Winter Wishes


Wow it's a  wild and Sunny Sunday here in East Yorkshire. I am doing my post later than expected today but I've made it at last.

Today I wanted to make something for the people I send Winter Wishes cards to instead of Christmas cards. Just because they don't celebrate it, I still want them to know I'm thinking about them. I only make a couple or so of these a year. Now when I started I knew what paper download I wanted to use and that I wanted to make a couple of cards using the same items. I like to challenge myself now and again.So here they are:

The paper download is 1 of my favourites called Winter wonderland .
All I printed out was 1 sheet of A4 with 2 papers on it, the rest were from 
my bits folder. Some twine, 1 set of snowflake dies and liquid pearls instead of gems etc.

Why not pop over to our Inspiration blog - Get funky and craft and share some of your Funkyhand makes or views with us there or on our Facebook page.

Now the reason I am late with my post is we've had mice in the kitchen. Discovered on Friday evening when I popped in the kitchen after my nice shower and 1 shot across the skirting boards.A few screams later and hubby set the traps.Caught the little one and 2 more in the traps today. Cleaned my kitchen floor after Friday nights discovery as I felt grubby, some time later went in the cupboard for the iron to find droppings everywhere, grabbed hubby - they'd only been munching on his pork scratchings - eek..... had to empty and scrub everything down. So my crafting fell by the wayside yesterday.

Anyway done lots of crafting today in my sunny conservatory.


Enjoy your Sunday evening.

  1. Beautiful cards so thoughtful to think of the ones that don't celebrate Christmas but you don't forget them how special you must make them feel .hope your mouse free soon xxx

  2. Gorgeous cards! I love how you've done the snowflakes offset from the cut out holes. Good luck on being mouse free and hope you've got them all. Crazy little creatures.

  3. Loving all the die cutting going on here. Great blue and white colour scheme too. I agree with Sheila (above) that it's nice of you to think of and send winter cards to people who don't celebrate Christmas.
