Host of Angels, and Two in one Heart


Hi,

Another very wet and windy weekend,  just getting fed up now with the wind and the continuous rain,  with many parts of the UK flooded,  hope spring is coming and the weather improves.
These are my host of Angels the pattern is called Angel in an hour by Donata Jones,  They are tatted in Lizbeth no 20 Peach,  ice pink (which is not showing up very well)  and christmas thread.  I really enjoyed this pattern and I am sure there will be more.



This heart is in Lizbeth no 20 Peach and is called Two-in-one heart by Tat-a-Renda.
Lovely pattern and very easy to tat,  its another pattern you will be seeing more of in the future.



I have not been doing much tatting recently,  I have a very long list to do so I really should start to reduce the list before any more new patterns arrive.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend

Art Deco Birthday card



Hi
I made this Art Deco birthday card for my sister in law Dee whose birthday is today,
I used Debbi Moore's CD Art Deco Romance,   I used both the backing sheet and the image from the CD and matted the image onto gold bushed miri card by Hunkydory,  used peel offs around the edges and finished off the card with pearls in the corners of the image plus some glitter on her dress.
I hope she likes her card.
After two weekends of storms and gale force winds and gallons of rain, hopefully this weekend will be a little calmer.,

CD Sunday plus Challenge # 29 Anything goes


Hi,
Time for another challenge at the CD Sunday plus Challenge blog,  as always it is Anything goes as long as something is used  from a CD, USB or Digital material.  This fortnight this challenge is being hosted Jocelyn.
For my card I  used Art Decadence CD by Debbi Moore,  its a beautiful CD and this is in my mind one of the lovely images on the CD.  I matted the image onto gold bushed Hunkydory card,  its getting to be one of my favorite miri card,  I used two different backing papers off the CD and added a printed ribbon strip and sentiment that came with the image.  Finished the card off with small pearls,  which I brought in Poundland.

CD Sunday plus Challenge - # 28 Anything goes


Hi,
Gosh here we are just into February,  looks like this year will be going as fast as last year.   Time for another challenge at the CD Sunday plus,  and as usual its anything goes as long as its from a CD, USB, or Digital material.  This fortnight I am hosting the challenge.
For my card and my first christmas card for the year I used a download from Debbi Moore website.   This kit is a free download to anyone who is a member of her website,  and it is worth joining her web site for the offers and free downloads she gives during the year.
I did mat the image onto Hunkydory silver bushed miri card and finished the card off with some silver peel offs.

1,000 post giveaway

Hi,

As promised before Christmas I said on reaching 1,000 posts I would do a giveaway,   I know its a bit late,  they say better late than never,  well after a lot of thought I decided that I would giveaway one of knitted doilies,   Which I have just finished,  I wanted to do something that would fit both my card making followers and my tatting followers so instead of one or the other I went for a knitted doily to be fair to both sides.
This doily has been knitted in merchandised cotton and can be machine washed up to a temperature of 40 degrees,  Its in a pale pink colour.
To win this doily  become a follower if you are not and please leave a comment,   I will draw a number on the 30th January 2020.
Good Luck
Margaret
