It hasn't been forever ...

... since my last post. Surprised, huh? I know I am! Although, I suppose a week and a bit in blogland can seem like a long time.

I made the following card for a friend of mine in Canada. And it really has been like FOREVER since I sent her something to remind her that she is in my thoughts and heart. I was thinking how easy it has been for so much time to pass by in the whirligig of every day and, in that time, not reach out to those that I care about - especially those who may be far away. Definitely time for redress...

I love how this looks like you tore it from the pages of an illustrated book of children's fairytales. At least, that is what it reminds me of!

Painstaking and precise work with your marker and SAMJ - looks fantastic.

You going to Convention this year?

Lin Mei said...

Awww thanks so much Louise! I love that analogy *smile* I was rather pleased with the look of VersaMark on Natural Ivory - it looks like jacquard ...

Unfortunately, I am not attending Convention this year - I'm so going to miss out on seeing you this time. Maybe I could lurk at the venue in hopes of having a coffee with you?

You bet! I'll be sending tweets from my iPhone so if you follow me there you'll catch all the news (and track me down for a coffee?) Have a fab week!

If you're lurking, I'm always up for a coffee! Think I've got 50% caffeine travelling around in these veins. Gorgeous gorgeous card Lin Mei. Love the lettering between those border thingy stamps.
