January Cheer

There is a big postcard swap going on at BQLPC at the moment. 15 of us have signed up altogether. I think this is the largest postcard swap I've taken part in. The theme is January Cheer, there is no particular lead for the theme everyone will be interpreting it however they wish.


I decided to go with an old favourite of mine, cats! My cats always manage to make me smile with their antics, so hopefully these kitties will bring some January Cheer!
I made half on a vibrant background and half on pastel, the pastel colours don't show too well in the scan I've taken. Here they are looking more washed out than they really are. The swap isn't due until the end of the month but I'm so glad that I have managed to get them all made in plenty of time. I have three more postcard swap commitments for January and I'm confident that I will be sticking to my resolution not to fall behind! I'm also making myself slow down when it comes to signing up for postcard swaps too. This month is pretty busy but so far I have only a few commitments for the next couple of months so who knows maybe I will actually get way ahead of myself!

I had to laugh at how small the blog world is - I came to your blog through the TAST challenge list on Sharon b's blog (I'm not doing the TAST challenge, but I like to look at some of the results) - didn't realise until I got halfway down the page that I know you from elsewhere (BQLPC) - it was the cats that gave it away!
