Bella in the snow

Good Morning!
Happy Christmas Eve, which we all know is our favourite day!
Pyjama day for us, last minute wrapping and I'm going to do some baking and Muppet Christmas Carol is on tv!

 So here is my last post before the Big day...Bella the elephant in the snow.

These Wild Rose Studio panels have been brilliant this year!

I mounted the panel onto Red card.
I stamped and embossed lots of mini stars onto plain dark blue paper for my background.
 Silver card, silver brads and some silver tinsel along with some glitter give the shine and sparkle.
Thin red sparkly ribbon just along the centre.

 Close up of my embossed stars and tinsel...

 Just a couple of challenges...

Winter Wonderland...Wish upon a star
My time to craft...Animals in the snow

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Will look forward to catching up with you all soon..

Snow White...

Good Evening folks...
How are the Christmas preparations coming along? 
I think I am just about on top of the present shopping...however the card making...mmmm!
The papertake weekly challenge this week is Snow White. 
Cupcake craft challenge is Merry Christmas.
Crafty Boots Christmas.

 I used this lovely Wild Rose Studio panel of Annabelle decorating her tree in the snow...The background paper is also WRS from Annabelles christmas paper pack and has delicate white snowflakes on it.

I used my snowflake punch is two different ways...
first to punch some white snowflakes. I then added white sequins, clear mini gems and glitter then I dotted them around the image...

 Then I used the punch around the edge of the snow paper before layering onto bottle green card.

White lace tied with gingham ribbon and a red rose sewn in...

The days are being filled up now with lots of Christmas festivities...

We've just had a lovely weekend away in Oxford with old college friends, mostly eating and drinking but we went ice skating on Sunday which was very funny!

 My youngest sang with the school choir at the Carol Service on Monday night.The paths up to the church were lit with tealights and the church looked so lovely.

School Christmas Production tomorrow night and more visiting friends this weekend. 
Christmas dinner at school next Tuesday and Christmas party all day on Thursday!

I hope you come back and visit me soon...lots more cards and chat to share!

Wish upon a star...

Well Hello again...
Thanks for coming by...
A Nativity card today using this adorable stamp from Wild Rose Studio...
How cute is this?

 I really enjoyed colouring this image in...

 I kept it simple...

The blue backing paper is also Wild Rose Studio.

 The large Gold Star is a Sizzix die and I used a punch for the small ones.

 I'm entering this card into a couple of challlenges...
