A tribute to my pen and journal

Now, you might think that it's very strange for me to do a tribute to my journal and my pen but in my life it's the little things that matter. About a year ago I decided to purchase a handmade pen that I could always keep as I was concerned about all the plastic being wasted with my disposable pens. I love this pen with which I write in my journal everyday about the things I am grateful for, the things I have learnt through the day and all the events big or small.

This CAS card was designed on photoshop. A scriptive font was used for the sentiment, I wish I could say it was my own writing but sadly it's not. The pen image is a free digi which has been digitally filled in with the flower smiley image. The pen image has been printed twice so that I could cut out the two sections of the pen and paper-piece to the original image.
