Good morning everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the unseasonal mildness, can't really say that I am, its not right. I prefer it when the seasons are defined by the weather!
I thought I would give you a brief break from the Christmas cards today, only today mind you :o)
Had a phone call from my cousin yesterday, she wants 40 Christmas cards so I had better get my skates on then. At least what she wants is a very simple design and all the same so I can set up a production line LOL.
How many of you knew that there were hands free can openers around. I didn't until I saw my daughter using one so I thought it would be ideal for Stephen as he is one handed since his stroke.
He is much more independent now, 2+ years after, but of course, tins defeat him. Anyhow, it arrived yesterday and it is the best invention ever, absolutely brilliant. You just put it on top of the tin, press the button and watch it do it's thing, amazing LOL.
Oooooops! I digress so on to my card for today :o)
My usual 5x7 card, folded and cut from an A4 sheet of white linencard.
My photograph, taken at Trent Lock in June this year, feathered in PSP7 and printed onto the same white linencard, then cut with Grand Nestie, as is the blue layer.
Sentiment stamped and punched with SU.
This is my original photograph. The colour of the tarp on the boat seems to have changed with feathering :o)
