Finally - A Crafty Christmas Project!

Hello old friends!

I thought I would share with you a crafty project I completed for Christmas. As some of you are aware, my crafty mojo has all but deserted me so this blog has been inactive for quite some time. I can't say it has returned in its entirety, but I was sufficiently motivated to create some little cards for a Twelve Days of Christmas project.

This project was a Secret Santa of sorts - 12 anonymous presents inspired by the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Each present was accompanied by a hand-made little card featuring a poem written by me. Some of the presents were closely related to the song, some weren't - so poems were necessary to tie it all together!

They aren't terribly elaborate, but I was happy with how each one followed the same colour scheme and allowed the poem to take centre stage. Stupidly I forgot to note the name of the papers, so if anyone recognises them, please let me know.

It was a great deal of fun and I have written a post about the project which you can read on my other blog here. There you will find the entire story, and photos of all twelve cards. For this crafty blog, I thought I would just show you the ones where the cards looked best.

I am entering into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T - Anything Goes
Crafting for all Seasons - Anything But a Card
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas
Catch The Bug - Your Favourite Christmas Song

Ah, it's nice to be back.  I hope you enjoyed my first crafty project in a while. Remember to head to The Squirrel & The Fox for the Anything Goes challenge. The team have done a fantastic job with their DT inspiration for you.

Hopefully I will see you again soon!
