Day 16 - Christmas Inspiration

Good Morning Everyone,

Wow! where did that weekend go??
As I mentioned we were at Inspirations in Preston all weekend demonstrating and teaching and it has been a fabulous weekend meeting lots of lovely people - some that we see on each visit and lots of lovely new crafters who we hope to see when we visit next time.
It was also great to see Nicky Hall, Ruth from Hunkydory and Sarah McCrosson who were demonstrating some goreous crafty goodies.  
Thankyou to Inspirations and looking forward to our next visit.

Well back to Christmas!
Todays little offering is a 6" x 6" card and I have used a lovely set of Woodware stamps that I really love, they have been designed perfectly for them to be used with paper piecing. Similar to the Reindeer a couple of days ago you stamp onto various papers and then cut up and mix and match together.  If you use the same papers for the backing also it looks a really clean image.
the message is also a stamp on this collection, a ribbon bow, faux stitching around the edge and strings of pearls finish the design off.
A neat and quiet contemporary little card which is one of my favourites.
I hope that you like it too and perhaps have a go at the idea.
Thankyou for popping in and I hope that you will leave a comment - dont forget the blog candy that is on offer at the end of the 30 days - we are half way through now!
See you tomorrow,
Bye for now

  9. So many fabulous cards, really liking the pastel colours. Normally I like my Christmas cards more traditional in greens, reds and golds, so wouldn't have thought about pastel baubles, but this,looks great and I will give it a try. Thanks for sharing x

  10. hi Jo, yes the weekend flew by, my friends and I rented a house in the Elvedon estate in Suffolk for a crafting weekend. It was super! but now I must catch up with all your cards. paper piecing I find is very relaxing and you have a super example here. Jackie xx
