No that’s not a typo. I have had a standing commission for the last few years to make a card for my friend’s nan who reaches the grand age of 103 early next month. I heard the other day that she had tried pasta for the first time and quite enjoyed it. Sweet!
Surprise, surprise, I have gone with that Sue Wilson inspired card design again. Why? Well because I think they are pretty and I kind of have it sussed out. Maybe that’s being lazy but I tend to err towards a sensible use of my time especially when I have a lot to do. Promise I’ll find something new to obsess on very soon!!
Once again I used a pattern paper, this time from Theresa Collins. I chose yellow/orange for this year – we are gradually working our way through the colours – and glittered over the paper using an adhesive sheet. So blingy!
All the flowers are handmade, I’m trying to perfect this little dahlia type style. They come from the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland strip die.
What a privilege to make something pretty for such a special lady. Roll on next year!!
