A Friend's Challenge

A friend challenged me to produce a birthday card, at very short notice, for his sister who works as a singer on board cruise ships.  I found two images and some appropriate wording within the Greetings Card Factory programme and just added some Glossy Accents before mounting onto blue card.  He was very pleased with the end product!

DYM Summer Festival

Durham Young Musicians held their annual Summer Festival competition on 10th July 2011 and, as usual, I charged myself with the task of producing 10 identical cards to enclose the prizes awarded to some pretty awe-inspiring young pianists who performed on that day.  I made sure they were very quick and easy cards to make by photocopying some music by Brahms and using a Debbi Moore music stamp.  It was then just a case of matting and layering.

Wimbledon 2011

Just got back from two visits to Wimbledon, one to Centre Court and the other to No. 2 Court.  The tennis and weather were great so I had a fantastic time.  I was fortunate to see Roddick, Lopez, Azarenko, both Murray brothers, Pat Cash and many others.
