* Vera Lane Studio: Joyful New Year

Happy Monday!

For my Vera Lane Studio post this week, I have a New Year Card Calendar:

There always seems to be one or two friends that I forget to send Christmas greetings to, so a New Year card/calendar is my solution this year.
I used Joyful as I think she will bring a smile all through the year. She comes with a selection of birds and two sentiments. I also added a flower from the Sunny digi set.
I made the background with Infusions and Brushos and separated the calendar part from the image with a striped 'line' from the Circles and Stems collage set. The images were coloured with Copics and white highlights were added with a Posca pen. They were fussy cut and glued directly onto the background. I typed (using the Vera Lane Studio Baby Powder font) and printed the first part of the sentiment.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!


Thanks for stopping by today.
