(Crafty) Friends and Family!

Hello, lovely blog friends.....hope you're having a great weekend. So this time, next week it will be Christmas Eve....eeek, how exciting! Later today, we are going to the Carol Service at a local Church. This is always an important part of our Christmas celebrations, to pause the hustle and bustle for a while and reflect on the real meaning of Christmas.

Moving away from the festive season for a mo, to tell you about the latest challenge with
and our theme this time is

My Mum's birthday is at the beginning of December, and this was just the opportunity to make a card for her......this really was the perfect image to use on my card - honestly, it is Mum to a tee!!! She is a very keen knitter, she has a pair of pink slippers, she loves stripes and even has a top very similar to this, so paper piecing was an absolute must. She absolutely adored this card, and has since put it up in a picture frame.
