Brain like a sieve

I have a friend with a birthday on Christmas day and usually I post both cards at the same time. This year, I totally forgot so I decided to make her a New Year hello card by way of a substitute.



She speaks lots of languages so I though the French sentiment was appropriate - I got it in a grab-bag of stamps from Alluring Impressions just before Christmas. The background stamp is one I won during Lisa Strahl's birthday celebrations at Cornish Heritage Farms.

Supplies: Single Black Eyed Susan and Broad Stripe Backgrounder (both Cornish Heritage Farms), sentiment by Alluring Impressions, Adirondak Cool Peri, Tsukineko Brilliance Pearlescent Crimson, Clearsnap Chalk Wisteria, Tria markers, white gel pen, paper piercer

Happy New Year to you all, I hope 2008 is kind to you. Thanks for stopping by today.

What a lovely, dainty card. I'm sure your friend will love it, so don't worry about it being a little late. Your card shows femininity and lots of depth too. Lovely. XX
