Hi fellow crafters and followers.  Today should be Monday and my final scheduling.  I will be returning home today from a relaxing weekend with my mum.  Off work tomorrow so I shall be crafting and will then be posting some christmas cards which I had been beavering away at during the bank holiday weekend.
So my card today, this was a special order.  Mona was celebrating a special birthday and she is living in a retirement home and has limited mobility, she does however love her knitting.
I started with a C5 plain white base followed by some brown pearlised card.  The backing paper is from a Swalk CD Rom by Crafters Companion - the first CD I think.  Using the same pearlised brown card I then stamped Mona's name with the patterned alphabet from Dimension Stamps.  As you can see this was stamped and embossed in gold and then cut out.  I die cut a nestie in the same brown card ready for the topper which is double knit peach wool knitted on two kebab sticks - plain stocking stitch.  Once I had finished the knitting I cut the kebabs sticks shorter and put some gems on the end to finish it off and to look like the end of knitting needles.  I then attached all of that to the brown nestie with pinflair glue.  The brown card candi finished everything off.
I was quite proud of this card, even if I do say so myself.  Mona loved it and so the customer who gave me feedback from Mona.
I hope you like it too.  Thank you for stopping by.  Take care.
