Country View Crafts Challenges - Christmas - Anything Goes

Eek - not long to go until the big day - not many sleeps left!

Here is my second project for the December challenge:

The papers were from a Christmas release.  I filled my shaker dome with mica - I thought it was softer than fake snow or sequins.  I die cut pine leaves from a Tim Holtz Sizzix set and used an Ideology metal token.

I really enjoyed how this card turned out.

Do pop over to the blog to see the inspiration and to join in with the challenge - you never know, you might be the successful winner.

Thanks for joining me today.

And if this is your last visit to my blog before the Festive Season I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas.

Winter Wonderland

 Good evening,

This fortnightly theme over at the PaperArtsy blog is 'icy'.  This evening I am sharing a project using the wonderful Kay Carley stamps to create a winter wonderland.

Pop over to the PaperArtsy blog to see how I created this project and to see how pretty it looks lit up.

Happy crafting!

Country View Crafts Challenges - Anything Goes

 Happy December.

Today's challenge is the last of the year over at Country View Crafts.  Being the festive season the theme is Christmas - anything goes.

Here is my first project

I wanted to create a very simple make to show that handmade doesn't always mean that a project has to take a long time to create.  

I always make my own tags for presents but do not have much time at the moment, and so these are perfect.

I die cut tags from Kraft card stock.  I stamped the snowman and sentiment from Seasonal Scribbles. The images were roughly coloured using pencils.  

I finished the tags with twine.

So there you have it - easy peasy!

Pop over to the Challenge blog and join in with this month's challenge.  Don't forget that all entrants will be in the draw to win a voucher to spend in the online shop.

Look forward to seeing your festive projects.

Thanks for joining me.
