Well… it didn't take long to mess up my new work space! I'm not even going to show you all the stuff on the floor!
I have been busy preparing canvas backgrounds for more twiggy trees (on the right) The project bag in the middle is full of stuff for club tomorrow night to make some christmas cards. The black sissors I have smuggled upstairs from the kitchen as my craft sissors are in dire need of a good clean and the chipboard G that you see is a present for my God daughter Gracie which I have to get finished.
I am in the process of making some cards using this lovely Christmas stamp from Chloe designs.
I loved the designs and inspirations on her stand at the NEC and so tried to 'bling' my flowers up a bit. They have been stamped on scrapbook paper in Versamark, embossed in gold, sparkle medium applied with a brush and then red stickles applied too. A little gem was added to the middle along with a circle of the background paper. I'm not sure if a sentiment is needed, I haven't decided. I like the understated look, I'm not a naturally blingy person! But the flowers really sparkle.
I have also finished another initial for a colleague at work….
The first one for a little boy that I've done, so I was a bit stuck for ideas until I saw these cute little toppers in Hobbycraft and the rest was easy!
Well…I'm off to finish all my stuff for our Christmas fayre which is next Tuesday. I will be glad when it's over now! I'm nearly fed up with Christmas and I haven't even started on present buying yet!
