Christmas !!


My word peeps...hope you are enjoying the lovely sunshine like we are here in Bucks, but my word it has turned chilly at night with frosts !! Brrrrrr....

Time for this months Little Claire Challenge which is

"Christmas"
 
 I've used "Owlgate" which not only has three owls, but three little super cute mice as well !! Can you spot them ??

I didn't want to do a tradional christmas card so stamped my image onto kraft card and then coloured in using promarkers. You get much softer colour tones ( apart from red ) doing this and it blends well with the card. The snow was created using a Sakura Pen-Touch white pen, the best white pen I have found !! mat and layered several times then mounted onto kraft card base. Finished off with faux stitching, ribbon with die cut snowflake and holly leaves topped with a few red jems !!
 
The prize for this months challenge is
 

Dovecraft Christmas Tree Stamp
Little Claire Swirly Flowers Stamp
Little Claire Feed the Birds Stamp Set
36 Assorted Die Cut Sentiments
Assorted Christmas Greetings Sticker Sheet
5 12 x 12 Sheets Christmas Papers
 
 What a fab bundle of Little Claire goodies !! So why not make one extra christmas card and enter !!

Would love to enter:

Creative Corner: let it snow
Crafty Ribbon: anything goes with ribbon
Crafting For All Seasons: stitching real or faux
Divas By Design: something snowy
