Greeting cards & giveaways

Yes, I actually put my ass in gear and made some greeting cards. Are you proud of me? :) I used stencils designed by Jessica Sporn, spray paints and gold/silver markers.
The yellow spray paint didn't take well but that's ok. It makes them look more expressionistic. :) Anyway. I really love this stencil border however it was -13°C outside when I was spray painting in my slippers and freezing my ass off so it shows my lack of enthusiasm to do it properly. :))
 

Next three prompts are from Reverb#12: 
10. What was the greatest risk you took in 2012? What was the outcome?
I feel like I'm repeating myself so I'll make it short. My on-line workshop.

11. What was music to your ears in 2012, literally or metaphorically?
I enjoyed watching the audition for the X Factor, The Voice and such. I love it when someone starts singing and you don't expect that kind of voice to come out of them. :) Among my favorites were Karise Eden, Christopher Maloney, Jahmene Douglas and Carly Rose Sonenclar.





12. What made you dance in 2012? What made you weep?
We had four deaths in our family past several months. We lost 2 great aunts, one aunt and my cousin's husband. It was a shock because we had no deaths like for years and now 4 all of a sudden. There's certainly a lot of deaths this year in general. Haven't done much dancing this year. But I do have sporadic laughter attacks with my hubby for no reason. Does that count? :))
