Wonderful Wednesday – six

No knitting this week.  I have actually been stitching the last couple of nights but as its been on Garden Alphabet, so I cannot share yet.  So this week is all cards so sorry if you don’t like cards then the time to leave is now, though I shall be sad to see you go.

The first card this week was a very difficult one.  My daughters, neighbour passed away at the weekend so I needed a sympathy card, never the easiest thing at the best of times.  In this case though he was only in his early 30s and leaves a girl of about 9 and a boy of about 6 as well as a young wife.  With the card being for children too I did not want black or anything depressing.  This is what I came up with and I wonder what you think?DSCF6046 I think my camera lens must need cleaning because the spots and marks on the picture are not on the card.

Although I have been thoroughly enjoying stamping cards, when I moved a box the other day and realised I have three boxes full of toppers and made up decoupage to use I realised I could not afford to waste them either so here are some small fun (mainly 5 x 5 in or 6 x 6) cards that I have made this week using the toppers.

These three are C5 size

and lastly three Christmas cards.  This weeks challenge at the Christmas card group is “Winter In The Forest”, so here are the cards I did.

Hope you enjoyed looking, please leave a comment if you have a minute, I love hearing what you think and what you are up to.



About stitchingranny

I am one of those people who need to have busy hands so whether its stitching or papercrafting, I am always doing something. I also love being in the garden, though hubby does most of the work there these days.
