I think I must dream about making cards because from time to time I wake up with the plan for a card. Then the rush is on to get pen to paper before I forget it! (These days I almost have to lassoo thoughts as they pass through my cerebellum!).
This is a card I woke up thinking about. It's for a dear friend who is making a sea change to live by the beach in Victoria near her family. Whilst I'll miss her sorely, it's a great move and I'm very happy for her.

The deck chair is from a new stamp set, called Colourful Seasons, that will be released in June in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.
The "neighbourhood" greeting is from the new stamp set, In The City and the "Congratulations" is from another new stamp set called Fabulous Flamingo.
I stamped the deck chair first and added a bit of shading with an Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil. I then stamped, coloured (with watercolour pencils), dressed and fussy cut the two ladies from Beautiful You. For the one by the chair, I trimmed off a little dress to fit her behind the chair and added a suggestion of legs with a Calypso Coral Watercolour Pencil. I used the Early Espresso pencil again to add the shadow under the feet of the lady with the parasol. I didn't feel inclined to fussy cut the tiny areas such as between arm and hat, so I simply coloured them in with the Bermuda Bay Watercolour Pencil.
|This greeting from the new Eastern Beauty stamp set seemed very appropriate for the inside of my card|
Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
