This Butterfly is a Penny Black stamp that is just so useful!

 Just had to add glitter to her hat and the snow...

Bella's presents...

Good Morning all...
It's been another fast half term!
Finally got some serious Christmas Crafting under way. I have been dipping in and out with one card here and there but yesterday I got a grand total of 7 new cards done...That's brilliant for me!
I found some off cuts of lace and some ribbon and really wanted to use them up.
I have been using the new Christmas panels from Wild Rose Studio...

The paper is WRS as well so co-ordinates beautifully.

 I added heart and star brads...and red gingham ribbon which I love using and will be in most of my cards this year.

 Lots of glitter and this lovely sequin ribbon. 
I'm very lucky to have worked in a haberdashery shop and when I go in to visit, I always end up in the off cuts bin which is literally a huge metal's like Christmas!!

Some challenges...
ABC Christmas...V for Vibrant colours
My mums craft shop...Bright and Bold
Crafty Ribbons...Christmas
Southern Girls...Animal Crackers
Partytime Tuesdays...Anything Goes 
Hope you like my card and that your christmas crafting is coming along!
Leave me a comment and I will come and visit you!

Festive Sparkle and Shine...

Afternoon all...
Happy November to you!
This is the first day at home this week...half term usually means visiting relatives and taking the kids out and about...
We have done some lunches out, visited cousins and aunts and uncles, cinema, a birthday party and hairdressers.
So today is chill time and eating leftover halloween cakes and sweets...

I am still working my way through the Christmas range of panels from 
Wild Rose Studio.
Here is another Vintage Annabelle image...

 I used 3 different papers from the Annabelle Christmas paper pack and used red to layer them on.

 Red gingham ribbon tied and bowed along the bottom of the image.

Bright Red Felt flowers with lime button centres.

 Lots of glitter and Red gems were added to the trees...

Some challenges...

ABC Christmas...V for Vibrant
Crafty ribbons...Christmas
Willow sketchie...Festive Sparkle and Shine

Hope you are staying warm and dry wherever you are....
Thinking of all the New Yorkers at this time.
