Cheers!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are well and keeping warm!

I have not been around much in blogland because (drum role) I have had my first commission ~ yay!

Remember this card, well the recipient contacted me and asked if I could make it into Christmas cards for him and I said yes ~ well what else was I going to say!  They finally went in the post today all the way to Spain ~ yes I've gone international!  Will post some photos later.

Today I have a quick share ~ this is a card I made for a friend, who like me enjoys the odd glass of red.


I saw these stamps in a magazine feature earlier in the year and bought the whole set, ideal when you want a slightly quirky and humerous card ~ not everyone likes cute.

When I had finished colouring the image, I decided I didn't like the colour of her dress (blue), so I had a lightbulb moment ~ don't get many of those ~ and decided to paper piece it.  I think it works okay?

It doesn't show up on the photo, but I used Glossy Accents on the wine glass to make it sparkle.

CARD RECIPE

Colouring Medium: Copics

Well, must dash ~ housework to catch up on after all that card making ~ lol!
