Love all your cards, Mothergoose and Sue!!!

Here's another 'made before breakfast' card from me (no sewing this time, though):

I played with pencils the other week and did two versions of an apple, this is my second attempt but I am not sure that I don't prefer the first attempt better in some ways. I will show the second on in a link or else the old bat will moan at me! I wasn't happy with the leaf on the first one so left it off the second one.



Here is the first attempt

I like the shading more on the first one, and the colors more on the second one. smile

(That didn't help very much, did it?) grin

I like the leaf on your first one! It gives more depth to the image, but both of them are fantastic anyhow, Sue!

This is a card which I made today.

A crafting friend of mine has a day in March demonstrating in John Lewis in Oxford Street, the demonstrations are a particular brand of sewing notions, they are most well known for their threads. She asked some of us crafters to make her some cards using that brand of thread for display to show the diverse cards we can make using them. I have made a number for her so far and this one was today. The card is 8.25 by 8.25 inches so fairly large.

it's lovely! So elegant! Is that hand stiched or machined?

I got my Mum's sewing machine and it's pretty much brand new. I have to be game enough to use it on paper though. I doubt I'll ever really use it for proper sewing so I might as well just do it smile

Here's one I made last night for a sketch challenge

Love that.

It is hand stitched, takes an age but is fun to do.

It looks great ... I don't have that patience! I did get out the machine tonight and made this card. The stitching gets lost a bit but it was fun to give it a go.

Perhaps the simplest card I have made in a while, using a tag as the main focus and stickers smile

It is sometimes harder to make something fairly plain Jane, that is very effective so well done.

Cute card, Jill! (as are the two previous ones)
Love your tag idea, JM, and Sue, your stitching looks fantastic! I'd never have the patience!

Beautiful, just beautiful.

My sister and I went to a crop this evening for the first time in ages, and I actually finished five pages and a few cards! I'm trying to do a few pages covering each month this year, but it isn't turning out to be chronological, which is OK smile

This is the first page I did tonight.
