Follow Your Dreams......



Hello Blogger's.

How the week going for you?  It's been quite busy here, desperately trying to get all the Christmas cards ready for mailing!

Here's one of the little cards I made over the week end using another of LOTV boys images.  Don't you just love the look on this little cuties face........How clever, three dots and an dash can make such a difference.

I coloured the image with Copic markers. The DP is from Webster's Pages with navy and blue American Crafts paper.  I stitched around the DP, added some jute and a navy button...... all done!  I love this little card hope you like it too.

 General chat:

I asked my Mum at the week end if there was anything she would really like for Christmas.  I'm sending back to the UK so much prefer if she tells me a few things that she would like.  I have to tell you she has baskets and bags full of toiletries, stashed in cupboards ......... my five brothers always go for the 'safe' option.  Anyway there was a slight pause before she said ......well I'd really like an Apron!  Seriously!
I'd made one of my brother's a cooks Apron some years ago and it seems she really liked it.  

So today, I set up my long neglected sewing machine and I made Mum her cooks apron and whilst I was at it a frilly one for good measure!  I was smiling all the time the sewing machine was stitching away, such a simple thing to ask for!     Now I just need to think of something to go with them............

My Mum's name is Betty and she' left handed!

Your little boy card is adorable! Love the twine with it.
Sometimes the simple things ARE the best! How much nicer than a lovely apron you made just for her and something she can wear and have close to her every time she goes into the kitchen. You are a special daughter!
Thanks for sharing! :o)
