A Season to be Thankful

Hi folks,

Just thought I would pop in and share a Thanksgiving card I made for dearly beloved's Dad and Step-Mom.





Sadly, I forgot to take a photo of the inside - and I REALLY liked a detail I included on the inside of the card. I may have to make another one to show the technique.

Hello Baby!

Hi folks,

We finally got to meet our newest niece! Yay! She's two months old now and boy is she a cutie.

This is the little card I made to go with a little welcome to the family present we picked up for her.





Rather than colour the onesies on the front of the card, I decided to do a bit of paper-piecing. I think it worked out great!
