Hello Sunshine


I want to take this opportunity to say I wish all my followers and visitors a 

Christmas blessed with Peace and Joy

Albeit that it may not be what you would like, without family and/or friends to celebrate with.  
We are so blessed here in New Zealand to be able to associate freely, but carefully!

I have moved house and am gradually sorting and setting up my craft supplies... it's a slow process!

I made this card using a minimum of supplies, but for all that I am pleased with it, as is the recipient. 

It was made for my swap partner in the small N.Z. group I am in, and the challenge this month was to use the layered circle card technique.

What I had in mind and what eventuated were two different things, and after cutting two different sets of circles, I decided to use a double swirl on my card!

The colours, and the fact that we are just coming out of a late, wet spell of spring weather  made me decide to use this greeting (a magazine freebie).  It was stamped  in Memento Tangelo ink, die cut , and sponged before the die was removed.  The edge was run directly over the ink pad, as were the edges of the card itself.

The wee felt flowers were a gift from a friend - love the ladybird/ladybug on each of them. 

I embossed the background with a daisy chain EF - another magazine freebie. 

I finished the inside with a strip of orange washi tape.

A Stitch In Time


Thought I would pop in and show off a stitching project I finished this year...  I have no idea when I started it,  I have to confess

The stitching  technique is Ukrainian White work, finished with a typical withdrawn thread, hemstitched edging, with needle woven elements.  

My apologies for the creases,  but it's been folded ready for packing,  but before I did that,  I wanted to share it. 

I hope you have enjoyed a glimpse of one of the other crafts I do.
