January postcard swap

This is my postcard for the January postcard swap over on UK Stampers forum

The theme this month is New Beginnings
I'm fond of this stork stamp & stamped it out & coloured it in using my copics & a white paint marker. I removed the leg portion of the stamp when I cut it out & positioned him as 'flying in'

I used individual letters from a small stamp set to stamp the wording

and I stamped the sentiment stamp using distress ink & then popped the hand & foot prints on.

Hand felted bags

that I made as Christmas presents for my sister-in-law & niece

I had made the felt at an evening class

I then needle felted the seams together to form the bag

and needle felted the heart shapes which were needle felted onto the bag

and I used a beaded felt ball as a button for the fastener.

I used the same process for the Autumn coloured bag

using a white felt ball as the button this time

I really enjoyed the felt making process & was pleased with the way the bags looked when finished & decorated.

A hint .................

As to why my blogging has been missing ...

This is the jacket I knitted for our new granddaughter Ayda who arrived on the 30th Sept. As she & our daughter & son-in-law were living with us for the first 3 months of her life my crafting & blogging took a back seat for a while!
