Friends look away ... you may receive one of these, one day, but I could not resist show and tell. I almost got to the point of buying a card last week. There were none in the stash and no time to create. Yesterday I spent a 4 blissful hours playing with paper - lovely silk, handmade, textured and printed papers;the result this card and tag series. It was a serene pause in the whirlwind of my mind - all was quiet and the focus was on the paper - no deep thoughts, no other plans, no wishing for other resources... just cutting and arranging beautiful paper.
Back to reality and I have my desk to tidy, at least a little, before I can create anything else on it. I would like to spend another afternoon doing a second series in another colour way, perhaps one which is a little more unisex.

what a gorgeous sea of colour!!!
(pun wasn't intended, but now that I've read the previous comment, I guess the colour made me think of the word "sea")... just so pretty!!!
Oh no, Julie, don't bother going to my blog, I've seen you since I last updated it (so it's been THAT long!)

these are beautiful Julie, I especially love the color choice. I know I often need a card to include in a parcel or just because - what a great idea to create a line of them to have at the ready.

The the color palette you used on these, I just stumbled upon your blog through you comment on Leighanna Light's blog and LOVE all of your work. Of special note - I've never thought of dyeing buttons! Gonna have to try that!
