It is the season to be jolly! time for card making. Last Thursday while in the LimeGreen Umbrella these trees and leaping reindeer were hand stitched and designed into a Christmas card combining paper, felt, fabric and hand stitched embroidery. These are the mainly green with red accent but will have to try mainly red with green accent. What do you think ?

Thank you Liam Osite web design what a great job you have done on my website not to mention that it was a total pleasure to work with you Thanks. How about the super cute graphics courtesy of Michelle again it was a complete pleasure to work with Meech who totally got the Curlyrip brief. Speaking of brief Justin of perfect pints fame helped me to put together a brief that served me so well and formed the blueprint and continues to be the blueprint for Curlyrip. Finally this was all made possible because of my involvement in the CEIM Programme thanks Ultan for the opportunity.
