Happy Birthday, Sis!!

Today is my sister, Tracy's birthday.

My cat, Thomas was also born this day, he would have been 17 if he were still with me.

I had real fun making this card & didn't really want to give it away when complete!!

I used alcohol inks on the frame. The iris is stamped using the brushless watercolour tehnique onto artists watercolour paper.

Everything was inked within an inch of its life & collaged together. I used an inked ghost heart, my favourite tiny gingham bow & cute letters in shades of purple.

I've been busy making things but everything is in stages of completion. From sketched & materials selected to almost done!!! Some I can't share & some are preparations for my team CJ. I am also doing a 10 wk project about work but haven't got anything other tha ideas down.

I haven't done the DCM mid week dare this week as it just didn't appeal to me. I struggled enough with the last one. I didn't do the One Little Word either as nothing came together in my head & I was too busy preparing for my bosses retirement.

Bet she loved this card Paula.
the midweek DCM is a tricky one this time - you can blame Lythan for it!

I think maybe you'll like the new main dare we have lined up for tomorrow though ;-)
