Time for Christmas

Good morning and Happy Monday!! I'm back from my weekend with my son and family in London - the new baby has still to arrive lol!!

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and the theme this week is ...... mmm I wonder if you can guess???  Yep that's right its CHRISTMAS!!! You have two weeks to make your creation around the theme of Christmas - I can see we are going to have plenty of entries for this one.  Here is what I have made:

I have used Lexi's Bauble Spiral Christmas tree digital stamp, which is available to purchase here from Fairydust Crafts. I coloured the tree with Copics and added some Liquid Pearls to the baubles.  I cut the image out and matted it using Spellbinders. I have added some Stickles all around the edge of the image.  The paper, tag and ribbon are all Papermania "Home for Christmas".  The border is made with a MS punch and I have embossed the white card with a snowflakes EF.  The wooden star is from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is:

My Heart Pieces have a wonderful selection of digital stamps and have freebies every Monday.

Please pop over to Lexi's Creations to see what my fabulous team mates have designed for some further inspiration.

That's all from me for today. Have to catch up on housework, gym and grocery shopping - groan! Not much  crafty time today unfortunately! See you soon, thanks for looking and take care xx
