Xmas Wait


Yesterday we went for lunch and to see 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them', as Harrison was desperate to see it and today i'm off to do some crafting with my lovely friend Cary, who is doing some fundraising for 'Mind'. Clio managed last week to pick up a mild form of kennel cough, so is now taking anti - inflammatory's and has to do lead walks away from other dogs ;-(

Today is the start of the new Challenge at Penny Black And More and this month, it's 'Black, White And One Other Colour', as you can see i went for 'Red' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black

Marianne Designs

Crafty Ribbons

A Stamp From Me

And one lucky person using a Penny Black image will be picked to be Guest Designer for next month, so pop over to Penny Black And More  and check out the other amazing inspiration the very talented team have come up with and join in the fun - but please do remember, you can use any image you like, except Digi's.

Today's image is : Penny Black - 'Xmas Wait! / 3281H / 2005', the trim round his hat and the pom pom is covered in Glamour Dust, the papers are : Bazzill Basics Paper - 'Countdown To Christmas', the ribbon is from Matalan (it's flocked), the stocking die is : Crafts Too - 'Stocking Surprise' and i've put fun flock on the top and covered the boot in glitter, the curved border is : Spellbinders - 'A2 Curved Borders One', the penguins were cut from a die (don't which one) by a kind friend and i've just added liquid pearls for the eyes.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Crafty Ribbons  - where Challenge No: 178 is 'Christmas / must include ribbon

Christmas Cuties -where the Challenge is : 'Anything Goes, As Long As It's Cute'

Addicted To Stamps - where Challenge No: 137 is 'Christmas'

Penny Black Saturday - where the Challenge is 'Winter or Christmas'

My Time To Craft - where Challenge No: 335 is 'Christmas Animals'
