Autumn is almost here

The clocks have not even gone back yet but sure feels like Autumn is here, some of the leaves are turning and the thought of hot chocolate and homemade marshmallows is becoming more appealing not to mention warm cider with ice cream and caramel sauce, yumm!!

What have I been making this week? another Christmas Card this time a double easel for a couple, love the art deco era.

Fairy Wands

A different take on a card a fairy wand with a gift tag, embellished with ribbons, feather and rose, the back of the tag has been left blank, measuring approx 5.5" tall. Wording on tag: Fairy Blessings, A sprinkle of magic or Fairydust. Each tag is different so a lucky dip.

Hair Combs

Quick and easy but still pretty, paper roses with organza ribbon bow.

Finally a card using Anna Griffin papers. The flower is hand drawn and cut out in different sizes, petals shaped with a hint of glitter, the butterfly adds extra sparkle.

Cannot believe how I managed it but a Christmas Card, Birthday Card, 12 Wands and 6 hair combs. What next?......

  9. Hi Caroline,

    How have you been? Everything looks so lovely. I have to say my favorite is the Art Deco easel card.

  10. I wonder if I am too old to have a fairy wand... does it do housework?
