So as it stands I have still to make about 35 cards and shop for presents for about ten more people and get everything delivered before Christmas...glad I don't have to worry about Christmas dinner as my husband takes care of that, I haven't cooked a Christmas dinner in 29 years!
Well the panic is starting to settle in and there is no sign of Santa's Little Helpers so I will just have to get my head down. Try for no distractions...turning phone off and not answering door... as for the presents, that will have to be a last minute dash which I hate to do but I have no choice. I did go for a little walk with my son to clear my head, but I was so tired that I fell asleep at 4.30 today and didn't wake up until after 9pm.
I did get to feed the Wild Boars and the Goat today so it wasn't a complete failure.
Take a Pro-Marker of the colour that matches your design and colour the thread and leave to dry for a few minutes.
Roll the thread off the pencil and cut at one end (as the thread will be in a loop). Now all you have to do is to turn your piece over and stick down the thread to the back with some craft glue ( tape doesn't really work as you have to make sure that all the thread is going to stay in place). Leave to dry and you are left with a soft fringe / tassel
So now that that is done I can get on with making the card up...just got a background to finish for this one and also to finish layering up the little guy then mount him on a card and do an insert and make an envelope and get him handed out...only 34 more after that!
Can you guess what my new year resolution is going to be?
Yup, make at least 5 Christmas cards a month, every month. Or maybe I should just go for one design and copy that for everyone.....nah couldn't do that, I would rather give up!
Hugs to all xx
