love love and more love

Case Study inspiration photo

All you need is love, Paper Issues

I don't know if I am happy with this card but I had fun making it and so decided to post it. It's not intentional that all the cards I am making of late is to do with love. I guess I am getting ready for Valentine's day, my friends usually ask me for cards for Feb the 14th and this year they will have plenty to choose from. 

For this card the main image including the sentiment, little birds and heart were computer generated. I drew on the lines with a ruler and the hugs and kisses is a rub-on. I kept the card simple as in the original inspiration photo, I only added a piece of twine to finish the card off, originally I had one more piece of twine but thought it made the card look too crowded.

Yesterday was Australia day and I have to say that it was the best Australia day I have ever had. The pop up shop that I volunteer in was nominated for a community award and as part of that we had to attend an Australia day ceremony, we didn't win but it was great being nominated, gave us all a sense of pride and achievement and I think this was especially important for my friends who started up the shop. We also got to meet a lot of the deserving winners who were of many ethnic backgrounds, it made me feel that everyone belongs in Australia and can make a go of it here. In the evening we got to watch a very enjoyable Australia day concert and finished off the evening with fireworks which were absolutely beautiful.
