Jingle all the way....

Hi everyone

Well here we are 3 days to go, hope all your Christmas preparations are on track.  

Yesterday my ktichen table and benches looked like a disaster zone, flour everywhere, packets of this and that and dishes piled high.  By the end of the day I have made the fruit mince for my pies, 2 types of fudge for Christmas gifting and homemade pizza for last nights dinner.  Round two starts today, nougat and Christmas Cakes.

Today I would like to share with you my Christmas Cards made for 2016.

These have been on a production line for a while now and am pleased to say they are finished and ready for posting, albeit a little bit late.

I have used the following items which are available via Bizzy Becs Online Store:

Blue Butterfly Digi Stamps - Little Santa Collection - Little Santa With Present
The Following via pre orders
Memory Box Die - Country Landscape
Memory Box Stencil - Tiny Snowflakes
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads - Weathered Wood & Tumbled Glass

These items are from my own stash:
Tim Holtz  Thinlits - Holiday Words Script
Tombow pens
Stickles - Diamond
Liquitex - Soft Modeling Paste
Aleenes - True Snow
Glossy Accents

The santa was printed out onto watercolour paper, coloured with Tombows and then fussy cut.  The background is also on watercolour paper with soft modelling paste through the stencil and the sky was using a smoosh technique, followed by stickles onto the snowflakes.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.

Until next time, Happy Crafting

Noel .......

Hi everyone, 3 weeks to go ... can you believe it,  this year has flown.

Today I would like to share with you my very first Christmas card for this year.  Yes I am a bit behind but I hope to add this one over the next week or so.

For my card I have used a gorgeous stamp from Darkroom Door - Brushed Christmas Vol 2, it is the largest ornament in the set and I thought it would make a great Christmas Tree, so upside down it went.  Have to say I am very happy with the way it turned out.  

The snowflake embellishment is a die from Memory Box - Shimmering Snowflakes.

Darkroom Door and Memory Box are available as a preorder by Bizzy Becs online store, together with lots of other goodies.  Supersavers on back on until 5th January 2016 and there are some gorgeous things is Bizzy Becs Choice.

Today is also the start of our new Anything Goes Challenge for December, so get crafty and come on over and join us.

Thanks for dropping by, have a wonderful day.
