Ooops.....almost forgot!

Oh dear I almost forgot to post this today!  This is my second post today, to see my Crafty Sentiments post please scroll down if you would like to.

Today sees the mid-way reminder for A Little Bit Crafty Challenge of Shabby Chic.  Here is my card:


I have used an acylic stamp from Marianne called Vintage Christmas, it comes with the sentiment too.  I actually got my sewing machine out for this one too.  Papers are First Edition Silent Night.  The image was stamped with Memento London Fog and I used a Marianne die at the top and bottom of the image, inking it whilst in the die.  The sentiment has been cut out with a SB Labels 4 die.  I have use Shabby Blue Frantage.  Other dies are Marianne for the trees, holly, snowflake, circular doily and deer and Tim Holtz tattered poinsettia.  I frantaged the snowflake and brad in the centre of the poinsettia.  The lace and pearls are from my stash.

Here is another view:



We have three sponsor's for this challenge: Crafty Sentiments, Octopode Factory and Hobbycutz.  Please see the challenge for details.
