Seems a Little Sketchy - Thinking of You
Hello Everyone, Happy New Year.
Did you see the firework display in London on the TV last night it was absolutely fantastic?
Well I made it through another New Years Eve. It has never been my favourite time of the year, made even worse 10 years ago by the death of my son Adam.
I lit a candle and took flowers. In fact the Grandchildren all came with me which was nice. Saskia wanted to know when he was going to pop up, which took a little explaining that he wouldn't, but at least it made me smile lol.
The main image is by Clarity Asian Bamboo, and has been stamped onto a piece of handmade background paper from my stash.
Seems a Little Sketchy.
The ribbon is from Woodware.
The greeting has also been cut out using a nestie, which has been left in place while distress ink is sponged over the image. This is what creates the thin white line around the edge once the nestie has been removed.
Swirl Flourish. I also added some stitching using a fine black pen.
Everyone has had a nice lazy morning, so the chaos and noise hasn't kicked in yet, it's only a matter of time, I can hear footsteps on the stairs.
Have a great day, and once again I hope that you all have a very Happy New Year.
