Today started with wind chills around 1 degree…..brrrr! and a trip to the eye doctor for my final after cataract surgery check-up. I can see at 20/15 so for someone who was very near sighted, that’s really good.
Another goal this year is to participate in Jenn Shurkus’s Get Cracking On Christmas monthly events. It’s a great way to tackle a couple of Christmas cards each month, play with some Christmas supplies I haven’t gotten to yet & be ahead of the game for Christmas cards for 2022.
Tonight I was going to finish up a couple of unfinished cards from the Creative Journey Art Retreat but Jenn was playing with alcohol inks, something I haven’t done in quite awhile so I dug them out to create with.
It’s always fun to try & capture photos in the evening of shiny objects but I think I got enough of the silver foiling over the alcohol ink to see how it gives a beautiful marble vein effect. The snowflakes are the Stitched Snowflakes dies from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is from the infamous Bits & Pieces box. I have 2 more cards to finish from tonight’s playtime.
So is it too early in the year to make Christmas cards or can you roll with anytime of the year?
