More Stitched cards

Well Christmas was quite, we visited mother in Paulton Hospital on Christmas day, we were supposed to go to Oxfordshire on boxing Day. Unfortunately I have come down with the flu bug, last winter I never got a cold or flu, this is my second bout of the winter. Its been a mild Christmas here in Somerset, no wonder there are so many colds and flu going around. It started with a cough on Christmas eve night and progress all day on Christmas day. I could say its just another thing to round up the year nicely.

Today I thought I would bring you these couple of stitched cards I did on our holiday, they are in my esty store at the moment.
Its a peach card with butterflies in multi colour metallic thread and pink beads, and flowers in pink metallic thread and matching pink beads. the leaves are stitched in metallic green thread.
Using the Starform silver stitching peel offs.

This is a lilac card although this picture looks blue, no idea why, the ribbon is sheer pink and lilac mix, which I brought at the craft barn at Millets Garden Centre in Abingdon, when we went up to Oxfordshire.

The hats and flower are stitched with shades of purple metallic thread and purple beads.

This is a close up, I used gold Starform Stitching peel offs for this card.

I hope you have a good Christmas, I had from my Mother the book Playing with Picots by Martha Ess for Christmas and I have been playing with her patterns, I will show you my efforts when I have something to show you.

Until we meet again take care
