Good morning. Who stole the sunshine :-( Oh well I guess that means more time to craft and in cool comfort too :-)
Today I would like to share a card made with one of the new Christmas stamps from LOTV that I just had to have.
I think I'm addicted to making Christmas cards - a bit like eating Pringles - once you start you just can't stop lol!!!
I took my initial inspiration for this card from the Shabby with Sparkle challenge at Cupcake Crafts this week and here's what I came up with
Here's what a used:
Image - Oh Christmas Tree - LOTV
coloured with PM's and for the Sparkle - lashings of Star Dust Stickles
Here's a close up of the image that I think has captured the sparkle
This also used:
DP's - Pink Petticoat
Ribbon - East of India
Poinsettia - Marianne Dies and adhesive pearls from stash
Martha Stewart Doily border punch
I distressed all the edges with a Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked with Old Paper to give it the Shabby Chic look.
Challenges I would like to enter:
Cupcake Crafts - Shabby Sparkle
Craft Your Passion - Christmas in July
LOTV - Sketch
Craft us Crazy -Anything Goes
Stampin B's - Use Ribbon
Crafts & Me - Ribbon
Crafty Creations - Christmas

For those that wanted to see what I purchased from Hobbycraft yesterday - you will be shocked to know that all I came away with were a few beads and bits n bobs to have a go a some 'simple' jewellery making
And when I say 'simple' I really mean simple - here's my first bracelet :-)
I think it must be a sign when you trawl Hobbycraft looking for something that you haven't got or that you really need and end up coming away with nothing - what do you think????
Anyways here's to a happy crafty day to you all.
Thanks for popping by.
