That Lady Again...........

Hi, yep its that lady again (Acid Drops & Whatnots) hope you don't mind, she is so fab.



The background is Alcohol ink swooshing and inserted into the back of the card, I love how this simple design came together; its going to an old friend of mine whose birthday it is this month.

My Mum's birthday is on Saturday, she will be 88............and has had many setbacks in the last two weeks (mainly falling over) which has left her very frail, so have been busy birthday shopping and making her a card in white and silver (she loves clean and simple cards) which will show later.

My niece had her beautiful baby last week and named him Carter....


love this photo

Martin has gone to Waitrose to do some shopping and also get his hair cut at the local barbers.  I've done the washing, flicked a duster and worked a bit more in my Art Journal.   Hmm nearly time for lunch and a glass of wine.

Have a great day and thank you for popping in, Hugs Annette x

Wow, you have had a lot of life changes this week, Netty not all as big a deal as a new baby in your extended family. I hope your mum strengthens during the week and that her birthday is a special time for her. I love the card you made with the alcohol swooshing. I love to make backgrounds and I love to see backgrounds other artists make, Beautiful work.

I shall start with your card. The minute I saw it I started singing - Whose that lady - sexy lady -- I think the music is on an ad here. The background colors are gorgeous. Your friend will love this card. My Mother will be 89 this year and has had several falls. So I know of the place you find yourself. Your Mother will love your card - it sounds beautiful.
I need you to teach me the flicking technique for dusting.
I would love to join you for lunch! Yum, a nice glass of wine!
