I have not had much time lately for crafting. We have had 2 weeks off school holidays, I love the holidays relaxing with the kids and no routines to follow. I have also been sewing, I'm in the middle of making a wedding dress for a friend who is getting married on Saturday 31st October.
I have also been getting my craft room ready for classes, it is now ready. My first class was meant to be tonight but I didn't have any takers, so I spend the night finishing a few half finished items.

This card is one of the items I have just finished. It is a wiper card. I made it for a workshop in August but wasn't happy with the wiper. So I have  now fixed it,
As this is a Thank you card what could be better.

Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge # 43 (MTSC43)

A friend showed me how to make this Christmas Tree, It is very simple.
Cut 1 of each 3" square, 2 1/2" square, 2" Square and 1 1/2" square.
The fold is a Waterbomb Variation Teabag Fold, then you insert them into each to form a tree.
Thanks Fern.
