Out of Africa

Having decided to represent African animals in my current African themed cards,
I decided to check out the most recent Newsletter of one of my favourite Animal support groups:WWF (World Wildlife Fund)

and as I flicked through the catalogue, I decided to use my cards to send a MESSAGE:
So, after visiting the WWF Gift Centre,
I borrowed the statement on their tee shirts

That show the world that wildlife crime is serious.

I hope the recipients of the cards appreciate my sentiments

It's beginning to look like Christmas...

 As I commence making Christmas cards.
This year I am determined to make a small dent in my stash, and I'm refusing to buy any new ingredients.
A couple of cards feature Christmas themes from machine embroidery  libraries and I'm pleased to say that they were "freebies"
(It's amazing what can be found when you trawl the Net.
The circular image in the lower left corner is meant to be a "snow ball"....a lovely brocade Santa is hiding behind the silver snow, and unfortunately my photography (lack of) skills don't do it justice.
