Last Christmas Sarah (Twiggypeasticks) and I decided to do a little card swap together. So why not do it again for a second year?
Above is the cross stitch and felt card that Sarah sent me....but there is a twist.......it doubles up as a Christmas Tree decoration!
The colours go with our colour scheme and I think it is a brilliant idea which i think I might pinch for next year.
Of course I needed to send a card too and .......
..............I have forgotten which one I sent....how embarrassing! I made the set shown above and only these (I really must start much earlier).
So we both had the same technique idea.
I like using hessian and jute fabrics and combining it with loose linen fabric I thought it made a good change from glitter and sequins.
My new decoration has now been added to my collection of handmade tree decs that have been sent to me by blogger friends since 2008.
Many thanks I love them all and this year for the first time I used them to decorate my classroom and they generated quite a bit of interest!.
Quite glad it is Friday tomorrow been a very long week and my poor old eyes have really felt the strain this week.
