One of my girlfriends had her 50th birthday recently. I made this card for her. The base is a CD painted with Lumieres. I stamped it with Stazon, I then gave it a coat of Jo Sonja's Opal Dust. The figure is a mould from Krafty Lady I used Opals. The Opals often come out a bit dull so I gave it a blast with the heat gun and it has left it with a wet finish...cool.

Some friends and I were talking about doing an ABC set of ATCs. I find it very hard to create anything without some kind of influence. As this discussion came about just before Mother's Day I decided to do mine with Mum in mind. I have only done 4 so far so this will be an ongoing thing for quite a while.
B - Blue - one of Mum's preferred colours
C - Cat - a photo of Mum in her Girl Guides outfit with her cat sitting on the fence
D - Dream - I am sure she had many.
F - Fred & Floss - yes, Dad & Mum - this photo was taken in July 1993
I have ideas for some other letters but need to get on with some swaps first.
