Oh Dear

Gosh I didn.t realise how long it has been since I last blogged I really must start again, I think it was because i couldn't get the light right on my photos which put me off.
I am starting my Christmas cards shortly so watch this space

This is a card I made using images I received from a swap on Crafts Beautiful forum, sorry about the light I just can't get it right


These are for a swap on Crafting Corner its a variety swap so we dont do the same every month this month it was to make 3 cushions, I have never done anything like this before and I am pleased with the way they have turned out.

For the cushion shape I used my circle nestabilities

For the background I water coloured with 3 different colours of my Stampin Up brush pens

I stiched them together with purple thread and put beads on the top 1

Thanks for looking
