Cards!

I don't make many cards any more, mainly because I find them a bit boring and would rather be experimenting and getting messy, but I wanted some special thank you cards for my son's teachers because they put up with a lot and do a fantastic job, so these are what I came up with. I wanted something quick but nice, so I decided to do some miniature encaustic art pictures and make those the main focal point, keeping the rest of the card simple. I just added some patterned papers, Prima flowers and a few other bits and pieces (and before anybody says anything, yes those are peel-offs. I was short of time. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)
Oh yes, I almost forgot to say, the pictures are rubbish. This is because I finished these very late last night, and I have yet to master the art of taking digital photos in unnatuaral light!
