Fairy Exchange-Received

I received this from my exchange partner, and I was really pleased with it. It's so pretty, and the metallics she used are lovely.

Fairy Exchange-Sent

I recently took part in a fairy exchange, organised by a lovely lady called Angelique from South Africa. It was a group of us from Craft Bubble, and I really enjoyed stitching it.

It was a cute design from Cross Stitcher, and it only took 6 hours to do.

Fathers Day Card for my Dad

I made this for my Dad, and he loved it. For such a simple card, I thought it looked really effective when it was finished.

It was from a series of designs in Card Shop magazine.

Fathers Day Card for FIL

I made this card for my was a last minute one as hubby wanted to buy him one, but I couldn't allow that!! As a stitcher/card-maker, I couldn't just settle for a shop bought one lol

This took me about 4 hours to do, and he loved it.

These were done for exchanges this month, and were a lot of fun to do. As you can see, the themes were Chocoholic & Oriental.

Been busy stitching!!

I've really enjoyed it though, and I still have a couple of exchanges to get done, and some more cards lol

I hope you are all well, and are all busy stitching x

An Anniversary Card for my In-laws

I made this card for my hubby's Mum & Dad, who are celebrating 40 years of marriage this weekend. As you can see, I had some fun with embellishing the finished card. I hope they like it.

More ATC's!

Ok, these things are addictive!!!!! For such little cards, they are a lot of fun to do, and I love adding cute embellishments to the finished stitching.

These were also for exchanges on the forum, and they were Scottish themed & Cupcake theme.

A finished ATC.

This is an ATC I did for a monthly competition on the forum.

It was an any theme , so I chose a cute gnome, and had fun embellishing it with some summery bits!

Sorry for neglecting my blog!!!

My apologies for not updating my blog for a while....I have been really busy doing ATC exchanges, birthday cards, and a couple of exchanges!! I'm also still working on my Mickey Mouse SAL, he's not too far from being finished.

I've also been experimenting with card making too, which is an interesting diversion from my stitching at times!! And it's also another excuse to buy lots of new stash!!!
