My First Christmas Card of 2010
Well I have really surprised myself by making a Christmas card already. Mind you I did make one early last year but didnt progress too much making more. Used my snowflake cuttlebug folder and then my scalloped circle nestabilites to cut a hole in it. Used a Martha Stewart border punch that I bought at the NEC in November and then backed it onto red card and added a piece of ribbon from my stash. Cut a snowflake and put it in the middle of the circle and added a peel off. The picture is a bit squinty.
I am 55 years old and have been crafting for as long as I can remember, in fact started knitting when I was just 5. I have attempted various crafts over the years which have included knitting, cross stitch, ceramics and now mainly card making. My favourite being decoupage as I find it most relaxing when I'm cutting out. Like most crafters have lots of stuff and could be doing with a massive room to keep it in. I am also a big F1 fan and love to watch it on a Sunday. I try to do some crafting each day but dont always manage it. I have two nieces and three great nephews and I love them all to bits. I married my Douglas in Las Vegas in 2010 and am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him.
