2010 is just around the corner

Hi, there! How are you today?
 After 15 minutes, 2010 will be started in Japan. Thank you so very much everyone for all your encourage comments you left me here in this year.
We all now are faced with various crisis - the global recession, environment problems, the Pandemic Influenza and so on.
 But PLEASE have a new year! I hope 2010 will be a wonderful year for you and your family!

Love, Tomo

A bit for sharing.
This is the one of the cards which I made for the children at the homes for orphans. Made five similar cards. Because, I needed them to be with the Christmas cakes and gifts.

And this is a close up.
Used Tsukineko's embossing powder, 'Gold Pearl' for the tree on the light blue paper. This powder can get a little transparent effect. Can't you see the tree like pale yellow green color? Sorry, I could't take this pic well. :(
I changed the sentiment from 'Season's Greetings' - it's general in Western countries - to 'Winter Greetings'. Because the Japanese children almost don't recognize this 'Season' means 'which season in four seasons', even if they study English. Probably it comes from the difference of culture, I guess.

Stamp used:
HA Clear Design Let It Snow / CL233
Penny Black and Stampendous stamps

Bazzill Basics CS, Basic Grey PP,
Tsukineko embossing powder, Tim Holtz Grunge sheet, ribbon, button

Thanks for stopping by! :)
