365 Somethings - Week 47, and A New Friend in my Craft Studio

Happy Monday morning everyone!

As it's Monday again, I have my week 47 set of teabag art to share with you for IHanna's 365 Somethings Challenge.

For this set, I crocheted some snowflakes in different shades of 4 ply cotton yarn. I stamped a wreath (Artemio Stamps) onto the teabags, then used a snowflake brad to attach the crocheted snowflakes.

Then I simply adhered the teabags to 4x4" card blanks to make some more Christmas cards. I would like to enter my cards in That's Crafty's Winter Wonderland Challenge.

And finally, let me introduce you to Angus the guinea pig, my new craft studio buddy. On Saturday, I took pity on him at the animal rescue sanctuary where I volunteer, and decided to adopt him. He was so timid at first, but today he finally found his voice again...Squeak Piggy Squeak!

Have a creative day, and thanks for dropping by,
