Thankyou cards for the bridesmaids

To thank my bridesmaids I bought them jewellery but wanted to make a personal thankyou card. I found a wedding design library in an issue of WOCS and changed the colours to suit my wedding colours. I made a slightly different card for my maids of honour.

I even managed to finish them in time!

Christmas cards!

I’ve been filling the time with quick christmas card designs. Most of these are from World of Cross Stitching magazine. I liked this because it didn’t take long to finish one, and I could do whatever colours I wanted. I know the red snowflake doesn’t seem very christmassy but it’s to go on a green card.

You can see where I drew gridlines on – these need washing. I found them whilst digging through boxes for something else. They still need mounting on cards! The city scape is Edinburgh, for a friend who has made his life there. Santa’s reindeer need finishing but urgh metallic thread!
