4x4 notecard

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world and you are not badly affected by the remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo...hugs

I made this little notecard weeks ago and never got around to uploading it while I was preoccupied with Christmas cards. At the moment this is the last one I have to show you whilst I am in the middle of a 40 Christmas card order and every one of them needs to be hand coloured so they are taking forever! I hope I will be able to get something made in very soon! At the moment I am about to start colouring #26 of the 40, then of course there is all the folding, cutting to size and inserts to do. Methinks I will be begging for mercy by the time I get to the end of them LOL.

Onto my little card for today.

This is Ganesh Vijay, he was born at Twycross Zoo in 2009, but sadly died about 18 months later! In this photograph he is only a few days old. I took a few more photographs when he was a month or so old so although he is gone he is not forgotten.
I designed the card in SCAL and cut it on the Cricut. My Cricut is the original one (nearly 8 years old) from before we could connect them to the internet so I can only cut smaller cards.
Printed onto white linen card and cut with Spellbinders. I hope you like it :o)

Awwww that's such a sad story! But he lives on in your photo which looks so good on this card!

My goodness you do sound busy! I had a man email me last week from California to see if I could do 100 New Home cards (he was part of the committee for a retirement place there)... I did say yes as he was happy to pay the price I quoted for each... but I was quietly glad that the shipping costs put him off!!

Big hugs
