Wonderful Onsies

Hi All
Well I told you I was planning on hibernating this weekend and I think that was very definitely the best choice given the snow that greeted me when I opened the curtains this morning.
Of course the kids have loved it, and have finally got to use the sledges that I bought for them about 3 years ago (how to guarantee no snow that year - buy sledges for Christmas lol)
Now those of you that are regular followers of my blog will know that I am on a bit of a mission to finish off all of the leftovers from my card making endeavours.
Of course I will have to live to be 163 to even be in with a chance of doing that, but baby steps lol.
Having made my Funky Shaped Card for the Woodware blog last week, I was left with a few practise pieces, as you do, so I decided to get them finished first.
I'm a bit OCD when it comes to getting things done I'm afraid, they have to be done in order, which is probably why the 'To Do List' just seems to get longer and longer!!
I decided that the 'Onsie' (tutorial HERE) would work just as well added to a normal shaped card, and they would be a little bit quicker to make as well.
This one continued the Christmas theme using up some background paper from my stash and some Card Candi. I used it upside down here to get the colour that I wanted.
As the colour on this one was a little paler I decided to turn it into a birthday card.
This was my first attempt at the 'Onsie' tutorial. I wasn't quite sure that I liked the rather skinny baby outfit, which is why I decided to add it to a standard card instead.
Thankfully it looks as if the snow has disappeared, for now at least.
The kids are safely indoors in the warm and we have lots of cloths drying out on the radiators. I think that I will try and catch up on a bit of commenting before I attack the next thing on the To Do List.
Happy Crafting.
