Biscornu Finish and a Few Other Things

WooHoo!! Finally, a finished piece of stitching is appearing on this blog. I have made another biscornu for a Swap-Bot exchange. This will be the last one I make for a while, I plan to concentrate in getting my UFOs finished and working a RR in late February with Stitch It Quick group. Now I just need to figure out what I am going to stitch in that RR.

Stitching

This biscornu is in honor of Valentines Day. It is stitched on Cameo Rose Zweigart 14ct Aida with DMC # 99 variegated floss and little tiny pinkish-red beads from Japan. This turned out to be the smallest Biscournu I have ever made and I just love the colors it will be hard to part with tomorrow. BooHoo!!


Papercrafts

I also completed a bookmark, coaster and tea exchange for Swap-Bot. The acrylic coaster is decorated with designer paper from K&Company and solid paper from Stampin Up!. I made a coordinating bookmark and tea packet holder. The idea of the swap is to have a cup of tea and enjoy a good book. Turned out pretty good, tomorrow they leave with the Postman as well.




Here are some cards I made for upcoming birthday and swaps. This particular layout was inspired by Dawn of Dawn's Stamping Studio. I love watching her videos, she has some great ideas. These are made with a combo of Stampin Up! and K&Company papers. The sentiments I printed on the computer onto Whisper White cardstock. Easy as pie!!

I love the biscornu. I received it Thursday (2-4-10) and I loved it. This made me think of my youngest granddaughter (age 16) who lives in Wichita Falls with her Mother. Thank you. Have a great day!
