Simple Floral Thank you


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.




Get Well Soon


I have another card today using one of my stock stencil and stitched cut-outs.

This one is for my friend who was poorly so I added a punch art flower.

Thanks for visiting.


40th Birthday Card


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.






Patchwork Project – English Paper Piecing – Pencil Wrap cont’d – Add elastic for pencils


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!)

Looking good.


Novelty Crochet Christmas Chocolate Holders


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.



Christmas Reindeer Trio

Happy 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.
