A little bit of cross stitch on my desk today - a Gorjuss girl to brighten up my daughter's student house - the colours co-ordinate well with the living room - so it will brighten up a bare wall! I bought this kit at the craft fair in the NEC and I thought I'd better stitch it before going back to the one in March and buying lots more! I have just discovered that you can get tickets for free with Tesco's vouchers and this year the ticket also allows you to visit the cake fair as well as crafts, stitching and knitting!! Flights booked early and all set to go - though my daughter is unable to come with me this time so I will have to restrict my purchases to one cabin bag full instead of two :-(

The clutter to the left consists of the stamps etc I was using to make a little calendar card to send to the ladies who attend my needlecraft class, to let them know it starts back again tomorrow night.

Get Well patchwork card

I had to make a couple of quick Get Well cards today so I used LOTV paper and an image from the 'Beautiful Blooms' art pad. I can enter it into the Stampavie Challenge - 'Patchwork,' Creative Inspirations - 'Floral,' Sketchy Challenges - theme 'Anything goes' and Allsorts - 'Girly/Sparkly' - I used the Wink of Stella clear pen to highlight the image with a sparkly shimmery touch, but it hasn't shown up at all in the photo :-(
All the punches used (flower, banner, plain and scalloped circles) are from SU.


New baby

Just a couple of new baby cards I made recently using paper and images from LOTV. I was sorry to hear the art pads have been discontinued as they were just so useful for making quick and easy cards.
