I'm trying to get more cards made this year. Last year, I pretty much only sent homemade cards to those who might come hunt me down and kill me if they didn't get them (yes, grandma, I'm talking about you. Well, you and a few others!). This year, I'd like to send them to quite a few more people. I guess maybe it's lucky that I don't know a lot of people who might want to kill me?!?
Anyway, this is one of the images that I colored at the crop over a week ago. This is another Sweet Pea stamps image, this time illustrated by Ching Chou Kiuk. Her stamps are actually the first ones that I bought from Sweet Pea Stamps a few years ago. I love her images. They are so full of mysticism and ethereal beauty. I love to color them, even though it seems to take me forever to color all of the tiny details.
