Hi lovely peeps - have you noticed the Christmas goodies in the craft shops, and "Christmas in July" on the TV shopping channels? Well, it's Christmas in Blogland this week too, at the MAWTT Challenge.
Our lovely Shell has chosen the theme of CHRISTMAS which is great for someone like me who usually makes their Xmas cards in December - I will have at least ONE Xmas card prepared now - and here it is!
I love this fabulous Mo Manning "Christmas Fairy Holly" image, and the Christmas theme gave me the chance to use lots of glitter - yaaay. (Though it doesn't show up very well on the photo - sorry)!!
As we are still in Summer, I went for a kind of "alternative" colour scheme - hence the addition of PINK!! (Any excuse)!
Image coloured with Copics and layered onto a Nestie Lacy Square diecut. Edges of image inked with Weathered Wood DI.
Backing paper is Craft Creations - "Small White Dots on Pink" - no surprise there then!
White machine stitching.
Moss Green seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley, punched out with the SU Scallop Oval punch, edged with glitter.
Do pop over to MAWTT to see what the DT have created, and find out who last week's lucky winners are.
