Welcome to 2011 and hopefully a better year.
I am behind with my posting but this is the last Christmas card as usual its Vernon's card I make last. I know you are properly thinking what the hell is it. Vernon is into Country music fan so with the new macho board I treated myself to as they released in December on Create and craft no I did not buy it from them, I was crafty I went onto the Glitter Girls site and brought the board from them at the same price with cheaper postage, I am not silly. I made Vernon his card its the Country Music Santa.
The shirt I looked at his shirts in the wardrobe and based it on one of those only I did not have enough room to put the whole design on it, so this is part of a design. the buttons are just round circles I had in my box, and made it out of a light cream card.
I added a guitar peel off
I finished off the card with detailing the shirt, trousers, and belt, plus parcels and hanging stockings with silver peel offs. He loved his card, and was delighted with it.
I am currently working on some new cards in stitching and parchment plus some tatting which I am looking forward to showing you. I have a lot of new ideas plus hopefully a new blog with my writing just have to get myself sorted and well, that's the only new year resolution I have made to get better. Two appointments at the hospital this month, a scan on the 5th and a procedure on the 12th hopefully the surgeon will then get me sorted.
I hope you had a brilliant new year and look forward to seeing you again when you pass this way in blog land. In the meantime take care and hope you are well.
