Carnival Time!

Lucy and Claire at Crumbs Blog have started a Carnival Blog Hop for Christmas.  The idea is to link the Carnival to a post about Christmas, so I thought I'd show you the Christmas stocking I made for my Grandson, Travis.  All the family have one of these stockings which are made from a McCall's pattern I bought in California in 1980!

December Birthday and Christmas

It's my great-aunt's birthday early in December, she will be 91 this year and she always appreciates a home made cards.  The stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms, coloured with watercolour pencils and painted and the flowers have been recycled from cards that other lovely crafters have given me (thanks).

I will certainly not be able to send everyone a homemade card this year but I made these two Christmas cards using Websters Pages and a little round Stampin' Up sentiment stamp.  

Two stamps used here and some more watercolour pencil painting. I'm afraid I can't remember whose  stamps they are, I was pleased that the Noel fitted perfectly across the 4" card.

More Art Journal

I'm not werid, I'm Limited Edition

If mosquitos only sucked fat!

I have been struggling to find time to craft, what with all the cooking and baking I'm doing over on Farmersgirl Kitchen.  But I've been on holiday this week, so managed to catch upon my art journal.  I was struggling with the first quote so decided just to go with text and a few doodly stamps and drawings.
The second one seemed to come easier. I used some freebie stamps I got from Simply Homemade magazine.
