Creating for Christmas already???????

 It seems no time at all since I was creating for Christmas
last season and here we are again!
Something to do with the older we get the faster time flies!!!
but at least I have been having fun
to show what I have been up to in my studio 
here are
some new cards to celebrate the occasion once again.

 There is a mix of vintage angel images and cherub angels
like this one where I have used a beautiful stencil
with plaster onto silk organza.

These pieces have been sewn on to oval cards.


 With this first one I created a type of crazy patchwork
of vintage and antique laces and embroidered linen in the background and then embellished with
some lace applique
this one has a background of felted bamboo cotton with layers
of felted chiffon and then embellished with lace fabrics.


 The next one shows a very sweet winged angel from
(thank you Karen!)


 on layers of vintage fabrics and felted chiffon.


 and this last one of a praying child
on her knees on her bed
which I simply could not resist sharing!


These are now in my Etsy Shop!
Click on the link and it will take you to the shop
with more images and info.

Many thanks for your kind visits as always and for
always continuing to leave such sweet comments.

Love and hugs,
Suzy xox

  6. just wonderful cards! how creative you are!!

  7. Oh my goodness Suszy your cards; each one is a work of art! In true vintage fashion. It is a joy to visit your blog and see all your creativity with fabrics and lace. The stenciled plaster is amazing. I like the results of 'media' on fabric. Thank you for sharing your inspirational work~ Karen O.

  8. Your craft is stunning. Love it! Going to visit your etsy shop ...

    Have a wonderful week!

  9. Exquisite Suzy artwork on display.
    The images are so pretty but then in your hands, with the pieces of vintage laces and all your beautiful textiles, you transcend pretty images into the most divine cards.

  10. Gorgeous. Yes it is that time again, me too. xox

  11. Yes, I do believe our world is spinnng faster simply for the fact that we are "on" 24/7/365. People are not taking time to relax or enjoy and just merely be in the moment. Your works are stunning dear...

  12. Suzy, such wonderfully vintage and unique Christmas cards you've created! I love the praying child one.

    I am sad to say I am flat out with Gonski Week this week, and will only be watching the Simply Neutrals party.I have an article and photos in the Bay Post online if you want to see what I've been up to. There's a link to the petition in the comments if you'd like to sign it:

    hugs, Jesse

  13. as usual, really stunning and special cards Suzy!!

  14. These are so gorgeous as well!! Beautiful compositions of gorgeous fabrics and laces in winter hues. I admire how many gorgeous cards you make in a short time. Wishing you a beautiful day, hugs xx

  15. I am absolutely refusing to even look at the calendar because I know I will panic if I do. I normally have all my gifts either finished or well underway by now and this year I haven't started a single one. Oh yes, I can feel a panic attack coming on! Oh well - at least I can count on coming here and seeing such pretties to inspire me.


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
