Birthday card

Been a week since I posted, still healing from surgery (and it's been going well) and all sorts of other things have been happening. We've had to replace a dishwasher....twice... and that was a headache, then one of the heating units went on the fritz, so in a week where the evening temps have been 20 - 23 degrees, the past couple of days the downstairs heater doesn't work without icing up. That's being replaced today - yay!

In the meantime, I've sent off many postcards on Postcrossing: to the US, Russia, Japan, China, Germany, Finland, Estonia, UK, and Netherlands. some of the countries more than once during the past week. This time of year I usually send postcards of old fashioned Christmas prints, so it's been fun.

The art work I've done I couldn't post till today - it was a birthday card for my dear sister whose birthday was yesterday. I didn't want her to see her card before she got it!

Her favorite color is purple, so this has various shades of purple on it, with the 3D double butterfly with sequins, torn paper with purple distress ink on top of torn handmade paper also distressed. I punched the circle, added an embossed sentiment, metal embellishment, altered bird and used purple Sakura pen for accent. I heard from her yesterday, she really liked it!

Looking forward to having heat all through the house!


  1. Hope you're doing better today than yesterday.
    Your card is lovely...I'm sure your sister will cherish it :)

  2. Yay for the new heating unit! I dearly love the card and all the thought you put into it. I am getting quite the collection and brag about you all the time. I am blessed to have you as my sister! Love you bunches!!!
