Envelope and Knitting

Hi All and happy weekend. Hope you enjoy all that you have planned and thank you for your visit.

There a mail art challenge at PaperArtsy and I have just time to join in before it closes tomorrow

I used one of Astrid's freebie papers and they are beautiful enough to just use on their own for an envelope but as it is for a challenge I did do some stamping on it after printing it out onto a 5x5 inch envelope. Thank you Astrid for your kindness.

Lots of small stamps added in Distressed ink.

I always knit when I am watching television or I just fall asleep. Here are lots of hats I have knitted and I am hoping a neighbour will take them to the cancer unit for the patients who lose their hair. The neighbour is just finishing her chemo and her hair is growing back--I am so pleased for her. People give me lots of wool and I just love making up things I can use it for.

Have agreat day

Love Chrissie xx
