Leafy Tag and WOYWW

What a nice week it's been despite the grey clouds!
Brittany at Fiber Haus has run an article on my work for her newsletter, 
and I was so pleased with how it turned out - thank you Brittany.  
Here's a link to the article and for any one who loves yarn her website is well worth a look.

Here's a tag I made, it turned out more autumn-y than wintery, perhaps I should have added snow, but then it would have been too Christmassy!!

A Little Lace Pin Cushion and WOYWW

I made a small pin cushion for a friend, using a silver salt dish
 I found in a junk shop.
The flowers are made from gathered seam binding. 

I'm linking up with Julia over at WOYWW to share what's on my desk this week.
A belated Happy New Year to you!

Pine Cone Christmas Cards

 A couple more Christmas cards to share.
I managed to find some nice deep envelope boxes at  that are ideal for those of us who forget to 'think thin' when card-making!!

Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy 
and creative New Year to one and all.

This week I'm linking up with the deskers over at the Stamping Ground.

Christmas Cards

I've churned out about three cards this week!  It's relaxing and I love it but I think I need to up my game if I'm going to be done by Christmas!
Here's a couple of them...

Autumn Leaves Tags

 Tags are made - that's the autumn birthdays dealt with, now back to Christmas card making!

 You can see the shine and detail of the foil more clearly in these close-up pictures - it was quite difficult photograph.

Autumn and Halloween

Well here's a rare photo of my desk - I'm in the middle of making some autumn gift tags and as I'm making 3 there seems to be loads more mess on the table than usual.  I have been using foil and die-cut leaves - I feel they look promising but to be honest anything can happen!  They will either be finished by next week or the whole lot will be dumped in a box and never seen again!!

I've also just finished a birthday card...

...and a couple of Halloween cards.  They are all using the same three colours and the same Physalis/Chinese Lanterns die, but hopefully the birthday one (above) doesn't look too Halloweeny!
I'm finding this little church die very versatile and have used it in previous posts here and here for Christmas cards.

...and finally a Trick or Treat bag for my sister - I always try and have some more grown-up sweets for her when she brings my nephews round Trick or Treating !

I'm linking up with Julia over at What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday, why not pop over and see what other people have on their desks today.

Autumn Birthday Cards

We have lots of birthdays in October so the Christmas card making has stopped and here are a couple of Autumn cards I've made.  

This card has an embossed panel on the front that I made using a nestie die with rubber embossing mats to replace one of the clear cutting pads (this will probably only make sense if you use a Bigshot!) - I think it's quite effective although the photo doesn't show it very well.

Christmas Cards and WOYWW

I am rather loving this little church die (it's also in my last post here) -  and I'm still feeling smug that I'm churning out Christmas cards like my life depended on it!
