Happy Holidays !

Good morning lovely followers and thank you for popping in today.

I do hope that your week has gone well, all I can say is that I am so looking forward to Karl coming home on Saturday and then having Sunday off work....

Today we have a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge blog....

Our theme is .........Happy Holidays! .....

And is hosted by my lovely friend Theresa.....

And sponsored by Sherri Baldy designs, My Besties and Sweet Lilac Flowers.

This challenge will run for four weeks, so that gives you plenty of time to enter.....do pop over and see the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT....

Here is what I came up with....

I started with a piece of stencil card and the oval aperture stencil, oh and my two favourite Adirondack ink colours.

Next came this wonderful bauble stamp...( one of my most favourite stamps of all times )

And then one of my new stamps....this lovely little cat....

I just added some shadow under him with my charcoal pencils.

Some matting and layering and ribbon.

Followed by those gorgeous Sweet Lilac Flowers, with a few berries from my stash.

I added a little Christmas bell, which caused some perplexing looks from Tess as she was trying to find out where the noise was coming from...

Notice how unbalanced the design looks...

There , that's better....

I do like to use diagonal lines on my designs.....

Here is a closer look at the flowers....how would you like to win some....???

Well if you enter our challenge you could....

Right I had better love you and leave you as I am actually typing this at 11pm Thursday so that it is ready to go Friday morning...

Better get some sleep....

Have a lovely weekend , I am off to Edgeley for our monthly workshop on Saturday , then Paul Church is on Hochanda on Sunday...

Thanks for visiting.....and call back soon...

Hugs...

Jo. Xxxxx
