Home Decor - NOEL

Good morning my lovely crafty friends and welcome to my latest new followers - thank you so much for taking the time to follow me - hope you enjoy your visits and stay a while.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The weather was somewhat strange - threatened showers and thunderstorms and then glorious sunshine all within the same day - certainly not the weather to iron outside as I did on Friday :o)

Not sure what today's weather will bring - at the moment (7:30am) it's very blustery and cloudy but with an air of brightness as well - if that's possible??!!!

The best thing to do when the weather is so unpredictable I guess is to have a little play with my crafty goodies - so that's what I did over the weekend and today I would like to share a piece of home decor I have made which will be a gift for either Jamie & Rowie or Aaron & Kerry for Christmas using an MDF piece I got from either the NEC earlier in the year or I think it could have been from Harrogate last year!!!

I started by painting the letters using a pearlised paint and then added the following die cuts:

Memory Box: Lindeman Snowflake - MCH
Precious Ornaments (with the bows snipped off) -  MCH
Spellbinders: Poinsettia
Martha Stewart: Arctic Snowflake
Gingham Ribbon and adhesive pearls from stash
A touch of Star Dust Stickles

Challenges I would like to enter:

Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Pile it On - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas in July

Have a wonderful day.
