Pewter Card

Good Afternoon
I want to share a birthday card with you today that I made for my Sister-in-law.  She is a no frilly person, she loves the plain and the no nonsense and for me that is quite a challenge as I love to make cards with a stamped image and lots of bling and embellishments.  But seeing that I love her so much and that she has been so good to us, especially since we have moved down to Cape Town, I just had to make her something that I felt was still something very "me".  Some of you might know that I love to work with Pewter. So I made her this card with a Pewter topper, very plain and no "nonsency" (not sure if you get a word like that).
So here it is, I also used a background paper that is not to busy and the silvery flowers went very well with the Pewter. Very plain and simple.

A close-up of the Pewter topper.

I have made only one New Years resolution (I do not tend to make any, not because I do not keep them, but I usually forget about them), well my New Years resolution that I made is that I will be posting at least once a week.  That will force me to make more "me-time" for crafting and since we have settled in nicely into the house, I do not have any more excuses to not do more crafting (that is except for the fact that I am trying my hand at renovating our place myself - and that is precisely the reason that I have not been blog so frequently, but that is another story for another day).

So seeing as I will be chatting and posting more frequently from next year, I will say goodbye for now and "see" you later.
