Thank you and farewell cards

As always I've made thank you cards for all the presents received and here the one I made for this year.

I made fifteen and got the boys to sign their names after I wrote the card. They love getting involved. Aiden chose the colour combination for this card. I told him to choose three colours and these were the ones he chose and I came up with a card. As you can see I am currently partial to the chevron pattern! I used Tim Holtz distressed inks for this card - peeled paint, spiced marmalade and chipped sapphire. The circular 'Thank You' stamp is from Hero Arts.

The following is a farewell card that I made for a member of my team that left just before the Christmas break. Some basic stamping and colouring with Inktense colour pencils and running a water brush (carefully!) over the coloured areas.

Oh geez, I have not shared the Christmas cards I made this year. Hope I had taken pictures of them. That'll be the next post. Not quite in the chronological order, but hey ho. G'night.

2013 Calendar

This is my first post for the year. Happy new year to all.

I hope to post more often this year...need to manage my time better I guess. Anyhow I have done my yearly calendar. Usually it is full of digital die cutting elements, but this year it is all stamping, even the days of each month. Sat in front of the TV and completed the days and dates in a night and the rest on the next best craft time is when the boys are in bed as there will be no interruptions. So here it is...

The boys wanted to sign their names on the final cover page and so they did:) Luke is just about getting the 'e' the right way around.

That's all for now. Will post more over the week. Goodnight.
