I can't share with you what I've been working on this week, because it's a gift for someone very special and since they follow my blog, they might see!
So, instead I'll show you a Christmas card that I designed and printed, to send out to my family and friends...
And the story of the little bear is printed on the inside...
By Sandra Busby, 2012
...The little golden bear stared back at me with an innocent yet guilty look on his face.
..."Yes, you, little bear."
"Twas not me" he replied with a somewhat glazed expression.
"Why of course it was you!" I chuckled.
The little bear thought for a moment. "But how do you know it was me?"
"I know it was you, you dear little fellow, for only a bear would add ice to an apple brandy!"
I sniffed the apply aroma that filled the air."
Is it rather lovely?" I asked.
"Oh yes, he replied. It is rather lovely indeed!"
For so long, all of my arty friends have been sending me cards that they have had printed themselves and I have always thought that it is such a lovely and thoughtful thing to do. It just seems like that extra little bit of effort has been made and I always really appreciate that.
I, on the other hand am disorganised by nature and so have never actually got around to it myself - until finally, this year when I decided to get my act together and for once not send out my cards on December the 23rd, lol!
This year I wanted to send a special card out to everyone and it felt so much nicer than scrawling inside cards left over from the year before!
Not only that, but it's my way of showing my appreciation to those people who have offered me continuous encouragement throughout the year - How lovely you all are :0)
Anyway - I don't have the addresses of all of my bloggy friends (unless you would like to give it to me), so this one is for you :0)
