I've been making up for lost time and getting a few loose ends tied up but I've also found some time to play around with Christmas decorations... well it is November tomorrow!
This star is made from mount board, coloured with Distress Stains,stamped with PaperArtsy Christmas script, clear embossed and before the embossing set I threw on some mini star sequins and accent beads. A tassel of beads finishes it off, all so easy and so simple.
Halloween and the Trick or Treaters will be round later and after last year's greedy grabbing from my basket, when one little ghoul tried to grab the lot for himself and his brothers soon tried to join in, I decided to make individual goodie bags to give out. Morrisons Supermarket provided a bag full of crawlies and skeletons for just £1.
Vicky Stampers decided, well our lovely Neet thought up the idea, to have a swap and as it's Breast Cancer Awareness month the theme was "Pink" and here's the fun card I received from Jeannie. You may just note the Breast Cancer ribbon symbol on the cup cake maid's apron! Thanks so much Jeannie.
I forgot to photograph mine after it had waited in the hall for a week to be posted but I made a card with pink cowboy boots with the quote "Give Cancer the Boot"
I've just finished and posted this red cardigan off to a special little new schoolgirl in Brighton... hope it fits and hope she likes it. She asked for a replacement in red of her favourite blue one that she had grown out of so now that one has been passed on to her little sister. The needles are sparking again as there is so much to make to keep the three of them cosy for Winter. Funny how I've been "off" knitting for months and now I pick it up every spare moment. It can be a frustration or relaxation!
Still waiting for Carola Bartz to get in touch and also Cardarian. Please email me ladies so I can get parcels off to each of you soon.
