Geese Card

I made this using the Horrice & Friends CD from Fee J Designs.

All papers and images are from the CD, I just added some embossed pearl card behind the image, some organza ribbon and fabric flowers.

I'd like to share this with Make It Monday's Linky Party, which is always Anything Goes.

Woolly Jumper

Another of my woolly jumper cards, I knitted the little jumper and I made the background by printing the pattern for the jumper onto some pink card (printed from Polkadoodles Candy Doodles CD).

I embossed the scalloped circle with a Cuttlebug folder and inked the raised bits, the knitting needles are cocktail sticks and beads. The wording is computer printed and matted onto black pearl card, and finally some black organza ribbon to finish it off.

Highland Cow Christmas Card

I got this lovely stamp as a birthday present from a friend, I thought it was perfect for a Christmas card.

It's from the Heritage Rubber Stamp Co. I stamped it in brown ink and heat embossed it, with glitter added to his horns and grass, then cut the image out with a Spellbinders die.

The card base is a Kraft card blank. I stamped the background onto speckle card and inked the edges, the snowflakes are punched and glittered with card candi added to the centres. Brown raffia tied down the side.

Cross Stitch Reindeer Card

The pattern for the reindeer is from Scandinavian Cross Stitch Designs by Jana Hauschild Lindberg. I stitched the reindeer on 14 count rustico aida fabric and attached it to a piece of card slightly smaller than the fabric with brads, and then fixed it to the background with foam tape.

I made the background by stamping a small snowflake on some speckle card with brown ink, and stuck this onto a kraft card blank. To finish it off I tied brown satin holly ribbon along the side.

Cat Tea Cosy

A tea cosy I knitted for a friend for Christmas. The pattern came from a book called Tea Cozies 2. A few years ago Knitting magazine held a tea cosy designing competition and this book is a compilation of some of the entries they had.

The cosy was designed by Sheila Woolrich, I knitted the main part of the cosy in Stylecraft Life double knitting wool, using one strand of cream and one strand of pebble.

Everything else is double knitting wool from my stash. The small yellow flowers are crocheted with crochet chains for the stems.

The large purple flower is also crocheted with one of the smaller flowers in the centre, the leaves are knitted.
