Hi everyone, sorry I've not been around much lately, there's been two people I know that have had some devastating news, that coupled with all of the year anniversaries for me has put me in a really down mood. I don't want to dwell on everything, but this year has been such a bad one for so many people I know, roll on 2013, hope you can make up for this one.
It's time for a new challenge at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia and this fortnight we want to see your Christmas creations.
I've coloured Tilda in with my distress markers and reinkers, I've added sparkle with glamour dust.
The papers are from It's Christmas Time 6 x 6 paper pad by Maja Design, I've distressed the edges and then machine sewn them using top stitch thread. There is also some ivory pearl lace trim and some ivory cream teeny tiny pom pom trim. The star border is a doohickey die.
The roses are from WOC, I've also used cream chrysanths and some ruby red rolled roses, there's sparkle with stickles.
I've followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday, I'm also entering this card into the 'Celebrate Christmas' at Tilda's Town, ''Tis The Season' at Simply Magnolia, 'Christmas Bingo' at MDUC (I've done the bottom line, a doohickey die, lace and painted with distress inks) and also into the 'Holiday Inspired' challenge at 7 Kids Challenge Blog, and also into 'So This Is Christmas' at Deep Ocean.
