Sweet Ride ,,,,,, :-)

Hi all :-)  I hope you’re all having a nice breather in between Christmas and the New Year and re-charging your batteries ready for more festivities :-)

While you’re relaxing you might like to join us over on the Crafty Ribbons Challenge,,,Gina chose a fabulous theme ,,,


so why you might ask did I do red and green ?? oohh well ,,, lets just say I had a senior moment ,,, lol :-)

If you join in you could win this fab pack of flower ribbons from the Crafty Ribbons Store.

I have just bought this brand new., oh sooo cute, House Mouse stamp of the month for December ,,, ‘Sweet Ride’ ,,, isn’t it ADORABLE !! :-) and I just couldn’t wait to ink it up :-)

I coloured with Copics and as the stamp is quite big I kept the details simple. I used Basic GreyAspen Frost’ papers and Bazzill Peppermint for layering. I used some gorgeous Sheer Puff Dots ribbon and a Christmas Button Gift Tag , from the Crafty Ribbon Store. The sentiment is made to go with the image and I stamped and heat embossed this with Black Sparkle powder.

Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some gorgeous cards so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them :-)

 My parents are here with us and we had a lovely day and we also got in touch with most of my family on Skype ,, which was fab ! :-)

This week is a little different, we had a little secret Santa gift swap among the DT, we made each other a gift and bought some crafty goodies to pop in the parcel too and we are showing you what we made for each other :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

It was lovely to wake up on Christmas morning and have a crafty parcel to open, we did a similar thing on the Wild Rose Studio DT too so I had lots of crafty pressies to play with. Thank you so much Mandy and Dulcie :-) xx

I made this notebook  and a small post it-note holder for Jo and bought some crafty bits and bobs :-)

First of all I covered some mountboard with Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage paper and masked and inked using lots of distress inks and sprayed with Studio Calico Shine.  I will link all the products I used at the bottom of this post :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have all made fabulous creations and to see what the lovely Mandy made for me and what the rest of the team made for each other you will need to pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
