Fairy Holly


On Saturday i was invited to a 2nd hand Craft Sale, that was organised by Zoe Pierson in Crawley, i met my Glitter Pot buddy there - Louise and she introduced me to Cary Buckham, Natalie O'Shea (and Louise has persuaded me to go to Cary and Natalie's classes), Zoe Pierson and finally it was lovely to meet up again with Kim Fee (i have done a few of her classes in the past), anyway i only spent £33 and got all this :

I've wanted to use this image for a while, but i couldn't find a suitable layout - now i have, the stamp is : Penny Black - 'Fairy Holly', the papers are : LOTV - 'Snow Princess', distressed the circle : Tim Holtz - 'Milled Lavender', the sentiment is (it's first outing out too) - Whimsy Stamps - 'Holiday Mini Postage Stamps', the bell border is : Whiff Of Joy - 'Bell Festoon Die', that has been embossed with - WOW - 'Metallic Silver Embossing Powder', i've glamour dusted the die and image, the ribbon is from - The Ribbon Girls.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Crafting Musketeers - where Challenge No: 30 is 'Christmas With Ribbon'

Winter Wonderland  - where the Challenge is 'Jingle Bells' - there are bells on the image and the bell die too

Crafting By Design - where the Challenge is 'Getting Ready For Christmas'

Crafty Friends - where Challenge No: 17 is 'Your Favourite Colour' - For me, it's Purple either on it's own or with another colour

As You Like It  - where the Challenge is 'Brights Or Pastels - Favourite And Why ?' - Mine is Pastels, as Brights scare me

Scrappy Mo's October Rudolph  - where you have to make a Christmas card from 25th - 31st 

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Hi Sam, you are most welcome to show your son's cubs the tree idea, and you can use straws to the same effect if it's any easier for them. I go to a club every monday and we are always brainstorming ideas. Thanks for visiting, Everything I share on my blog is for sharing xxx
