Good morning everyone, we have a very miserable start to the day up here in the North. It is grey, ugly, damp & we have mist off the sea, the weather is just down-right poop!!! Hope its better where-ever you are.
Right its Saturday once again so you know what that means don't you.....
yayyyyyy.....altho it also means another week closer to crimbo arrrgggghhhhhhh.
This week over at CES the lovely talented Kaylou has chosen the theme, which this week is...
CREATE A TAG
Thats right as long as it has a tag on or is a tag, basically as long as we can see a tag then please enter it lol. Just think of all those crimbo pressies that you will be doing or more birthdays that are maybe coming up.
Mine this week I have done for my daughter, we are getting her an Ipod Touch for crimbo cus we are getting her 1 of those TV's with an Ipod dock in as well. It is soooo hard to buy for Natalie the only thing she can play with is rattles but she does love watching TV & like her mummy she loves music, but Natalie loves absolutely any kind....& I mean ANY.
Now this week we are honoured to have the fabby Pollycraft sponsoring us so the winner will receive 5 digi images of their choice....how fab is that.....
Pollycraft were kind enough to let the DT have a play with an image.
This is Lilybean Snowfairies 'Clover Snowclouds' I love these images sooo much that yesterday afternoon I ended up going over & buying the set lol. I also brought some sentiments from them as well...
I will put a list of items used & their links at the bottom of the post to make things easier....
This is Roundabouts Christmas Sentiments & I printed it out twice so I could cut out 'Christmas Wishes' to layer it up a bit, 3D it lol. I made it into a card type thing......
I stamped a Cats Life Press stamp onto card, this is ' A Day To Remember Calender' which I think is just fab because it can be used all year round. When I cut it out I cut a little tab out on the side so I could attach it to the pollycraft sentiment.....what do you think.....
These are my handmade snowflakes.
Right onto the ingredients......
Papers are My Minds Eye-'Holly Jolly' 12x12 which are available at Crafty Emma's Store. The image was coloured with Promarkers which you can also get from Emma's, also the gorgeous Poinsettia's.
The snowflakes were punched out with a Woodware punch & then covered with Diamond Dust from the Hobbyhouse & I then popped a Prima gem on top from my stash.
I popped my papers into my sewing machine which my fabby hubby fixed for me. All the papers were edged with 'Brushed Cordroy' distress ink. The ribbon & buckle are from my stash & parts os the image I added some stickles to various bits. Its sooo hard to capture the sparkle on camera, well for a novice like me it is & I use the super macro setting all the time, I will be doing something wrong no doubt lol.
Well I think thats it from me pop yourself over to CES Challenges to check out the wonderful DT's creations, they are stunning!!!!
Well hopefully I will see you later with something else providing my Mojo agrees with me, its kinda gone a bit AWOL this week so I have been struggling.....but I will fight it all the way lol.
Thank you sooo much for your fab fab FAB comments, you are all wonderful & big hugs to each & every 1 of you.
Bye-D-Bye for now
