Christmas is Coming.......

Quilling has taken a back seat lately.
 However  I had to make a start on some Christmas cards.....and Advent is nearly here so I feel able to start posting Christmas things.

Altered Biscuit Cutter

Using scrapbook paper for background, I quilled a tiny cup as decoration.
I think I will make some more of these with a Christmas theme.

Back to Card Making

I have been busy decorating a cake but now I have the time to get back to some card creating.  I sent some off to a neighbouring church fete.  I hope they made some money for them.

Altered Paperclip

  A challenge on Papercraft Planet to make an altered paperclip.
I took a while to decide on how I would do this but once I picked out this button, which I had picked up at an op-shop, I had several ideas.
The quilled rose is made from old sheet music and the bead in the centre comes from an old tobacco tin full of broken beads from my grandmother's.  I come from a family of hoarders :-))

Quilled Easter Egg

Easter is not that far away and I decided to do some Easter quilling.   
I choose to make an all white egg with sparkly bits.  It took 2 days to complete and I have started on a purple one.

Altered Matchbox

This is the first decorated matchbox I have made.  The theme was "Romance" and it was done for a swap on Paper Craft Planet.
It was so much fun that I am going to do another one!

Australia Day Flowers

A celebration of our flora.   Five Australian wildflowers in a wreath shape.
I grew up in the bush so have an appreciation of the flowers that grow there.  Some are impossible to grow in a suburban garden.

New Year, New Quilling.

With a hot summer here,  I have been finding it hard to get back to quilling.  But I finally sat down and worked on a pattern from Australian Paper Crafts  that I had not tried before.   I made this card  with a Cooktown orchid for a family birthday.
