Caroline telephoned from Bolivia and we had a long talk. The joys of the Internet.
I love looking at boat names and wondering how their names came about. This one must tell a story.
Thought I'd give you a rest from Christmas cards as I've just finished another 40 cards - all different and different from the previous 30 which were for this customer's mother!!
This card was for a 4th anniversary and I had great fun going to town on it. Though it was not all my art work I did copy the idea and colour scheme.

What are all these signs about? They have sprung up all along the towpaths in the centre of Birmingham
What do they mean? Who are the designed for? Surely anyone who is commuting along the towpath or jogging or whatever already knows about it so you don't need a sign to tell them.

Life has been going on apace.
There are lots of strange signs popping up along the towpath (pictures next time) which BW have paid a fortune for. The are of no use to anyone and just litter the place.
We had a moorers gathering yesterday, lots to drink !
David and I are off to Lisbon on Monday for five days - so I don't think I'll be blogging for a few days.
I have just had another order for 40 cards from the daughter of the couple who ordered this lot. So I have lots of work to get on with.
This one was made from blue paper with small white stars mounted onto red mirror card and silver card. White ribbon and a bow, a chipboard Christmas tree and three red stars.
And this one was stamped and embossed with copper embossing powder, then mounted on silver, green and silver card. The green card was cut with deckle edged scissors. Green ribbon was wound around two corners and a bow stuck to the top one. The right had side of the front of the card was also cut with deckle scissors and some red crinkly, shiny paper stuck down the right side of the inside back of the card.
