Happy New Year

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a nice New Years Eve, we had friends over for a BBQ which was really nice.

I thought I would start the year with a quick post with some of my development Christmas cards, the ones I made before I came up with my final design.

This first one isn't my favourite - I think it would have looked better with a larger sentiment.

I really liked the effect of the All About Christmas wheel (R) on this one, something I will keep in mind for next year.

This last one is my favourite but just wasn't so practical for mass producing - so lost out on those grounds.

I won't go into construction details, it should be fairly easy to see how they came together. All details are in the recipes below.

Thanks for visiting....and looking forward to hearing from you in 2010:)
