With love at Christmas - mwah x

The new challenge over at Stampin' for the weekend is 
Feeling festive
Yep we want to see your Christmas creations :)

I made a card using my SU christmas ornament stamp and the matching die.
I stamped and die cut 4 of the largest ornaments and folded each in half then stuck them together back to back to make a 3D ornament which I layered onto an oval then a spellbinders label. I also created a hanging loop with wrapped wire.

The lovely studded border is from an old websters pages kit - I love it so much I haven't wanted to use it !!! I added a dark red chiffon ribbon and bow with a button, gem and a sentiment.

Don't forget to check out the stampin' for the weekend blog to see all the fantastic DT inspiration and get all the details of the challenge.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Crafty calendar - All things Christmas
Stamping sensations - Christmas
The corrosive challenge - Happy holidays
4 crafty chicks - Anything goes

Thanks for visiting today xx

Its time for a brand spanking new challenge over at Jellypark and this time around we want to see your thanks or thanksgiving projects.

Let me say, before I go on, that I am so very thankful for my fellow Jellypark teamies who offer friendship and support to each other while sharing our love of crafting 
X Mwah ! thanks girls :)

For my DT project I created a tag to pop in with some faux flowers that I am giving as a gift to a lovely friend.

Here's a closer look

I have used 2 jellypark images here the tag itself can be found here and the sweet flower image (which is so very versatile) can be found here at the jellypark store.

I coloured my images with pro-markers and prisma pencils and softened the background with chalk before adding stickles and white gel pen highlights.

I hope you'll join in with us - I'm sure you agree we have so much to be thankful for even, if just, the amazing craft community we are all part of x
