What a bad blogger I have been, it's so humid down here at the moment, and we're just so busy! I managed to make a few thank you cards for DD's pre-school teachers as next year she's off to primary school. I totally cased Kellie Winnell's card... thanks for the gorgeous inspiration Kellie! xx
The DP on this one is one I made using clip art apples repeatedly. I found an apple shaped template on google and kept the fold at the top. These are actually the last two cards I made, and a lot similar to Kellie's card. I crocheted the flowers myself ages ago and used both CC Designs & Magnolia Butterfly stamps.
These next two cards are a little simpler and for the relief teachers, the gorgeous papers are from a digi kit I found at a bargain price from Sassy Designs Inc. Big Apple Digital Pack. They're priced at just $3.99 BUT I fluked it and they were $0.80 per kit the day I stumbled across them!!
As you can see I paper-pieced both their dresses, and yes - the main DP is sideways. I'd already cut an apple shape, then decided I didn't like it before finding the template I ended up using. So, it was too small to fit properly the right-way-up, but I don't think it's all that noticeable right?
I love paper-pleating with tissue paper. So, so simple and really effective. I'd best go upstairs and check on my boys, their ceiling fan was clunking dangerously a little while ago when I stuck my head in and now that I can hear they're up I'd better go investigate... we'll be needing that fan - it's so HOT!
