New cards

A quick post today as I'm trying to get going with my crafts today (catching up after my brief IT problems last week - something about a laptop and a hoover!). I had fun creating some complementary cards for my "Beastie Tweedie" range of soft toy collectables, at the weekend. I ordered some "joggle" eyes from Fred Aldous as I thought they would be fun to use on cards.

I think I enjoyed the 'cheekiness' of using plastic joggle eyes and Harris Tweed together - a bit of a paradox! It was quite relaxing just to get the glue and scissors out - I had anticipated using some blanket stitch embellishing but I've decided to keep them simple for the moment. Here's the lady bug version.

. . . and the bumblebee:

and a quick preview of all four . . .

I think I can safely say that I released my "inner child" with these little fellows!

Hope you're having a fun day!
