Christmas / New Year

Good morning everyone, 
thanks for popping in today. 
I had a lovely morning on Wednesday , catching up with the lovely ladies from Hazel Grove.
Then yesterday I went to work with Karl, as he had quite a few hospitals and laboratories to visit to drop of Christmas cards and Chocolates. 
He did treat me to a Costa , which was rather nice. 

Today it is another new Challenge over at the 
Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.

Our theme is 
Christmas / Winter 

Here is my inspiration 

Unfortunately this will be the last Challenge as in January the F&F Challenge will be closing. 
This is really sad for me as I have been on the dt for many years now , and 
I was invited to join by Sazzle who created the Challenge blog. 

I stared my design with Billy Brayer..,well it is Christmas , 
Followed by some water splats. 

Then I did some stamping 

and created the wreath, 

I added some blending around the edges of the design, plus a moon 
and some hills. 
The deer is made from MDf , once he was in place, 
I added some splats of gesso. 

Then it was time to play with embellishments, 
I do love this part...

You can see the other dt inspiration here. 

Here is an alternative design, 
I have had such fun with these fabulous little Lavinia Stamps. 

I hope your Christmas preparations are going well, 
We have a busy weekend planned with lots of catching up with friends and family. 

Have a lovely weekend 
Much Love and hugs 
Jo. xxxx

  4. Yay! I'm back...naughty computer! This is a lovely Christmas design, the deer is cute. I have been busy getting cards finished and now my craft room is looking rather messy and glittery after a slight accident with the pot not having its lid on...not sure who didn't screw it on properly! XX
