Santa Again

I had a lovely day today, my birthday. John took me to a beautiful
restaurant only about 5 minutes drive away. It is on the waterfront,
literally. It is built over the water, and has its own mini-marina, so
boat owners actually moor right alongside, then just walk a few
metres into the restaurant. 

Our darling kitty also celebrated his birthday today - 15 years old, 
and still very active. We don't know his actual birthdate, but it was
around Christmas, so I decided to let him share my birthday.

This is another of the cards I made using purchased Christmas cards which I 
then cut down (see previous post). The originals were very large cards, so 
I just used a portion of the image.

I sponged the poinsettias with Aged Mahogany distress ink, and the
foliage, twigs, and the DSP with Gathered Twigs distress ink. The
stamens are coloured with alcohol ink. I created the veins in the 
leaves with a small ball tool.

The greeting was on the inside of the original card.

Paper - First Edition Christmas Village (I think)
Dies - Memory Box Woodland Branch; Marianne Poinsettia; X-Cut Leaf Strip; Tim Holtz Holiday Greens

There is less than half an hour of my birthday left, so I will bid you all good night.

Until next time, thank you for visiting,
Jennifer.  xx
