Popping in again to start off the creative week and to wish you all the best for the week ahead.
I've already written a post showing the handcrafted Christmas cards I made so this post has been written to show you some of the handcrafted gifts I made for family and close friends for 2013. Warning: The post is very picture heavy. I made a lot of gifts.
Present No. 1
A matching set of fingerless mittens, cowl and headband which I have crocheted with two lots of yarn on a 9mm hook using a pattern I found on Ravelry as a source of inspiration, however the hand part of the fingerless gloves have been knitted on a 4mm set of knitting needles with a crocheted cuff.
Present No. 6
Hope you have enjoyed looking at them. Please leave a comment as I love to read them.

So as I mentioned at the end of December 2013 I created quite a few Christmas cards for family and close friends and thought I would let you see some of them. I have listed some of the ingredients used as well.
First up is the card I created for my mum and dad and my father in law and his partner.
I used an image from the Polka Doodles CD called Magical Winter Part 1 and 2 and I printed it several times and decoupaged the image in several layers on an 8x8" card base and then added glitter from Cosmic Shimmer and Stickles.
For my two good friends I made cards as follows:
The beach hut card was made using a stamped from 'Little Clare Designs' called 'Christmas Beach Huts' stamped with Memento Ink Pad in Tuxedo Black. I have coloured the image using Promarkers (Sandstone, Caramel, Shale, Canary, Lime Green, Indigo Blue, Sky Blue, Soft Green, Cool Aqua, Bluebell, Duck Egg, Cocktail Pink, Lipstick Red, Crimson, Cool Grey 5, Bright Orange, Pear Green, Amethyst, Aubergine, Purple, Plum) . I used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen in white for the snow in the background and finished off with Ice Stickles glitter glue. The background paper is from Polka Doodles CD again Magical Winter.
