Handmade!!

I would say Good Morning but it's actually downright awful here in Dorset this morning and set to last all day according to them in the know!! Pony couldn't be persuaded to go out so she is having a duvet day!! I, on the other hand, will be at work so the weather can do what it likes!! Before that though I have a card to share for our new challenge at


and we'd like to see a handmade embellishment.



I made a net (old) type bow with a snowflake to hold on the tag which actually says "Winter Wishes". The Robin is by Digistamp Boutique and coloured with Promarkers. The papers are Krafty Christmas and the pom pom trim (also very old) came from my ribbon stash.

Some challenges I am playing along with

Open Minded Crafting #23 - Fowl of any kind
Creative Fingers #55 - Anything Goes
Crafty Little Fairies - Not a Square
C.R.A.F.T Challenge #284 - Winter
Digistamp Boutique - November Customer Competition

Thank you ever so much for your lovely comments on yesterday's post. I'm very lucky to have been chosen by such a fabulous chap!!

 Hope you have a good day...stay dry!! xx

Good morning, but like with you it's a horrible one here, don't blame Surprise having a duvet day. Jen the groom at work is busy clipping the horses and ponies today - did feel sorry for them, infact I felt sorry for Jen as it's no easy task doing the 4 of them. Now your card with that oh so cute image is just fab. Never noticed my mistake with frog instead of fog, Even after checking it, I will blame being tired. Another long day here with horse vaulting for Beth tonight. Hazel x
