About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

One Stitch At A Time {OSAAT} Challenge 236 Anything Goes Special Lady

This is my first post for One Stitch At  A Time {I’m am so honoured to be allowed to cover for Nataliya whilst she takes a holiday} and I wanted it to say something about me as well as the theme for the challenge.

The theme this fortnight as One Stitch at a time is anything goes with special lady.  Now I have a few of those in my life, however recently one person has shown me just what a special lady they are through helping me when things got tough.  I send her happy mail a lot and she gets a special birthday card but when it comes to Christmas…the sheer number of cards to be made and sent at the same time means she generally gets a boring handmade card.  I saw the OSAAT challenge theme as a good way to show her how special I think she is at Christmas.

I’ve chosen to use the pilbury snoboy image because the snowman is baking and I love to bake and share cakes {because I’m not that fussed about eating cakes}.  It also shows how I’d love to bake for her and really show this person how much I appreciate her and how special she is to me.

I’ve coloured the image using promarkers.  Vellum is something I don’t use very often so I have inked it using blue distress inks.  I’ve embossed a light blue vellum and glued it on to a sheet of silver mirri card.  Tied a ribbon around it, I’m not very good with tying bows so all tips welcome.  I’ve then adhered the image to the top.  I die cut the snowflake border and used liquid pearls to decorate that and the side of the card.  The sentiment is handwritten and heat embossed, it reads:  Wishing a special lady a Merry Christmas.

Here’s an image for you to look at and thank you for popping by.
