WATER



Last but not least - my card from  Gina.   Seems a long time since I sent her my first card.  The flower and watering can are fabric and embroidery and the newspaper cuttings relate to water rationing and drought.  There's a thoughtful contrast between the main images and the background.  It makes a great addition to my collection,  Gina, thank you.
This has been a great project - meeting blogging friends (some in person and I hope I might meet some others in time) making me dust off my rusty artistic skills - and recognising my own limitations.  Sad that this is the last, but just as well for me as I've just broken my arm(hence rather poor photo!), so making will be difficult for the next few weeks.  Meanwhile, I'll still be reading all your blogs and keeping up with you.

So sorry to read about your 'break'. Small comfort that you haven't got to think about a postcard along with all the other inconveniences. Lovely card with the Gina touch. It's been a great project.

Another Gina special. Sorry to hear about the fall Jane. At least you don't have to try and make any more cards one handed.

Very much a "Gina" card. Lovely as always. Sorry to hear about the broken arm.

Ouch! I hope your arm mends quickly Jane. Super card from Gina, I really like the background and the stitched watering can and flower. Water is like gold dust in some countries, isn't it?

Another beauty! What a dreadful shame about your arm - I hope your recovery is quick and straightforward.

A delightful card. I remember dad diverting the bath water to water the garden in the 70s !
