Gingerbread Treehouse


On Saturday i went to see Matthew Bourne's Production of 'Sleeping Beauty', whilst the Alan and H went to Brick 2015 (Lego exhibition) at the Docklands and we all had a fabby day. I was supposed to go and see H's school production last night, but unfortunately i was unable to make it, as i had to go to the dentist, as a filling had fallen out and because they gave me an injection, which made me feel wobbly and tonights show is full.

This is my last Christmas creation for 2015, this tag nearly didn't happen, as i tried to make it about 4 times (thanks goodness i have lots of snippet white card !!) and i wanted to use this cute image : Penny Black - 'Gingerbread Treehouse / 918F / 1996', so i decided to make a tag (but it will probably be turned into a card), the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Winter Wonders / 30-087 / 2011', embossed with : WOW - 'Silver Embossing Powder', the snowflakes are : free from Quick Cards and embossed with : Stampendous - Crystal Embossing Powder, I've distressed it with: Tim Holtz - 'Weathered Wood And Iced Spruce', the ribbon is from : The Ribbon Girls

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Stempelgarten  - where Challenge No: 44 is 'Christmas Time'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Tag It'

Stamping Sensations - where December's Challenge is 'Anything Goes With A Stamp And Ribbon'

A very pretty creation Sam, the soft cool colours work perfectly and the little hints of red really make it all pop.

Sam, sorry I haven't been around, it is that time of the year and I am behind (on everything). Love the tag. Sorry you had to miss the school show, but there will be others. Merry Christmas to you and yours, and here's hoping the New Year brings good health and happiness.

Really pretty tag Sam - I love the soft and gentle look - and the PB image is a new on on me! Love it!

Sorry to hear you missed the school show - I've lost count of how many things have had to be cancelled these last few weeks. But, next time round you'll enjoy it all the more :)

Sorry I'm late commenting - playing catch up here!
