Hello there, can you believe its December 1st already? I definitely must be getting old as time seems to be whizzing by. Its time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time our theme has been chosen by my lovely DT sister Terry who wants us to get in the 'holiday spirit'. That doesn't have to be Christmas though, so there's lots of scope. As always we've got a great prize from our lovely sponsor Leo at Flonzcraft so ink up those stamps to be in with a chance to join us.
I've made a Christmas card using one of the gorgeous stamps from the Flonzcraft 'Christmas Songs' set which you can find here (a right bargain as you get about 10 stamps for less than £4!), I've added some colour with Graph'It markers and added some glitter to the snow on the tree. I've distressed the edges with antique linen DI and matted on some kraft card. The gorgeous bp is from Craftwork cards, as are the die cut snowflakes and matching candi which have a touch of platinum stickles here and there for a bit of sparkle. The ribbon and lace are from The Ribbon Girl and to finish off i've added a couple of buttons and some twine.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A Creative Romance: vintage style
Addicted to stamps and more: holidays
Challenges and Candies: shabby chic
Craftitude: button up
Craft Room Challenge: vintage Christmas
Creative moments: vintage
Dream it up: holiday celebrations
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
Sorry I'm not around visiting much at the min, work continues to be a huge headache and to add to the chaos my son is working 12 hour shifts so I'm trying to finish decorating the hall which is a total nightmare, hopefully its nearly finished (in my very own Mrs Bodger style lol) so I'll have a bit more time before long
Thanks for popping by
