Previous years cards may be seen here. This years will join them later.

Working on cards for this year and thinking about all the cards I have made over the years and then I thought I’d create a page with previous holiday cards!
Here’s last years card and it links to the others.

Deck the Halls!

Henry Moore’s Sketchbook

July 20th, 2012

Working on sketching sheep for a project and remembered a book I haven’t looked at in years. “Henry Moore’s Sheep Sketchbook”. Dug out my copy and spent a rainy afternoon with an old friend and a cup of tea.

My copy with it’s dogeared cover.

Looked it up on line to see if it is still in print and discovered that it was reissued as a paperback. (Also found a video about the reissue.)

Cape May Wetlands Card

May 21st, 2011

Several years ago, on my birthday, we went to Cape May, NJ and visited a wetlands park there. Beautiful, warm spring day, Sunny with a breeze that russeled the tall grasses. We walked through the grasses and emerged to a swan floating in a small body of water.
This small accordion card was a reaction to a perfect day.

The center page is cut out with the two sided swan attached to a thread. The decorative corners of the pages are a nod to Victorian Cape May.
