Well, we got back from our trip to Achill Island on Monday and I had planned to bore you all with a travelogue and lots of photos but, in our absence, our internet router has given up the ghost and so I haven't been able to get online at home. We're waiting for a new one which should come in the next few days hopefully. I can still use my smart tab to view other blogs thankfully so I'll be able to pay a visit to the many talented creatives joining in Paint Party Friday.
This is another Christmas Card design that I did before we went away. I've got the Christmas fair on 1 December so I'll be spending the weekend printing off cards and making sure I've got enough stock (being ever optimistic that I'll actually sell stuff this time!)
|Joy to the world - Pointy Christmas Card|
I started off with the Robin and wasn't sure about the background initially. I had thought I'd do a more traditional snowy village but then, perhaps because I'd been thinking of this time last year in New York , I got the urge to draw a more modern skyline instead. I wanted to still use words from a Christmas Carol and 'Joy to the world' seemed appropriate!
For anyone who might like to read about Achill (in case you ever fancy a visit there) I'll be blogging about our trip just as soon as I get online at home again and also about a wonderful arty anniversary present that the very lovely S surprised me with.
Don't forget to pop over to Paint Party Friday to see all the great works in progress in blogland this week.
