We're back ...

 We're back from a couple of days in Devon and very lovely it was too ... the sun shone and the sea sparkled as always!  

Today is the first day back and so I have spent all morning catching up with e-mails and orders.  I have not had time to craft since I got back so here is a card that we did last year on a 'paper piecing' workshop.  Not sure why this card jumped out at me this morning as the card to share, perhaps something to do with packed bags and a car ready to go off on holiday!

The card does not really need much explanation.  The template can be sized to fit your card (I used an A6 card).

 And then it is just a case of cutting the relevant parts of the template out ...

... and tracing around them onto your paper choices.

As always, edging each piece with a little brown ink will give a little more dimension.  

I used a small circle punch for the headlights but if you do not have one you could just cut around the template!

Black and white gel pens add the final detail and a McGill Starburst punch was used as the bow on top of the presents.

Not too much to this one just a little bit of time and patience!


On a separate note I wanted to let you know that we have finished going to the Bedford Market on a Wednesday morning now.  The girls break up for the Summer holidays within the next few weeks and we have a lot to do this Summer so need Wednesday morning to give ourselves a head start.  I know that some of you who had popped over to see us said that you would come back before July (which was our date to finish) so I wanted to let you know in case you wondered where we were!
