Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

At last its here, Christmas that is. I do love the build up to Christmas, shopping, works drinks and visiting family. SCD have the final challenge of the year and it is "Merry Christmas" very apt. Next year the format of SCD will change and I am looking forward to the new challenges. BUT for now here is my
"Merry Christmas"  I used DI red lipstick and bundled sage for that Christmas colour look then edged with rub on metallic red, green and gold, stamped baubles and small tree added a tando tree which I had coloured with inca gold just finished off with glitter glue. Merry Christmas XX

Its Christmas (well nearly)

Today I was Christmas shopping phew, now I love the pre Christmas manic-ness of shopping even if it is a fight to get to the checkouts LOL, that's what it is all about. I then chilled out in my craft room and did the SCD challenge this week it is "Christmas Characters" I chose an angel (mainly because this is a new stamp and I was determined to use it) and a few fairies. I used Christmas colours DI bundled sage and worn lipstick and metallic rubs red , gold & green (there must be a song there somewhere) around the edges. My little girl angel is stamped in brilliance sparkle black and I added red & green glitter glue to her dress and wings. Its a lovely tag and the photo does not do the tag justice. Last weekend I made this little hanging for my cousin (Sue) it was her birthday. I thought I would share that with you all. Enjoy the Christmas rush it will soon be here and gone again. XX Off to the bramford crop tomorrow YIPPEE.

Hope you have all been enjoying the snow this week, Tilly and me did play in it just for a while LOL well you have to don't you?. This week over at SCD the theme is TREES and as it is a new month we must use tags. I am loving the theme as I am a bit of a tree hugger. I used a brayer for the background 'creole spice' and I  deliberately used a small tag so that I could my miniature tree clarity stamps. (The diamond bought these for my birthday and I just love them) I stamped in trees and fence in black then I high lighted in white pen for depth and used London fog for the tree back stamping gave it a rock candy stickles moon and a bit of snow in the foreground. I have also included a photo of my other tree (hope you don't mind as it is not a tag), I have just made this quilted advent calender for The Diamond. Yes I know what you are thinking he is too old for all that. BUT I have filled each day with grown up chocolate and at the weekends miniature JDs that's when he decided he wasn't too old for all that LOL.XX
