Happy New Year everyone and the first WOYWW of 2018.

No desk from me as it is covered in left over scraps, cards and wrapping all ready for upcycling for some cards for next Christmas!  This year I forgot I made about 20 cards from upcycled cards so when I opened the box of Christmas decs and found them it was a lovely surprise and also a relief as it took some of the strain off me-so I thought I would do it again and plan on making another 20 during January.

So instead of showing my desk I thought I would show just a few of the lovely cards I got:

top left is from Lunch Lady Jan, a woodcut printed card by Allen William Seaby, I adore this image so it is going to be added to my craft room wall.  

Below that is the lovely die cut Merry Christmas card from Shaz Silverwolf, so detailed and I love the poinsettia.

At the bottom (blue) is from Kelly Henkins (WOYWW and I also received a 8th anniversary ATC earlier this year)

Top right is a stamped and hand coloured image from fellow crafting coven member Julie (I believe her talented daughter Cat coloured it).

Bottom right is a drawn design my brother's father-in-law (Alan) designed and had printed

This is my favourite though-from my 2 year old niece, Emily.  Her footprint as Rudolph!

Some lovely handmade/inspirational cards, a huge thanks for them



  1. Certainly some lovely cards but I can understand you liking the Rudolph footprint best of all. What a cute idea.
    Happy New Year, Neet 2 xx

  2. that Rudolph footprint card is adorable!! what a fantastic idea. Happy New Year Helen #3

  3. Love the Rudolph card and a lovely memory to keep, perhaps she could do one every year showing how her feet grow! Anickoana#7

  4. Happy WOYWW. Some great cards there. I have safely put away my Christmas stash box - and hoping it will not come out until late summer at least. I am now all about thinking of spring cards! Ali x #9

  5. Happy New Year!

  7. How cute is that footprint! Oh I love that sort of thing! I think a find of 20 or so cards I. The Christmas box is a brilliant one, just the boost you need at an even more exhausting than normal time of year. Go you.

  8. Hi Kyla, glad you liked it! That Rudolph card is really inspired, looks great.Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxX

  9. Lovely cards, adore the rudolph :) Happy New year!

  10. Oh I remember doing something similar to Rudolph when my boys were at Pre-school! It's such a simple but effective idea, love it! I sent those woodblock cards to people who I knew would appreciate them so I'm glad you liked it - there was a bullfinch one too which was just as lovely.
    Hope 2018 is kind to you!
