‘Q’ for ,,,,, Quilting !! :-)

Hi all :-) did you know that it is only 124 days till Santa comes ?? not long is it !! I don’t know how many cards I have ready but the box is looking pretty full so am feeling quite chuffed :-) Being on a Christmas challenge DT has alot of bonuses :-)

this week it is the lovely Helen’s turn to choose the theme ,,,

Q for Quilting !

now there were a few groans when this idea was first suggested but I must admit I really enjoyed this one :-)

We have 2 fabulous sponsors :-

The lovely peeps over at LOTV who will be giving one lucky entrant a £10 voucher to the store ,,

and we also have the fabulous Crop Stop who will be giving a $15 voucher to their store too !! :-)


Lovely prizes eh !! I wish I could join in ,,,,, :-)

For my card I used one of the New Released Xmas Bella stamps from the Wild Rose Studio, this one is called Bella on Bauble, isn’t she CUTE !

When I saw this stamp I thought she could have alot of fun on this so I made it like it was a monkey rope swinging from a snowflake ,,,, what else !! :-)

Bella close up, I must say I do love the glittery bauble :-)

I really like these smaller easel cards, am not sure if there is a name for them ?? They are lighter to post and fit in an envelope more easily which is an important factor for me especially on Xmas cards when I have to post so many abroad :-)

Thanks for looking :-) we have some fabulously talented GD’s joining us and the super talented DT have all made some cracking cards to show you so please hop along to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see them :-)

I decided to make a little emergency sewing box for Amy to take with her when she goes back to Uni :-)

I have had this SU tin for ages, it was full of hardware, but I emptied it out, sanded it down and decorated it :-)

I will link the products I used at the bottom of this post but just to say the scissors were cut out on the Silhouette Cameo machine and the little needle book does actually have real needles inside it ,,, :-)

I will make a trip to the haberdashery and add more bits :-)
