Hi there - Another month nearly gone! I have finished feeding calves - have handed the job of feeding the last 16 calves milk, over to my son Matt, who is home for the holidays and is working for us to save some money for next year.
So I have been busy out in my garden and in my craft room! You can see a bit of my garden in the next photo - so nice and green after all the rain we have had! Can you see my Birdhouse? We moved it on to the trunk of a tree we cut down and there are about 6 birds living in there! Mum, Dad and 4 kids we think!! Anyway they are making a mess on my deck as they land on the roof to check if the coast is clear before going into the birdhouse! So I am not happy about the mess! Might have to board up the opening after they move out!
Anyway onto crafty stuff! I made a card kit up using Kaisercrafts Butterfly Kisses Collection.
I decorated a kraft bag to put everything in.
This is the sample card.
12 blank cards and envelopes.
Patterned paper for the background and strip across.
Some Stamped Happy Birthdays and some collectables.
All together and it all fits nicely into the bag.
I made this for a sweet 8 year old who loves to craft! She can make cards for her friends.
I have made some more of these and will show them later!
Hi there !
Liz has challenged the Artfull Crafts Design Team to come up with a project using the latest collection, Merry & Bright from Kaisercraft. So here is my effort...
I made 2 square cards and I might even make a couple more! Certainly a
different Christmas combination, but I know a certain someone who loves
these colours so one of these will have to be for her!
I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT girls create!
Last week at Artfull Crafts the Challenge was Christmas Cards -
so here's a set to show you that I made. Each year I like to mass produce Christmas
cards and this year this is
my go to design. Each card has a different background paper but the rest
is much the same.
I have used Spellbinders dies -2011 Heirloom Ornaments, Ribbon Banners and Decorative Labels 1.
The ornaments were cut out with lovely shiny red metallic card
that Liz has in the shop, I cut out a smaller one inside and then put
patterned paper behind it. I used the smaller ornament on the inside of
I have a few Christmas cards to make, so setting up a production line is
a good way to go for me. Also varying the papers keeps it interesting!
So how do you go about making your Christmas cards? I use to find I
would run out of time before Christmas and I would have to put them away
for the following year! I would love to be organized enough to make
one card a week during the year! Perhaps next year??!!
Make sure you enter your Christmas Card in the Gallery Competition
by Saturday 17th Nov to be in with a chance to win one of two prizes.
There are new Christmas Challenges each week from now til Christmas - so
don't miss out!!
Thought I would pop in and show you a card I made for the young guy who relief milks for us.
He turned 18 yesterday so thought a 'cow' card was appropriate for him. I also made chocolate cupcakes for him!!
