I'm embarrassed to admit that this is one of only 4 Christmas cards I made this year. Despite a plethora of festive stamps, for the second year running, I've failed to send out any Christmas cards. Last years I was in the depths of morning sickness, so this year I'm just going to go ahead and blame the baby again! This time it's teething. I threw together 4 similar looking cards on Christmas Eve, and only because I truly couldn't bare to buy any. Maybe next year I'll be more organised (I say this every year).

So glad to get this finished. It was like a thorn in my side! I promised a friend I would make him one for his girlfriend. He offered to pay me for it, but to be honest it's one of those things that takes ages, so I just told him to cover the cost of buying the new thread colours. Anyway the pattern is from Wee Little Stitches, love that shop! I didn't enjoy stitching this as much as the Batman's Enemies one. It feels a bit drab to me, too many earthy tones. Of course hobbits don't wear fuschia pink so I can't really complain about the colours! Next on the list is an inspiration quote for a friend, and then Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Ethan!

This Lovely Layers stamp and die set really hasn't seen very much action I'm afraid. It was one of those sets that I wanted instantly, and then when it arrived I was in a bit of a crafting hole. I'm really loving the little details on the leaves. Purple and green are two of my favourite colour combos and these were the colours that were used on the birthday girl's cake. Hope she likes it!
Thanks for looking!

Sorry for the dark photos, but it's such a wintery day here. I miss natural light :(
