This is a birthday card made for my friend Pat. Before I retired I had my own business and Pat was my PA for years. We know each other inside out. Pat and Jim have moved down to Hampton in Middlesex to be near their children and grandchildren and we both agree we miss each other, but we can pick up the phone and continue a conversation we may have had a couple of weeks ago. She's very organised, I'm not, she had done all her Christmas shopping before the end of November and I always get my birthday card and present well in advance because she would be very upset if they weren't here on time. However, as the wording says 'a friend is someone who knows you as you are', so she'll not be surprised when she doesn't receive a pressy in the post on Tuesday. They've not had as much snow 'down south' and we have 'up north', so she will understand that I have been unable to get to the shops. As I said, I'm not as organised as she is otherwise I would have already bought it and given it to her on New Years Eve.
The background is Glimmer Mists, then stamped over with acrylic paint, using sequin waste and T!ms's stamps. The main images are Paper Bag Studio and Innovative Stamp Creation. Finished off with three pearls and a piece of sari silk.
