My First Christmas Card!

Have made my first Christmas Card this morning - well started it a couple of days ago but got distracted with all the Olympics!

It is a House Mouse Decoupage Design which I have had for a couple of years but never had a card blank big enough to put it on.

Got the card as part of a special deal at a craft show in February at Maldon/Colchester, bargain cards but great quality 8 x 8.

Now have got to get on with some birthday cards I have got to make but wanted to say I had made a start on my Xmas cards!

Mum always jokes that I leave family cards right up to the last minute - ie the day before - and sometimes she is right - so she will be really pleased that I made her Mother's Day card about 10 days early!
Image is a housemouse one, from decoupage range from Joanna Sheen, the patchwork paper was from Poofie range from Docrafts. Decided on this image as Mum is thinking of starting to do patchwork or applique and thought it might inspire her!

Made these two cards for a friend of mine recently.

Iris is a work colleague who became a good friend and although I stopped working with her in 1995 we still keep in touch and we try to go out at least once a year if we can, if we can manage it.
Made this card as a get well card for her recent hip op - I know she didnt have a bandaged foot but she has crutches and the closest I could get!
This card was done for her 80th Birthday this week. She was delighted with it, even if she did open it a day early, the naughty woman!


I am going to do my blog regularly and by regularly I mean at least 2 or 3 times a week.

Will keep you updated on what is happening with me both on a craft basis and on a job seeking and grieving basis!
