Collage and Cards

Hi All. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts at this busy time of year and for your comments that always make me happy At the moment it is a very wet and dark day here but I am hoping it will fair up a bit for our walk along the seafront to MIL's flat. She is still in hospital but we are making sure everything is OK for when she comes home eventually. The hospitals are so full she is being moved about from ward to ward and maybe even to another hospital they said yesterday. It is keeping us on our toes for sure.

At Art Journal Journey the theme is collage with some words added.

I did a digital page with Paint Shop Pro brushes I made and a very altered face image I had in a folder from a long time ago

Moo Mania and More start their new challenge today and the theme is Christmas. I am sure everyone has something to add for that theme and anything at all is allowed so long as it follows the theme.

I needed to make some cards quickly as I haven't had time to make many at all this Christmas. I did buy charity ones for almost everyone but they soon ran out.

You may remember this photo of me on the sleigh at Burton Agnes. I used this and stitched in Vic as well and added Santa hats and bows for the reindeer. The photographs were layered and stuck on white card.  I made fancy inners as well but forget to get a pic of those.

Hope you have a really lovely day

Chrissie xx
