Last Challenges of 2007

I am combining two challenges in one today. The reason being, I have been into work today & have only just got home & sorted from shopping etc.. & I went in against my bettter judgement as I spent the majority of yesterday in bed unwell. My friend Louise, wasn't well on Christmas Day while I was at her house & both her parnter & I started with it the day after Boxing day. Its just a bug thingy aching joints, & tiredness. So I haven't been in blog land or any land for that matter other than nod!
This is my last piece of art for 2007 & it is for my very final AJ, Deck of Me challenge card 52- Art & TMTA, Fireworks of colour. I have done two shots of it, one with flash & one without, so you can get an idea of the true colour. I used alcohol inks Red Pepper, Eggplant, Wild Plum & a few drops of Silver mixatives.
The word Happy represents how I feel right now when I think about art. The tree (Crafty Individuals) represents growth as I hope my creativity will grow more.
I have a few more things to share with you in the New Year but for now I wish you all a very Happy & Creative 2008!
