Santas Little Helpers...


Morning  All, 

Well I do think an Arc might not be such a bad idea!! Its rained lots over the last 24 hours and then the wind arrived too. Not so good for my beautiful flowers :( They are in bits. 

Onto happier things. Its another challenge over at Fezziwigs Festive Frolics from this morning. This fortnight I have gone for ...
Shell is joining in with me today, so shes My Little Helper. :) 

We both coloured our creations in on kraft card.
I got my sewing machine out and did some wonky stitching too. I worked out why its wonky and its cause I get really nervous stitching and I tremble while Im doing it. The Joys of Anxiety Disorder!! 
Peek a Boo said the Elf on the inside!!! 

Card Recipe
5 x 5 Kraft Card
Clearly Besotted Stamps - Little Elves.  Trees and Hill free Clearly Besotted Stamps from Magazine.
Coloured with alcohol markers, prismacolour pencils and distress ink.
Stickles Glitter Glue
Papers HOTP.
Anchor Thread for Sewing.

My papers were a kit from about 12 years ago when you cut the pages out and just stuck the bits down to make a card. Ive improvised with mine to make them work for my card. I had also made the image an ATC size piece. 

Thanks for dropping by today,

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

Hi Hazel

Yes, lots of rain and wind here too .. .. though the sun is shining at the moment (just to give a false sense of a lovely day .. .. because in reality there are dark clouds looming ... again!!).

Loving your kraft card creation .. .. .. and more fabulous stitching too. So pleased you have stuck with it.

Lovely for you to have your pal Shell as your little helper too.

Have a good day.

Love Jules xx

A super card Hazel, sweet elves and lovely scene. If you hadn't mentioned it I would have thought your stitching was deliberately wonky - I think it looks great.
