Love to Craft? This One Is For You!

Time for my midway post for the Love To Craft Challenge. Most of my projects are cards because that is my main craft. However I must just point out that the Love to Craft Challenge is always Anything Goes and covers any craft from cards to knitting, crochet to jewellery making, in fact anything goes. (It does what it says on the tin!) So whatever your particular craftiness is please share your projects with us at Love to Craft.

Today I would like to share with you the birthday card I made for our school administrator who is Womble mad.

Materials used:  

page from a Wombles book
black card
red card
white A5 card blank
Polychromo pencils

Colour the page in with Polychromos, trim to size and mat onto black card.

Use a computer to type out and print the greeting at a size that will fit the space in the middle of the picture. Attach to the topper.

Attach a piece of red card to the front of the card blank and finally add the topper.

I used a page from a book because I could not find any Womble stamps. If anyone knows of any out there please let me know! I have a few friends who are keen on the Wombles. In September my old class will be using the Wombles as a theme because the whole school is covering the topic ‘Going Green’ looking at environmental issues in general. I think maybe I should have waited one more term before retiring as I am fond of the Wombles too!

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Cute Card!!! I’ve not heard of the Wombles, but eBay is always a good place to search for odd stamps! I think it’s great that you created your own digi opportunity and it turned out so cute. Happy Birthday to your friend and thanks for playing along with us at PIP Challenges 🙂
