Afternoon Everyone,

Well I have finally finished my Mum and Dads Festive make for this year!! 

I think I was a tad ambitious with it. 

I have cheated a bit as there was meant to be leaves and holly on the top where the noel is but I decided to browse though my old magazines and found the sentiment and thought it would look good. 

Im now off to play with my new toy. I got a Brother Scan and Cut as an early Santa gift!! Hasn't he been good to me!!!! He cant have checked the Naughty and Nice list right!!!  I cut out my frame for this on it and also the Merry Christmas. I really need to learn a whole lot more though as I haven't got a clue!!! 

Card Recipe

7 x 7 Scalloped Card,

Anchor Sewing Pattern.

Sentiment - Scan n Cut

Gem from Stash

Im hoping to visit lots of your blogs now that this is done. I do have one extra special card to make but its not a Christmas one!!!! More on that another day!!!  Oh and a 70th Birthday creation to do too!!! 

I usually take part in Bugaboos Christmas week but I dont seem to have time this year :( 

Stay Safe Everyone,

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

It's beautiful Hazel - your cross stitching is so neat!
Well done on getting the SnC out of the box! So many people buy one and are afraid to use it. Look out for John Bloodworth/The Gentleman Crafter's course. It's on offer regularly - either on his blog or FB page. It's done through Udemy. You get any updates free and can access it when ever you want. I usually have it playing on my laptop while using the SnC.

What a wonderfully stunning card Hazel, your stitching is beautiful and the robin is such an iconic image for a Christmas card, gorgeous colours too.
Enjoy your wonderful present, Kate x

This is really beautiful! Love the colors, beautiful frame and gorgeous cross stitching.
Have fun with the Scan & Cut, I've been thinking about getting one since its release but it's so expensive and I'm not sure I'll use it enough. I've never used an electronic cutter before.

Thanks so much for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge where it's all about Christmas this week!
