Christmas Decorations

Morning again I hope you all survived Christmas Day. What a wonderful time we had in our house. We had a house full with the kids and my parents, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I hope you all have a little time for crafting again as today at CRAFT challenge we have a 'no card' challenge.

The sponsors for this challenge are:

 Here's my DT project that I've made using Stamps and dies from Stampin Up. You can find my SU only blog here. For my CRAFT DT project I made an ornament in browns, a little different than the more traditional red and green ones I've made previosuly.
 

Here is Liams DT project. He's made a Christmas angel. He's so proud of it bless him. 


I hope everyone enjoys the new year celebrations and I'll be back in 2013.

Happy Christmas



Morning all, it's CRAFT challenge time again. This week you can see we have a sketch. I've used the sketch as the basis for a last minute Christmas card

The sponsors of this challenge are: 

I've used a stamp from one of our sponsors: Flonz.

  
For my card I've used glitter paper from a paper pad. The stamped image is coloured in with Promarkers and I've added some 'snow' to the image using a SU (Stampin Up) CRAFT white ink pad. I've used some ribbon and snowflakes from Doodlebug and a sentiment from SU.

Hope you like it. I've since added some hearts and 'best husband' to the front of it and it's now my hubbys Christmas card from me.

Don't forget to check out the rest of DT designs based on the sketch here.

Happy Stamping and have a wonderful Christmas.
