A 'Wee' Christmas Wall Hanging at The Hobby House

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Well I can't believe we are just about at the end of the first week of the school holidays - (Jack's school had inset days on Monday and Tuesday of this week) - but as always where there is a negative there is also a positive and that means we are just over two weeks away from our jolly holibobs.
I'm so looking forward to this holiday - I have always wanted to stay in a villa with our own private pool - so we are and we are taking one of Jack's friends so everyone should be happy :o)

Anyway enough of that the real reason I'm here is to share another Festive make with you as we are celebrating


over at


Last year I had a fabulous day out a LOTV and we made a gorgeous wall hanging. So I decided to make another using my favourite (of the moment) Nordic Christmas DP's and an uber cute Wee Stamps pre-coloured topper.
I think they make a fabulous keepsake:

Ingredients used:
Image: Wee Stamps Pre-Coloured Die Cut Topper 'Christmas Berry'
Design Papers: First Edition 'Nordic Christmas'
Embellishments from: The Nordic Christmas Kit
Pearl String
Kraft Card
Bazzill Cardstock
Marianne Createables Poinsettia Die - die cut using Velvet Paper - so scrummy!!!
Wooden Dowel
Wired String

I spent a wonderful day yesterday with my snuggalicious Grand-daughter Ruby Mae whilst her Mummy was Wedding Dress shopping - but that was not too successful - still not found 'the one'
So hopefully I'll have the joy of playing with Ruby Mae another day whilst Rowie and her Mum go Wedding Dress hunting again :o)

Well the sun is shining and the garden is calling so this is what I have planned for most of the day:

 Thanks for calling in to see me today and for all your continued support.
Have a fabulous day whatever you have planned.
