25th Club!

A year ago I mentioned to Di the idea of making a couple of Christmas cards on the 25th of each month, so hopefully I wouldn't feel as rushed when December approached. Di liked my idea & so it was made into a 'Sticky!' on the Bubbly Funk forum. Lots of Bubblies join in too!

A year on & here were are again!... & this time Joanne has come up with the fabulous idea of having a theme each month. Joanne has chosen January's theme which is .... turquoise or blue & silver, swirls with sparkly or shiny.

Hope I've got this right! Thank You for the inspiration Joanne.xx

Here are my 2 cards for January.

I have used some gorgeous scraps of left over papers & coloured a Magnolia image with Copic pens. Blooms, swirl & gems from my craft box.

I have also used one of Kathy's gorgeous sketches.

More of the same papers & another Tilda image.

Close-up of glittery swirl. Not much good light around here today unfortunately, to get a decent shot. It's very dark & dismal.

Hope the weather is brighter where you are... Thanks for looking. Have a lovely week. Gez.xx
