A4 Christmas card

Big cards are going to be in this Christmas... Apparently. Cards are
going to be either massive or tiny. My Christmas cards so far have all
been A6 so I'm trying A4 as well as some A7. I'm well aware it's august.


Yeah it's huge!! That's it next to a DVD

Craft clearout, as well as some good value canvases!

I've been busy clearing out my craft stock, and have been listing it all with free postage! I've also added some canvases if you want to take a look and grab a bargain piece of art.

This is all because Tiddles needs all her teeth out :( It's been a month full of expense, as we had a wasp nest, punctured tyre and I'm registering for my college course on Friday! Some months just go like that don't they?

Pesky Party!

It's the first Pesky Party tonight. I have a second one booked already for next Wednesday too! Ian said 'What if you sell them all tonight? You won't have time to make more before Wednesday?' - I said if I sold them all I'd be delighted as I have approximately £400 worth of cards :)

I'll let you know how it goes. Everyone who hears about it thinks it's a good idea, although I have more good ideas coming. I met the knitted food lady (Liz) at Crown Point, and she told me something a lady she knows does at christmas, so I think I may steal her idea.

and also...

New kokeshi canvases. I love making these

Kokeshi with butterfly

Kokeshi with flower

Been away for a couple of days...

it's the first Pesky Party tomorrow, so I've been busy making cards. Here are my favourites.

sizzix 013

This is a Jolly Nation 3d decoupage cat, with a matching gift tag. I love the little bowl

sizzix 009

This is a pocket card - I've popped a tag in it, but you can take the tag out, and use it for money or a gift token or something flat-ish - it sticks out from the card by a few mm, so it could even be jewellery

sizzix 005

and my absolute favourite. This one has brass brads on the front with a gold tie to keep it closed. Then when opened, the x-men 3d picture pops out on paper I've folded into springs!!

Thank you Bel for the huge goodie parcel! It inspired me to get on and
finish this as the little pearl buttons you sent were perfect for her
top. Will be in the mail on Monday!
