Happy New Year to one and all! I'm hoping that 2012 brings an economic up-turn, vastly improved lives for those living under oppressive regimes and a lessening of the amount of civil unrest in the world. When I watch the news these days, it is so often sad and bewildering. Why do we humans do such terrible things to each other? I think everyone should take up card crafting. It's such a passive calming hobby. It produces pretty things that give the maker a sense of satisfaction and (hopefully) the recipient a sense of feeling loved or appreciated. I'm sure that if more people made cards and got involved in our friendly on-line crafting community, there would be more beauty and less violence in this world of ours!
I'm starting this year with a foursome of "anything goes" challenges for Crafts and Me, Simon Says, Creative Inspirations and Charisma Cardz.
I have used one of the beautiful Crafts and Me girlies, coloured in Copics on a background of Prima Pixie Glen DP with some DCWV texted paper, two MS butterfly punches and three tiny buttons. My girlie has soft pink lips which I glazed and my camera flash has taken away the colour in the photo.
I really enjoyed making this card which has been stamped with one of my very first sentiment stamps reading"you're so special". Unfortunately, I don't know the make.
HAVE A WONDERFUL YEAR!
