Scandinavian Christmas



... That's the challenge this week over at The Shabby Tea Room .. and due to commitments it's been sooo long since I got to enter one of their challenges ... so with some time on my hands I finally got to enter this one ... This is the inspirational photo ...



... Love this red and white ...
I have lots of pictures to share so I hope you don't get bored ...
I made a house gift box and a card ... this is the house


I made up the template and then stitched this pretty red and white fabric all around it 
... a cute fabric covered robin sits on a sparkly snowflake ...


Vellum patterned paper and lace on a corrugated roof ... 
more vellum and a wooden heart with a wooden covered flower on the side


This is the other side ... another heart with a covered butterfly 
and I strung heart shaped buttons with beads to each corner
then finished with a ribbon and a sparkly embellishment ...


 On to my card ... using the same theme ...  


I cut a heart shape out of thick felt and one out of the same fabric I used on the house 
and stitched them together ... added some lace ... 
a fabric flower with pearls and a gem and a sprig of berries



But see the heart comes off to use as a decoration ...


I had fun making this ... what do you think?

Whilst crafting today there have been two serious accidents at the back of my house ... just beyond our garden is some woodland and then a main road which is so very icy and drivers are still going too fast .. no sooner had the Fire brigade, police and ambulance cleared one accident when another car landed in exactly the same place ... scary!

Till soon ... keep safe
