on me without me noticing. This card is a beautiful eco print both back and front and inside. The green circles were from onion rings. It is amazing the different colours that can be achieved.
Just completed an illuminated letter F for a friend.
I have been taking lessons with the most beautiful person. Pamela is 84 and an inspiration to us all. She still goes to the gym, uses the internet all the time to source more and more examples of illumination for us to study and takes classes on a Thursday.
At the moment she is unwell so I am wishing her a speedy recovery.
Here is a small selection of the cards I am using this year to keep in touch with people at Christmas time. I'm still loving eco printing and I have found so many uses for the prints I have done. Just love them.
I have been very busy lately sewing a skirt for my granddaughter's year 10 formal. She is so very slim that probably anything would look good. Anyway it is finished and she looks great.
I have now moved on to another illuminated letter just to get back into the swing of things. Very satisfying. It is very peaceful choosing the colours and completing illuminated letters. Just what I needed.
This illuminated letter is for a friend's birthday.
