Good morning everyone. Hope all is good with you and yours.
It's back to work for me this morning, possibly for a rest, lol, as I haven't had much down time in my few days off. Didn't get through my chores list as others got added to it along the way (ain't it always the way?).
Thank you for your fab comments and good wishes for our anniversary and the card. Hello to Marie and Marci. Nice to have you with us ladies.
Well, yes it was an interesting trip with John but I can assure you, the guy doesn't need a manager (especially me hahaha!) as he is very astute. My role is more that of groupie/roadie so I will make sure that his diva requests for his dressing room are adhered to. . . . . .fridge full of Pepsi Max and cheese, teal cushions, Robson and Jerome on the stereo and two live swans. . . . . . . you know the kinda thing lol!!! Seriously, I was very chuffed to go along for some moral support.
Now, today's card is one that Nesta asked me to make for her brother in law's birthday. You may remember the elephant card I made him last year (if not it's here) I knew I was never going to top that one for him (apparently, it's still on their mantelpiece to this day) so, as he likes elephants, I decided to go with a contemporary looking Lord Ganesh for him (Lord Ganesh is the elephant god and is auspicious to put on a card for Hindus). I also managed to incorporate the Om symbol as his headgear as that too is a good thing to include.
It's a very simple card, except for having to hand draw the design (and there were a few different sketches I can tell you lol!!!). Its just layers in black and cream, edged (carefully-ish) with my lovely Krylon Gold Leaf pen
Cream card base A5 in size
Black PMD card
Krylon Gold Leaf pen
Pearls coloured with the Krylon pen
I enjoyed doing something different but it's a bit nervy when you're doing it for someone else. I'm assured it was very well received and is likely to be keeping last years company on the mantel for a while yet. I'm also loving black and gold as a combo at the minute too.
Well, here's hoping for a quiet Monday at work. With all the Christmas stock making an appearance (yes, I know we are still only in September lol!!!) its going to be busy with popping it out but its nice to see what I'm going to buy lol!!!.
Have a great week folks, whatever you have planned, and. . . . . . . . . be good!!!
