Flowers 4 - limited supplies

The last of these cards and it feels like a goodbye but I can assure you it is not, it was too much fun to not do again.

Bit of an unusual colour for this one but I found a pack of card and wanted to use it up, I do like the end result though.

Flowers 3 - limited supplies

I think this might be my favourite colour one I made and I even had a person in mind when I coloured it, now of course I notice the sentiment is wonky but it’s too late I’ve already sent it.

I am already planning what to take on my next trip and I’m excited to see what else I can create with limited supplies, of course my limited supplies is larger than when I first started making cards way back in 2005 lol.

Flowers number 2 - limited supplies

I had such a lot of fun with the pencils on this card, I had forgotten the sheer joy colouring brings me and how it quietens the mind too. I got into a bit of a routine on this trip, get up, go for a long walk, come back  and make a huge coffee and then sit and colour. Writing about it is making me miss it even more and I can’t wait to be doing it again.

Flowers - limited supplies

This is another of the limited supplies cards, last year I bought one of the Hero Arts kits exclusive to Joann Fabric and never used it so I decided to take it with me and see if that worked. I loved colouring such a big bold image with pencils, I might have made a few more too lol.

I do think this will be what I do every trip no matter how small the timescale, colouring with a coffee/tea was just an amazing way to start the day.

It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing…

I was looking through my old cards and came across a card that I knew the recipient loved so I thought why not make it again, I think I made the original about 12 years ago but I still had everything I needed to recreate, it helped that it was mostly digital lol.

Making this made me remember why I do this card making thing, the sheer joy of creating something from paper and card, knowing it will bring a smile to the recipient is an added bonus.

Frame it in

Another of the holiday cards, pencils this time and a design I’ve not tried before, definitely one I will try again though as I really like the frame idea. I found some very old stamped images and that is what I took away with me, I have already been on another trip since I made this and again I coloured older images, it felt good to show the images some love.

Tremendous Two

It was time for the tremendous two to turn two so I thought why reinvent the wheel and went with the same design as I used for the magnificent seven girls last year. I did remember to add a sentiment this time too.
