Its all a Fabrication.................!!

Hi, like the rest of you I have been trying hard to get my Christmas cards done, but am so easily distracted to create other things...........


This is a large card decorated mainly in fabric made from a bag of Christmas material scraps.  The tag is card, painted in black gesso then stamped in white and edged with gold paint and a fabric heart.  Stamp by Inkadinkado, the rest are bits and pieces from my stash.  Have made 4 similar cards out of this bag of material scraps and have some left over, so it was a good buy for one pound wasn't it !

We've hung the winter curtains this weekend and bought the Christmas tree and decorations down from the attic and looking at some of these decorations they have definitely seen better days.....  A major sort out is in order methinks...........lol

Thank you for popping in and hope you all have a great week.  Take care, hugs Annette xx
