Natural World

I was happy to have been chosen in the top three for October and delighted to be asked to do another guest designer spot.For this challenge, Natural World, I chose to make an 8x8 hanging, the twist was to add a flower.There are more details on the crafts4u2 do challenge site.

Still have a bit of shopping to do but cards all finished ,written and posted, tree and decorations up and still over a week to go, now it's what have I forgotten ?

Frosty village

I've tried to keep things simple this year as I'm inclined to get carried away and pile on more and more, as I was also trying to keep my cards flat to avoid extra postage I was quite conscious of what I was adding, I do quite like the simplicity of this card, the joycraft papers are so pretty and make lovely backgrounds. The stamp is Hobby Art, bought last year and didn't get used and a spellbinders die.

Back again

Hopefully this is the last batch of Christmas cards for this year ! I've been struggling to get them done what with total lack of inspiration and also the rheumatoid arthritis has been playing up and my hands have been quite painful again, enough of that though, today I've written most of my cards ,just the hand delivery ones to do, I've made a conscious effort this year to keep the cards flat enough so I don't have to pay extra postage!   This card is made mostly with Craftwork Cards papers which I have used a lot of this year, love them, stamp is Stampendous and poinsettia is spellbinders
