You never know when a font is going to come in handy

I have been listening to some of my favourite 70's funk music and that's how this card was born.The design on this card  has been put together with "my 70's dingbat" font. I downloaded this free font a few years ago and use it often in my creations. The main image is printed in about 350 point and I created the background stripes in open office. At  first I only cut out a pair of pants for the lady and then my husband said that the image looked topless so I decided to cut her out a top as well, I don't think he was complaining LOL.  I think this is a perfect girl power card and I am sure that I will be able to give it to one of my girl friends at some stage.

Today was a mixture of good and bad, I had my six monthly review at work that went really well. On a sad note I am really upset that one of the pop up shops I am selling my creations in has to close as the landlord has found a full paying tennant for the shop. It was such a lovely shop selling beautiful handmade creations, it will surely be missed, I hope they open again somewhere else at some stage but as yet there are no plans for this to happen.Also a very good friend of our family passed away in Karachi, Aunty Ruth had always been a huge inspiration in my life and I was hoping to see her once more but that was not to be, at least I was able to meet her a few years ago and have some very happy memories that will last a lifetime. I hope this is not all too depressing, just sharing my thoughts and I intend to be much more cheerier in my posts from now on.
