It was my birthday yesterday and I would really love it if you would all enjoy a glass with me to celebrate.
I have put a few pics below of the cards I've been making this week.
I finished off and mounted the little Christmas trees you saw last week to make one batch of cards and then set to to design a few more....
I had an idea in mind so I made a pattern first....can you see what it is yet?
I cut the bodies out from some brown woollen fabric I'd cut off when shortening the hem on a skirt...waste not want not eh? Then I cut out bright red hearts and bond a webbed them to the fronts.
I mounted these on some ivory linen fabric thet I picked up from the card boot sale a few weeks back....another bargain
A bit of machine embroidery later.....
...A yellow beak, white eyelets and black seeding beads for eyes and hey presto...
...that's another 10 cards made :-)
I now struggle to hand write my Christmas cards because of my arthritis but I do my best to hand make them all to make up for it. :-)
I hope you've enjoyed a glass of wine with me today and enjoyed seeing my first 2 batches of Christmas cards. The other thing I thought you'd like to see was a little of the magic of nature this week.
Jack frost had been out dusting the cobwebs that the friendly spiders had spun.....magical or what?
Have a great week. Leave me a little message and I will do my best to call by to say hello.....hic hic
