Here you go, a non typical Carole card at last!!!
This is a birthday card I made for my friend Natalie's daughter Amber's birthday this week. Amber is mad about cats (especially Morris, hence the orange/ginger cat) but sadly can't have one of their own as both Natalie and her son Oliver are allergic to cats. The card was a free template with a magazine and I just covered it with paper, cut out some stripes and added a ribbon with a bell!
As well as it being Amber's birthday this week, it was also her brother Oliver's (bad planning on Natalie and Steve's part I say!!!) OK, I admit, this one probably is more of the usual Carole style and those funny glasses have once again come to the rescue:
Don't know what I will do when I have made cards for all the men/boys in my life using their funny glasses photos ... maybe a funny hat for next year?!
I have been wanting to have a go at patchwork. I made my one and only quilt 17 years ago when I was pregnant with Alex, using the fabric left over from making the nursery curtains. So yesterday, I went in search of some fabric to coordinate with the curtains and cushions that I made for our bedroom when we redecorated it about four years ago. I had mixed success, but found some perfect material for £5 a metre. Not sure how I will get on, especially as I want to make it kingsize, so I haven't invested in the wadding or the backing fabric yet. I am looking forward to designing my quilt, but until I have got all the fabrics I can't really start ...
