Happy Valentine's Day...

Happy Valentine's Day.
I have made Valentine Day cards to take to work for the past few years and they have been very popular. So last Sunday I sat down for a couple of hours and made the following. It is mainly the fact that i am sat down, relaxing and playing with felt and blanket fabric which is the main aim of this. Colleagues at work also get a card that is much nicer than shop bought. I am gradually converting them to handmade you see.

I also like using square cards, they seem to work better proportionally.

I did come up with an idea and then just made variations of it to create a batch run. Tried to make some slightly plainer for the men in our lives!

I gave hubby the dark blue one on left. Next on the cards (sorry no pun intended, but it worked didn't it?) are some Mother's Day cards. I skipped this last year and then was asked had I made any, typical, so this year I will make a few and take them in. I have also cut out some Easter items for this year which I shall be listing in my Folksy shop. I was very busy with these items last year and there will also be a couple of new designs to add to the range. More on that nearer the time.

I hope you all have a great day what you have planned.

Many thanks again for the lovely comments that are still being added to my Kitchen post. The highest number of responses that I have had since I started my blog. My hubby is really chuffed by what you have all said.

I now only need 4 more people to join in the ATC swap. remember, you only need one idea and make it 6 times and it can be on any theme. I need to know by Wednesday at the latest. Otherwise, I may have to call it off as I do not how to get around the numbers bit. Let me know. here is a link where you can see the type of thing you could make or though they could be much simpler. Mine will be.

Creative Swaps.

Go on, be brave.

Take care and have a great day.
