Happy Birthday Jake!!

 Hi Everyone in Blogland.  

Today is my eldest sons 22nd birthday!!! Golly I dont know how that works as I'm 21 next week!?!?! LOL
 Jake loves his kilt and heritage so I have made a very Thomson card for him.  The tartan is Dress Thomson.  I even dressed wee Hamish here in his Thomson tartan kilt too by paper piecing the stamp. 
 On the inside I have made a tag that I have popped some money in for him.

Little Belles Card...

 Hi Folks,

Well its been a while!!!! I have had to dust off the cobwebs from my wee blog and also the cardmaking stuff!!! Ive not really done much in the way of card making since before christmas. I have been focusing more on my cross stitch and tapestry. Although since just before christmas my wee woof has been poorly so a lot of time has been spent cuddling and visiting vets!!! 
Yesterday though she finally got the all clear to be a happy pup again so fingers crossed we are on the right road!! This is her card to say thanks to the vets for all the drugs (but not the horrible collar she had when she got her bandages off to stop nibbling at her stitches!! That was a whole other nightmare!!!)

All Our Yesterdays,

Eveing Everyone.

By Golly its gone really cold here all of a sudden. Think we had such a mild November that we are really taking bad with the winter chill.  

I have made another festive card doing cross stitching.  Now this cross stitch was started over 9 years ago and was popped in the box and forgotten about until last week.  I decided to get it completed and sent this year. The All Our Yesterdays kit was a free one from a magazine. It did have an original mount but it was really tatty from all the years in the sewing box so I did my own design.

Thanks for dropping by my wee bit of blogland.

Im now off to complete my card making cards for the festive season!!!  Its been brilliant going back to my cross stiching so I think thats what I may do a lot more of next year,

Love and Sparkles

More Cross Stitch...

Hi Folks,

I thought I would pop by with another wee card I have made this week. 

I thought I could combine my papercrafting with a wee cross stitch design I found in Cross Stitch Crazys Winter 2018 magazine. I didnt want to make the card too fancy as I felt it would take away from the image so went with some snowflake papers and a wee ribbon. 

Card Recipe
6 x 6 Card
Holographic Card
Stitched Die Cuts - Memory Box
Stitched Camper Van.
Seam Binding
Paper- Old from stash.

Hope that everyone is well, Im now off to cmplete another wee cross stitch that I found when sorting cross stitching stuff out. Its about 10 years old and was half finished so it now just needs back stitching and then that will be made up into another of my cards for this festive season,

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx
