Hanukkah cards

Here are a couple of Hanukkah cards. I had meant to stitch them but am so behind this year that I had to make them. They are pyramid cards.

My first pyramid cards.

I could never see the point of them but I was a little bored yesterday and decided to try them. I used Publisher for the images and to save ink I put a white box on every image to save ink. If you do this you have to make sure the smaller images are slightly bigger than the white box so it covers it properly and no white shows. Now I am hooked. There are no sentiments yet because I can't find them.

Christmas card with new teabag fold

Here is a simple little card with a new fold from Lucy called Andy's fold. It is a lot easier than it looks and is particularly nice with a snowflake paper. Once again I was being thrifty, the card was a freebie, the blue metallic card was a scrap and the sparkly snowflakes were lying around. The teabag paper is one of my own designs.

Quick cross stitch for Christmas

I saw something in a magazine that gave me the idea for this simple cross stitch wall hanging. It should be a quick stitch for someone. It can be stitched in gold or a gold coloured floss blended with Kreinik blending filament. I wish I had the time to do it myself but I have presents to stitch and I haven't done any for about a week.
