Christmas Is Comming with Rhedd and Rosie

Hi All

the new challenge from Rhedd and Rosie is "Christmas is coming" click on to enter, a nice easy one as we are all making Christmas cards I'm sure, there is a great prize for the winner too.  We were sponsored by Craft Shapes Torbay and they sent us some great wooden shapes to play with!  This is what I did with mine :)

This time there are a few rules, but they are very easy to follow!

Requirements for this challenge.......
Your entry must have 2 or more items from the list below,either as embellishments or the main feature/centre piece (a small token piece in the corner of the card will not count)

Please choose from this list...Christmas Tree. Baubles. Christmas Stocking, Angel, Reindeer, Gift. Star.

I used flowersoft on the cuff of the boot for extra dimension and a few die cuts.

This box was so sparkly that I thought it looked best on a plain background.  The two smaller ones were other ideas :)

Lavinia Stamps November Challenge £40 of vouchers to be won!!

Bright Hot Colours is the new theme at the Lavinia Stamps Challenge this month.

This was a real challenge for me as I tend to go for more muted tones - I made a tag and a card.  My son's girlfriend pinched the tag which was nice :)

 In the second one I've used the new zentangle range of stamps, which are my new favourites :) I have used a load of metallic colours in her hair but didn't manage to pick them up to much in the photo.

Love Melissa xx
