Xmas Home Decor

Good morning.
Ooohhh I'm really getting excited now - only 2 more sleeps until the Big Man in the Red Suit puts in an appearance :o)

I have (like many others I'm sure) got a busy couple of days ahead so I have started bright and early this morning - bedding stripped and in the wash - oven cleaner doing it's magic - Christmas cake to decorate - mince pies made yesterday - tomorrow I plan to hit Sainsburys as soon as it opens at 6am - then hairdressers at 8.30am and finally Waitrose to collect Christmas dinner pre-order at 11.00am 

Hopefully by the afternoon I will get a chance to have a little crafty play time :o)

Today I would like to share a little Home Decor item with you.

I got the blank MDF 'XMAS' from the GNPE at Harrogate earlier this year.

Covered with Design Papers from Craftwork Cards 'Krafty Christmas Goody Bag'
Then I painted over the top with Pearlescent Paint 'Mother of Pearl'

A Spellbinders snowflake die cut in textured gold card with a Martha Stewart snowflake punched in Kraft card and an adhesive pearl in the centre to finish it off

And here it is on display:

I love the end result - hope you do too :o)

Challenges I would like to enter:
2 Sisters - Krafty Christmas
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - Anything Christmas Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Easy Does It

Before I go I would also just like to share a photo of Pickle-Lily Cat making herself at home amongst the decorations I had put out ready to do the dining room for Christmas Day:

She is such a cat!!!

Thanks for popping by today.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hi Debs, This is gorgeous! I bought a NOEL set to decorate but never got round to doing it. Found it yesterday while I was tidying my craft area aka dining room! Maybe next year.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

wow, that is absolutely stunning, I've passed letters like these in the shops but never bought any. Why, oh why didn't I?

And lucky you the cat only lies on the tinsel, my Saga goes absolutely ape when we bring out tinsel. I rearrange it on the tree every morning =)
