...and fast-forward - happy birthday lee!

my little sister lee turns 30 today (hard to believe...) and i made this card to go with the apple & bee bathroom bag that was part of her present. i love the designs apple & bee come up with - such gorgeous patterns. i also love that they're an austalian company, carbon-neutral and use fabrics like organic cotton, hemp and bamboo silk blends. (quite partial to the reusable drawstring unbleached cotton cloth bags they're sold in at the moment too.)

for her card i wanted to make lee something that tied in with that organic look, so i used a very handmade looking base card bought from a little shop called namaste, and set about making a vague copy of the pattern from the bag then gluing mohair to the pattern. looks so simple but took hours and hours. a true act of love.


  1. That's gorgeous Kae, I can't wait to see what 2010 year of the card has in store!

  2. thanks sare. i never want to make another card again at this stage!! having said that just been and picked up a whole lot of photos for another project...


always love to hear what you have to say...
