I have a simple card to share today which I have used for Thank You cards.
Its a very simple and easy card to make but very useful for all those Christmas Thank You notes.
I have a card to share today which I have made as part of a stash busting exercise. I cut lots of card using a set of stencils and then added stitching detail and co-ordinating paper.
For this stencil I folded co-ordinating papers to create a nice corner.
This card is obviously for a 40th birthday so I added some numbers from stock which I coloured with an alcohol marker to co-ordinate.
I hope you like it.
I hope you had a lovely Christmas and I wish you a very Happy New Year!
I have managed to make great progress over the Christmas break to finish making up my patchwork pencil wrap.
I added elastic to fit my selection of drawing materials, so I have them all in one place when I need, so all the loops are of different sizes on purpose.
I added a length of ribbon at the side to tie up the pencil wrap when filled. (Might have used a length of ribbon that was decorating a Christmas present!)
I have a brilliant post today to share. I think they make quite the addition to any Christmas table for a post-Christmas Dinner chocolate which is discretely concealed inside.
I got the idea from a friend who was knitting similar things for charity sales but as I don’t knit I thought I would come up with some crochet alternatives.
Hopefully I will have some more done for next Christmas.
I have left my most favourite till last. This one uses a lovely set of stamps from one of my favourite syppliers – Hobby Art.
I uses alcohol markers to colour the reindeers and robin and watercolours for the background.
I added a few holly leaves and wire work as embelishments.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
