Deer at christmas Card Club

 Hello there! Well its almost the final outing for the Christmas Card club this year - and the theme this time is deer. I have used Hobbyart stamps to make 2 cards.

I did enjoy making these - although they are far from perfect! 

My mum also made 2 cards - 

This first one used a honeydoo wreath stamp and clarity deer stamps.

This second one is made using a clarity stencil and TH deer dies! I do like those deer dies!

Hope you have a great day!

A little slice of Christmas!

 Hello there! Well I have been making some Christmas log slice decorations in the run up to Christmas - I have really enjoyed doing this and wanted to share some here.

They are nearly all made using hobbyart stamps - there is one pink ink designs in there too though!
They have gone down pretty well in my sales!

Big hugs

Work hard, dream big...

 Hello there! Just a quick reminder there is still a challenge going on this month for you to make tags - at countrview challenges... here's my second tag.

This is another katzekraft image and I made the background using distress ink and brushos. 
I do hope you can join the challenge - there are 11 days left to enter!

Christmas Cracker at Christmas card club

 Hello there! How are you? I seem to be very busy with craft fairs but very glad to have finished teaching. I won't ever make a living at these fairs but its fun trying! I did one yesterday which didn't go so well - but I guess you have to take the rough with the smooth - and it takes time to learn what sells and where the best fairs are. At least it didn't cost me anything!

Today its another outing for the Christmas Card Club. The theme this fortnight is Christmas Crackers - I failed this time with the theme and have gone instead for anything goes.

my olde faithful camels - still love this image!

My mum was very good and found a discontinued sweet poppy stencil which she used to make 2 cards,

Well done mum - I think they look great!

Hope you have a good day - I am at work in the village shop all day! I will aim to return any comments tomorrow!

Big hugs

only tags at countryview challenges

 Hello there - November already? It really doesn't seem possible but here we are! Time for a new challenge at Countryview Challenges where the theme is 'tags only'.

Here's my tag ...

I made a tag on kraft using an image from katzelkraft. I coloured using clean colour pens - went around the edge in distress oxide then added some brusho to the base. Finally I added my ribbon and words.

I do hope you can join this challenge!
Big hugs
