Christmas Release

Good morning! This is my first post of two today!

We are continuing to preview the wonderful Christmas release stamps by  Crafty Sentiments.  To celebrate we are using the new stamps on Anything But A Card.  I decided that I would decorate this:

I think it cost about 20p!  Here is what I made:

I have used the new Ho Ho Ho from Crafty Sentiments from the brand new releases.  He has been coloured with Copics with plenty of Stickles and Liquid Pearls added!  Cut and matted with Spellbinders Labels One using Gold mirri card to mat.  The papers are MME "Merry" and Papermill Direct cardstock.  The bells are made with a CC Designs dies and the snowflakes are made using Spellbinders  Snowflake Pendants.  I used Cheery Lynn Tiny Expandable Borders for the borders - love this die its so useful!  The letters are from my stash I have had years made by EK Success and the ribbons are all from my stash.

On the Crafty Sentiments Inspiration blog they will be giving away a 2 month GDT spot so go over there to see the amazing projects the rest of the DT have done!

Challenges I would love to enter:

Crafting When We Can - Christmas in July
Robyn's Fetish - Anything But A Card
The Squirrel and The Fox - Christmas in July

I will be back soon with my post for Lexis.  Take care hugs Susan xx

This is a terrific idea and I love how you decorated the front cover. Thanks for joining us at The Squirrel and The Fox.

Susan another great idea, even the children could help do these, a visit to a big Tesco I can see. Our one is just the basics that are sold in it. Ribbon on problem in fact a good way to use up the bits that's in my ribbon cut off jar.

I can see me being busy.
