I attended a nuno felt workshop today with Brenda Dunford. We each made a scarf combining silk georgette with merino wool tops and here is mine although I do intend to add some beads on the flowers when I have some time to spare. It was quite hard work but terrific fun.

Another card to add to my Christmas pile - a straightforward step card this time. Background was made by stippling blue Brilliance ink then stamping snowflakes (stamps by craftwork cards), some trees (stamp by Art Impressions) and reindeer from a clear set by Papermania. The snowman is a stamp by Personal Impressions coloured using Sakura pens, wavy greeting and small trees in front were printed from Jingle Jangle Christmas by Polkadoodles and the message was created on the computer and punched out using SU oval punches. A bit of Art Institute glitter was added here and there.

Challenge 19 at Polkadoodles is to colour a digi stamp image and I have chosen Polly and some printed flowers from Sugar Birdies to make this side step card (I think that is what these are called). Polly was coloured using Copic markers.

Shutter cards seem to be popular at the moment and here is my variation of one seen on Jenny's blog - Stamping Moments. I used card from my stash and some stampin Up papers and stamps from the Touch of Nature set. I quite enjoyed making this although it does involve quite a bit of measuring and cutting.
Time seems to have been running away from me just lately and I'm struggling to keep up!! My aplhabet ATC swap was one of the casualties but today I've at last managed not only to catch up with my swap partner but have gone one ahead too so feeling quite pleased with myself. These are G for golf and giraffe; H for houses and heart; I for icing and India. All are stamped using a variety of stamps including Papermania, Hero Arts, Tanda, Judikins, Stamp Bug ansd free stamps from Craft Stamper.
