Birthday Card

This card was made for Annalie in South Africa, I have stitched another pattern from Hobbydol book No 162 by Sjaak van Went.

Friendship Card

I made this friendship card for Robyn in February, it seems to be still floating around the world somewhere as it never arrived, it was just pure chance I had the same image twice so I made another one and sent which finally arrived, the pattern is from Hobbydol Book No 162 by Sjaak van Went.

March Friendship Card

For Petra, this card I stitched APA pattern No a726, I love this rose pattern, I have used a Marianne Border Design Die No,LRO396, this is a beautiful die. The papers I used for this card are from Dovecraft Floral Muse 6x6 Designer Paper Pack, they are beautiful papers and worked perfectly with the pattern, I then die cut the gift tag from a Mini Gift Tags X CUT Die, stamped Friend onto it inked around the edges and then attached some string and added to the stem of the rose.

Made for Hochanda TV.

 I am very proud to say that I was asked to make four cards with Ann's Paper Art Patterns for the Men's and Boys kit for Sparkle Stitch and Hochanda TV, here are the four cards I made and that were shown on TV today.
                                                APA PATTERN No a717                                       

For this card I used some background papers in my stash, I used Gutermaan thread No's 1074, 1222,1011 and 1023, I went around the edge of the card with a Pro Marker and a few pearls and peel-off 's finished the card. I use Centura Pearl cardstock to make  all my cards.

For this card I have stitched with thread No's 1234 and 1076, I cut my hubby's road map book of Kent to use as the background paper, again I have used a Pro Marker around the edges and added a few pearls and peel-off 's.

For this one I have used thread No's 1234, 1147, 1074, 1222, 1170, 1218, and 1055 . My hubby used to be in the Merchant Navy so I got him to tie a reef knot for me with some twine which I added onto the card, I then added a few black pearls and peel-off 's to finish.

And for this one I have used thread No's 1045, 1128, 1135 and 1234, I then found some Hobbydots in my stash that I used on the Tepee to decorate it and found the Tepee Paper in my stash which I used on the background, a few peel- off 's finished the card.
