Holly Jolly Christmas

Hello everyone how are you all?

I've been missing in action as I've been quite ill lately & havnt felt like crafting & even forgot to blog DT cards or even other stuff I've had made a while.
Gonna try have a crafty night tonight though ;-)

So I'm finally showing you my DT card for Deep Ocean Challenges which this fortnight is....
GOODBYE SUMMER can interpret this as you wish, whatever says goodbye summer to you. To me its 2 things, 1 the stunning colours of Autumn & 2 Christmas my favourite time of year (jointly with summer lol).
 So I've gone with Christmas :-)
Photo's taken on my phone again sorry, though I did take these a week or so ago & have since brought a new light thingy-ma-jig.........I'm so good with words lol.
I have used one of my Top 10 favourite Magnolia stamps. She is called 'Divine Tilda' from the Waiting For Christmas collection & you can buy her from Swedish House Crafts right here.
She was coloured with distress ink refills & I forgot to ground her so she looks like she is floating in the I cheated & added the sentiment just under her feet....she has something to stand on now lol.

The poinsettia I made myself using a poinsettia die, white foamiran,oil pastels & pearls for the centre.
The leaf underneath is a scrapiniec chipboard. Lace is from my stash.

The gorgeous papers are Maja Design 'I Wish' collection, which is probably my favourite collection, definitely my favourite christmas papers. I have used a Go-Kreate die to cut it out & machine stitched all around as always. I've also decorated inside to compliment the front as always.

The dies at the top coming down form the pearl trim are Magnolia dies 'Peaky Floral Tabs' which you can get from Swedish House Crafts. The christmas ornament at the bottom right is also a Magnolia die.

I think thats it from me, its took me ages do this post as my laptop is not behaving so hubster is gonna fix it tomorrow before it goes on the end of my size 11 I'm not size 11 I'm only a 5 but my youngest son is size 11 so I will borrow 1 of his boots just to make sure I give it the right boost lol.

I'm off to Ben & Megans as its family day, hubby was out this morning for father & sons time & now we are all off to theirs so even the dogs can play togther for the afternoon. Our Poppy runs up & down their stairs lots as we dont have stairs so its like a game for her to keep going up after the kids lol. I lurve weekends :-)

Thanks for stopping by & listening to my babble.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
