Peace........

This is another felted/Angelina piece with an old Christmas stamp stitched in the centre, slightly bigger than a twinchie. I had problems capturing the colours with my camera.....they aren't quite right here somehow.
Have you seen this years stamps? They are similar to this one - and very beautiful. They feature the work of pre-Raphaelite artists. You can view them here.

I've been looking after a poorly husband this week.....and making Christmas tags! The first three have images from Lynn's lovely collage sheets which you can find here. The Father Christmas was cut from a piece of scrapbooking paper....and the 'Noel' tag is really red, not brown!







Before I go, I just wanted to show you my parcel of goodness from Jean....I really love the colours she uses in her work. I'm so happy with our 'trade'; thank you my friend!!

What a lot of fantastic creations to feast my eyes on, I love these, and the maze book, waxed paper book and felted flowers!
Hope your DH is feeling better now.
Good luck with your classes at the BTG, I'm certain you'll WOW them and have wonderful fun at the same time :-)
I imagine you are in some serious Cricut Love now ;-)

Your felted piece is so beautiful and I love the tags too. What a gorgeous parcel of goodies - you'll have a great time using them. Hope your husband is feeling better by now.

Those tags are getting me in the festive mood. I want to make my own cards this year. I am so hoping I will have some time to get them onto paper for once in my life but I don't want a poorly husband though. He will end up going in the santa sack as I am not a very good nurse.

Bezoek is Dutch for visit, I am a Dutch girl living in Leeds. You may have guessed by my spelling mistakes lol!
