I hope your day is going well.
My sister has been with Mum today so I have been having a card making fix! I have been taking crafty things with me to sit and do whilst with Mum .. .. but it isn't the same as having all your supplies around you to dip in and out of .. .. so today I feel like a kid in a toy shop.
I have quite a few weddings falling around Christmas this year that are going to need quite a lot of work doing for them .. .. so I am trying to make a real effort to get lots of Christmas cards under my belt nice and early.
So apologies to folk who only like to see Christmas makes later in the year .. .. but needs must!
Today I am playing along with the Rudolph Days Challenge which runs from the 25th to the end of each month.
To take part you only need to enter one project .. .. but the sharp eyed among you will notice I have made two using different sentiments. These are based on a teeny tiny card I made last Christmas using this image. It was very popular with my customers and I made quite a few in the end .. .. so this year I am "up-sizing" and making a larger version.
Image and Sentiment: Digistamp Boutique "Partridge in Pear Tree"
Backing Papers: Docrafts Forever Friends "Kraft Notes"
Distress Ink Pad: Antique Linen
Ribbon, Gem and Pearls from my Crafty Stash Box
My Trusty Sewing Machine
and that is it. Another two Christmas cards for my box! Yay!!
Many thanks for all the good luck wishes regarding my Mum and the wheelchair sketch I shared with you on my previous post.
I was quite surprised how well she accepted me introducing a wheelchair into her home, it can't have been an easy thing for her. I was expecting her to say "you can take that back from wherever you got it" .. .. but she didn't. Yay!! Sadly though it was raining so we never got to have our first outing.
My sister is with her today and my brother tomorrow, and both are as keen as me to take her out into the fresh air, so hopefully it won't be long before she experiences the great outdoors once again and her world is once again more than the four walls she has been content with for far too long.
Enjoy your weekend everyone. I hope it includes a little bit of crafty time for you.
