We have been experiencing some beautiful hot and sunny weather here in the UK. The upside is lots of time to laze in the garden or visit a local Garden Centre for a leisurely cream tea. The downside is that there has not been much crafting done.
Update on stitching first last weeks and then this weeks progress:-
On the card front I have done a parchment card. The border was rather fragile on this one and I managed to break a bit off towards the end of cutting it – hence you will notice an extra butterfly on the bottom border lol.
I also made a couple of get well cards but the first got posted before I remembered to take a picture.
On to Christmas cards and this weeks challenge was to make a fairy cards. I made two. Though the first looks like she could be a bit on an imp lol.
As I did not join this group until week 16, I had already missed 15 challenges and along with a few others who joined later we are slowly going to try and do the challenges we missed. Week 1 was Jack Frost or Frosty windows – I chose the latter using a mix of Glossy Accents and glitter to add the frost on this lovely Pollyanna Pickering image.
For Week 2 the theme was Gnomes, Pixies or Elves. Lastly I made this card just because I liked the image and wanted to colour it in.
Tonight I am going to put The Dolls away and out will come Garden Alphabet so I can spend a week working on my SAL piece – unfortunately this time I do not have the delight of watching a little flower come to life as I am going to be working on the border, not my favourite bit which is why I am way behind with it. So there will be no update on the dolls next week.
All for now, so thank you for reading and please leave a comment if you have a minute. I love to hear from you even if you just say Hello.
