One of my recent makes was this delightful deer I made out of felt.
On the back I embroidered "Ethan 1st Christmas 2011", why I hear you cry? No, it wasn't some random thought, this was made especially for my new nephew (only 4 months old and cute as a button) to be hung on their tree.
Isn't he a bonnie lad, only 4 months old but already with a little personality!
My next make was this folder I made for my Nan in New Zealand. I have no idea what to buy a 87 yr old for Christmas so I decided to make her a folder and a dozen mixed cards.....I even included a 'with sympathy' card (well I wanted to cover all occasions!).
The final make is the Christmas card I made for my hubby. I used my stampotique stamp, stamping him on a vintage page and colouring him with inks. I added a party hat and some stickles for a little festive bling! I coloured the background with stains and painted some sequin waste with picket fence stains and used this to transfer the print to the page.
I took this final photo in my new photo light box that my parents bought me for Christmas-no more shadowy photos or having to wait until I am at home during daylight to take the shots (once I have sussed the proper way of using it!!).
