Vernon's Christmas Card- Country Music Santa

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 trousers are red shiny paper folded at the base to put his country music boots over them.
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.

Wording "To my husband, The Country Music Santa"
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.

  6. Hi Margaret! The stitch markers are quite easy to make all you need is beads, charms, small clips and those phone hanger dangles and some small key rings. And all you do is thread them through with a needle and thread as that was the easiest way. I hope this helps let me know how you go please!
    Hugs, Margaretha A.K.A. Typstatting
