Alex has had a good week this week, behaving nicely everyday much to my relief! Today saw his first school performance which was a sign language version of Percy the Park Keeper, and The Enormous Turnip. He enjoys performing but always looks faintly worried by it, or is that just a look of concentration?!
He joined in with most of it, with only the occassional lapse in concentration! The photos aren't great because they were taken on maximum zoom with no flash and have had to be cropped to show only Alex. As well as performing the children had made turnip soup and bread for us all to have. It was a lovely occasion.
Crafting wise I have been busy with Christmas cards this week, all along the clean and simple lines. This first one uses cream card, a cuttlebug embossing folder, images from Crafty individuals and some tapestry stamps. This fits with The Crazy challenge 'Something with wings' challenge.
The next card is similar, using the same components, but now has stitching on it and so fits with Ooh La La 'stitching challenge'
For these two cards I fought a long and hard battle with my Cuttlebug. After 6 failed attempts I finally managed to master the double emboss technique and so can enter these for Fluorishes Timeless Tuesdays 'Double emboss' challenge. I am also entering these into Delightful challenges 'snowflake' challenge.
The final set of Christmas cards use the new stamps I got free with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, which I have coloured with my promarkers. I am entering these into Papertake weekly 'Christmas cards' and DYSU 'inspired by a song' challenge (Winter wonderland).
And finally as a break from Christmas cards I also made this, which fits with Simon says stamp 'Poppy fields', Delicious Doodles 'Remembrance' and CCT 'reds for Remembrance' challenges. That is all from me for now. Have a great weekend everyone.
