Farewell 2020


Good evening on this final day of what has been a year like no other.
In addition to this horrendous pandemic that has devastated so many
millions of lives, here in Australia we began 2020 with much of our
country experiencing apocalyptic bushfires while still reeling from
the worst drought in recorded history. Floods and hurricane-like
storms then followed at times throughout the year. It's little
wonder that we all can't wait to see the end of 2020.

This is my last Christmas card for this season. The paper is many years old,
but I still love it. I can't remember the maker.

My card features a large greeting by Stampers
Anonymous, designed by Tim Holtz, Doodle Greetings 1.
I tore and sponged around the edges to create a more
vintage look, then coloured the little doodles with Promarkers.

A closer look at the poinsettia, cut with an old Spellbinders die,
its centre of micro beads, the mixed foliage, 
and the cute candy cane.

Challenges I would like to enter:-
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 'Pick a previous 2020 challenge' (November colour challenge 'Red & Green')

I would like to wish you all a very happy and safer New Year, when hopefully we have banished this hideous virus for all time, and we can once again have contact with our loved ones.

Until next time, thank you for visiting my blog,
Hugs (socially distanced of course),
Jennifer.  xx
