Birthday Cards

Hi Everyone
I have actually managed to complete some cards today.
As it was a nice day I had enough light in my workshop (summerhouse) to get tucked in.
I have managed to do some stitching lately, I will be so pleased to get my eyes sorted and get back to the stitching properly. I find it a strain at the moment.

The first three are designs from A & N , you probably can't see it very well but I have put the lovely googly eyes on it.

The next one below is from one of Anns Paper Art patterns and I have stitched in onto patterned paper

And one below for the men.  I bought a load of dies from China, and well happy with them, they cut beautifully and mainly are very cheap. So don't take much thinking about how to put them together

Thanks for looking in, have a really good crafting week. 
Hopefully will be able to put more on soon
Comments will be very much appreciated
Take care
Sue xx

Elephant Grrrr!!!!

Well all last I have finished this project. It is the hardest thing I have ever made, and you've guessed it I will never do this again.
The finished elephant is 21 inches long and 11 inches tall.
It was an absolute nightmare to put together, I undid it  3 times before I finally came to the idea of pinning bits of paper on each piece numbering them all before starting again from scratch.  Only 43 pieces in total. (just a few Lol!!)

I have to thank my friend Janice for suggesting that I make it.  It's her turn now haha!!!

Good luck Janice !!!

The only thing good about it is that I have used up a lots of odds and ends of wool, so my stash is a lot smaller now

Don't know what  I am going to do with it now 😀😕😏

I will be really pleased when I have had my eyes done and finally get back to sensible crafting.

Take care everyone, happy crafting.

Love Sue xx
