Rustic Christmas Card

I have a Wooden Reindeer Christmas Card to share with you all today, made up in my wee shed on a really blustery “winnie the pooh” kinda day ๐Ÿ˜‰

So… the clock’s went back last night and I enjoyed my extra wee hour in bed ๐Ÿ™‚ ย plus the UK are waiting on Hurricane St Jude landing this evening / tomorrow morning, England and Wales to experience the worst of it with 90mph winds and up here is Scotland its going to be a bit less at 50mph, but I think the weather men are saying we will get the worst of the rain… So to all my crafty friends down southm batten down the hatches and take care x

25 clips ‘n’ fibres

It feels like a very long time since I have posted anything!

I have a good reason too!

My daughter is home from Spain ๐Ÿ˜€

This evening I trotted up the garden path to my shed and made a wee something… I was beginning to have withdrawal symptoms!



supplies list:-

  • Stampin Up Neutrals cardstock pack I think I used the Stone coloured one ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Basic Grey 25th and Pine
  • Pink Paislee christmas die cuts from the city sidewalks collection
  • Stampin Up Envelope insert die
  • glossy accents for the holly berries

25 & Envi


it was fun trying out my new envelope insert die’s from Stampin’ Up, this card is 5 x 3.5, so I used a 6 x 6 piece of patterned paper, using the leftover strip on the card..

Next I thought I would share a couple of fold back clips I decorated with patterned paper, lace and some buttons..



I picked up the clips from the Pound Shop last week when I was out shopping with my daughter.

and finally, I received an order in the mail today with my sari silk fibres… I love these, and fear I may need to order more! ย I’m blaming Jess lol.. she is absolutely right, they are addictive, I want more already and I’ve not used these ones yet ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m planning to make something with these very soon, so watch this space.
