Hello, friends, and happy 2018! Are you ready for a fresh start? I generally feel super charged at the beginning of a new year. However, I'm off to a slow start in terms of stamping. I'm reading similar stories on many of the blogs I visit, so at least I'm not alone. It will get better eventually.
Today I have two birthday cards I made in the middle of the busy Christmas season, so I was happy to have everything I needed to keep them simple, but pretty. The die is Tutti Bird Tapestry, which is retiring, but I'll always think it's the prettiest thing. You know how I feel about birds and flowers, sigh...
In the photo below you can get a better look at the alcohol-inks-on-acetate background behind the die. Playing with alcohol inks is on my 2018 to-do list, but these backgrounds were made for me by my friend, Nancy. The Bird Tapestry die cuts were shared by my friend, Sherri. See what lovely friends I have? Thanks girls!
The second card has a more subtle background, but still very pretty. I like warm colors.
Moving right along... I will be here Wednesday with the Double D Challenge. Wishing you all a happy new year!
