Works in progress

Hi Crafty Friends

Looks like I've been falling behind in blogland again, so here is a motley collection of things I've been working on. I've got all sorts of niggles about them, but I thought I'd show you anyway.

First of all a Christmas card I started at the brilliant crafting day we had at Debbie's (thanks Debbie).
I keep meaning to move the 'merry' or do it in a lighter colour. It looks a bit lost at the mo.

Sadly, I had occasion for a sympathy card. I took inspiration from Kathy K, so apologies Kathy for using your idea (less elegantly)

KathyG very kindly gave me some paper recently, and I thought it would make a really pretty, feminine card, so that's what I went for. Thanks Kathy.

Love the paper, but not entirely happy with the finished effect, so I had another go. I think I managed the flowers/leaves better on this one.

This Christmas card is based on the triptych we did in class. Not totally happy with the decoration yet, but love the idea of the three sections held with ribbons, and will certainly be having another go.
This is the front

And the back. The red flourishes are my latest die, love it.

Happy crafting
