Festive Home Decor

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are well and had a wonderful week and are ready for a fabulous weekend ahead.
Jack will be continuing his birthday celebrations with his friends tomorrow - a group of 'couples' are going for a meal at Nando's - no parents allowed - we will just be providing the funds and the taxi service lol!!! No more jelly and ice cream parties here then!!!

Today I have no DT makes to share with you so I thought I would take the opportunity to share one of the Festive Home Decor items I have made ready for the 4 Christmas Craft Fayres I have booked in November.

Here's what I did:

I started by painting the Anna Marie Design 'Sleigh' with Chalk Paint and then when it was dry I stamped the flourish all over using Perfect Medium and dusted with Copper Mica Powder - which is really sparkly when the light hits it - you can just about see it in the top photo in the top left corner of the sleigh :o)
I then inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and also inked the uber cute AMD Reindeers with the same DI
Raffia, pearl sprays, snowflake charm all from stash
Mini Snowballs and Pine Cone and Gold Berries - AMD
This Way for Christmas Stamp - AMD

I absolutely loved putting this together and think I will definitely need to get some more sleighs to play with :o)

I will have another Festive Make to share with you tomorrow :o)

Before I go I would just like to share some fabulous photos of my adorable Grandchildren
starting with my snuggalicious Granddaughter Ruby Mae's first 'selfie' taken on her Daddy's phone lol!!

Then my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver feeding the ducks and swans with Granddad:

And my scrummilicious Granddaughter Lola Arizona dressed up for her trip to Euro Disney to celebrate her Mummy's 30th Birthday

I know I always say it but I am truly blessed with such a beautiful family - beautiful inside and out.

Thanks for you friendship and support.
Have a wonderful day.

Your gorgeous sleigh is amazing, I knew it was one of Anna's (I will be seeing her on 4th October, must buy one of these).
