Oh Christmas Tree

Hi crafty people, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas if you celebrate it. We had a fab day at home with my Mum staying for a couple of nights.  We had a really relaxing Christmas day and then went to see the new Mary Poppins film on boxing day which was fantastic.  Has anyone else seen it yet?  We went out the next day (can you tell I don’t know what day of the week that was…. or even is now?!) for a walk and visited Blackness Castle (which has been used in the filming of Outlander and the Outlaw King).  We got a membership to Historic Scotland recently as a gift and so this was our first use of the card and it was a great start.  I’m hoping that we will visit lots of castles over the next year.

But anyway I’m here to enter another challenge, I think my last for 2018!  This card is for the Alphabet Challenge which is currently at T for Trees.  I made up this card using  a magazine gift from a few months ago.  I used to do cross stitch (and I intend to pick it up again in 2019) so I loved the embroidery theme of this set.  I made the Christmas tree card first.


Then I made a Santa version too.  So I have a couple of cards in my 2019 Christmas card stash and it’s not even New Year yet!


Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and I’d love to hear how your week has been.

Fusion card challenge citrus … or …. Christmas!

Hi crafty people!  I hope you are having a good week and staying safe in the stormy weather.

Today I’m sharing my entry for the current Fusion card challenge….Fusion Citrus-001

This time I decided to opt for just the sketch and I was itching to use the free gift that came with issue 8 of Love Cardmaking magazine that I bought this morning (I think I have an addiction to craft magazines!)

So here is my card….


I used the cross stitch effect embossing folder, the stamps and the embroidery hoop dies from the set.  I just added a couple of patterned papers and voila!  I used to do lots of cross stitch and this set has made me think about picking it up again.  So many crafts so little time!


I hope you like my card and thanks so much for stopping by the blog.
