Good morning everyone! What an awful weekend off it turned out for me. Imagine my surprise when Saturday it starts snowing, and snowing....and snowing....
We ended up with this:
Trees came down on power lines, power went out mid afternoon, and that was the end of a productive crafting weekend. Yesterday we took a drive down to my parent's house in Jersey, my brothers were up from NC for the weekend, so we went for a visit. The power was out everywhere, from PA to NJ, we were lucky to find a gas station open to refuel!
Power was finally restored to us late last night, but there is no power in NJ where I was due for work this morning, so I stayed home.
That's the story morning glory, here's a card I finished up early this AM.
This stamp is from Sugar Nellie 'Knitted with Love'.
Fully decorated inside and out easel card. Fancy schmancy!
I made the little wool stocking with a Lifestyle Crafts (Quickutz) nesting stocking die. Sewed it together by hand with some aqua beads and embroidery floss. Added some greenery and a tiny wool felt rolled rose to the top.
The snowflakes are also cut from felt with a Stampin Up die (Northern Frost). I sewed some tiny seed beads to those too. Sometimes I just get in the mood for some decorative hand stitching/beadwork. It's very time consuming, so I don't do it often, but I LOVE the homespun charm it adds to cards.
The papers are a digital collection from Raspberry Road Designs, 'Christmas Thyme'.
Thanks for peeking in, have a SPOOKY FUN HALLOWEEN!
