Advent 2016 - eleven

Following on from yesterday's Christmas Card post... Some more hand made cards. Once again I joined in with Amy's Christmas Card Swap and this year I was paired up with Tricky and his family who live in Spain. This week I received this beautiful Santa card made by his children. I love the way his beard is made from their hand prints... thank you little Wolf Cubs x


In return I sent this Christmas tree, stitched onto metal... even the sequins were stitched on by machine! It was one of the projects I did with my class before the end of term.


It is a small but lovely way to reach out and connect to other people so thank you Amy for organising again... And Happy Christmas to Tricky, Carly and the wolf Cubs!

  6. So glad you like it, the whole santa is actually made out of all 4 of our hand prints, my thumb makes up most of his hat :) the card you sent us is beautiful, we're really glad we joined in with the swap

  7. That reminds me of the metal embroidered brooch that I wear on my winter coat - hand made by you of course.
