"O Holy Night"

Salt Challenge this week is 'O Holy Night', here is the blurb 'it is almost here.the most wonderful time of the year.not just because of the presents and the food and the family time - fun though they are. But because, on this most holy of nights, God comes to us as one of us. Amazing love.' I incorporated the lyrics into my card, using royal purple and touches of gold. This was just one of those cards I kept adding too! Please do look at the lovely design teams contributions, hard work and effort is put in, it is a shame not more people come and see.

Fabric Flowers

Do you remember I said that although I had been busy I was still crafting? well... these are what I have been making. I stumbled across a pattern on the internet and have been merrily making these flower brooches, they are great Christmas sellers too. Most o them are made from off cuts and fabrioc remnants or samples, some out of felt, with buttons for the centre.

I made these for my son's nursery teachers, incorporating colours that I thought would suit them.

This is a better photo....some more recent ones

Back to the Drawing Board

So nice to have a bit of time to sit back at my craft table! Just managed to sneak in making a couple of cards, it was either that or washing up... Hmmm.... let me think?!!!! My overdue Salt challenge, I knocked up this card for last week's topic of 'God is Good', so i used black, red and off white- something bold that gets the message across!

This card is for my Mother in Laws up and coming birthday oh- tomorrow infact! The pearl centres of the flower are to tie in with her present :)
