So today we both began making our cards (also a nice way to spend those sometimes odd days in between). In a moment of *madness* Barry went for white on white embossing, which has nothing to do with timber, rust or copper; whilst I stuck with a simple square and coloured design.
Barry embossed his on our printing press using a cut out plastic milk container template (and was apparently very pleased with the ragged edge look which he retained throughout).
I used a similar template to draw 4 squares, wrote the numbers and the Happy and then used watercolour pencils and water to colour in the boxes. I don't think I repeated any colour combination, and now we just have to sit and write to folk.
So as 2009 disappears and 2010 appears, my wish is for peace and happiness; health and harmony; fun times with families and friends; and many magic moments of creativity.
