This card I made for my Granny's birthday, she is where I think my creative genes come from. She is a wonderful painter, and taught art for years. For this one I made I made a paper flower and used letter transfers.
And this is a little wedding card for a friend, I used Photoshop and my tablet and pen and did a cake doodle. I really like it, it's plain simple yet fun! I have been working on some designs to use in this style for the shop, but just don't seem to have the time at the moment.
I really enjoy making cards using different styles and techniques depending on the occassion and its the same when I receive them too. Plus it has been great getting the creative juices going again and doing something other than cleaning up and washing :) I found this quote;
"Dreams are postcards from our subconscious, inner self to outer self, right brain trying to cross that moat to the left. Too often they come back unread: "return to sender, addressee unknown." That's a shame because it's a whole other world out there--or in here depending on your point of view. "

I have a vivid memory of a project we did at primary school all about writing and recieving letters, and we al got a ;ittle fold out book with stories and ideas for interesting ways to 'make' a letter. I loved the little book and kept ift for about 10 years then it disappeared :(
What is it about card/ letters that makes you smile?
