heart Christmas pudding card

Pin It
Open in Mobile App Hi all, sitting here in humid hot weather :( with an ear ache that dose not help much. Anyway I'm off to the doctor in and hour so I wanted to get this up and survive the heat for the rest of the day. Beth comes home from Bali on Thursday and Ben has been home now for a couple of weeks. Madaleine finishes school for the year next week and plans so far for Christmas is to spend some time with my Mum and Dad. I've also finished a few doily's. You can find all the links to those patterns on my Pinterest board

 I got the inspiration for this tutorial from a little felt Christmas decoration in the shape of a heart but made to look like a Christmas pudding. I think its come up pretty cute as a gift card. See all the supply's needed in the pic below to make a whole bunch for yourself, they were supper quick to put together and you could also try this same concept with different size hearts on a regular shaped card. Enjoy!

 Blessings to you

and a last thought
A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light 
and my salvation; whom shall I fear? 
the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
 Psalm 27:1

I hope you feel much better very soon! It was 70 degrees here this evening...way too warm for Illinois (the States) in December! I always enjoy your videos, even when I don't comment. Thanks for doing them! And get better very soon!
