Hope everyone had an excellent Christmas. I spent a lot of time with my family, eating a WHOLE LOTTA food, reading, watching TV and generally unwinding. Did manage to get all my cards made and sent off in time and managed to do a birthday card or two as well. I only managed to take a picture of one though. I can share it with you now since it was for my big sister and her birthday is over so she won't be surprised. Here it is:
The image is from Kraftin' Kimmie. The tickets are PTI. Paper is some stuff I had in my stash. Colouring is something that constantly frustrates me so I'm constantly working on it. Don't ask how long it took to colour her hair...45 minutes and it still doesn't look right to me. Anyways, my sister loved her card - it sits on her fireplace mantle. I just love Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. I love how the girls are cute but slightly maniacal....just like me...in my own head. When I had finished colouring and was pretty happy with it, I showed the image to my DH Charlie. You know what he said to me?!?! "She doesn't look Chinese." Sheesh. Whatever.
Anyways, gotta get back to cleaning and cooking. Having the family over for hot pot tonight. Kind of an annual tradition for us. You do all the prep work and everyone cooks their own food in big pots of hot soup. Very warm and nourishing for winter time.
Hope everyone has a very happy New Year. Hope 2011 brings to you good health, happiness, good times and plenty of creative opportunities.
