Chocolate Bar Wrapper

Well here goes, 2 posts in one day, never been done on here before, haha, I suppose there's always a 1st.

This is a chocolate bar wrapper, that I have made using the idea from Christine Emberson of Hope & Chances Creativity. (She is a designer for Spellbinders)  If you have never looked at her blog, she has some wonderful ideas on there.  So I have copied the idea, but have done my own interpretation.  It is so easy to do and great fun for that little extra pressie at Christmas, I have got to do 5 in total.   Christines design is much better than mine, but I am quite pleased with this one.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking

Birthday Card for my Sister

I made this Birthday card for my Sister using the lovely doily die called Tranquil Lace from Couture Creations. It is such a pretty die. I stitched the pattern in the middle using Anns Paper Art pattern a100 then added purple ribbon and stitched round the doily. I then used lace with attached pearls down the side of the card and added a few more pearls.
Thanks for looking
Take care Sue xx

Another Quilt

Hi Ladies
I have just made this baby cot quilt.  I have stitched it by hand and thoroughly enjoyed doing so.  It is for my 6th great grandchild due later this month, I am just waiting for the little fellow to arrive and then I can do the label on the back, so it is ready and waiting.
Now perhaps I will carry on doing my Christmas cards.  I have another order for a quilt and 2 to completely finish off, so never a dull moment.
I went with the ladies from the 2 craft clubs yesterday to Oyster Stamps and did a workshop. We made a lovely decoration using beads and die cutting, it was rather fiddly but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, many thanks to Jan & Maureen for bringing along lovely cakes, (They can come anytime they like).  Later on I will put a picture of the ornament we made on here, I am going to go and cut some more card with the die I bought from Oyster Stamps.
Thanks for looking
