The delish paper is My Mind's Eye 'Lost and Found Christmas' and was part of the Candy that I won in the Ladybug Crafts Ink Blog Hop. Sue also included this gorgeous gold ribbon and also some Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Chipped Sapphire'. Thanks Sue! - it really was yummy candy.
You might be able to see better on this photo. I've distressed the edges and gone all round with gold stickle. So it's all sparkly in real life. Also there is Star Dust stickle on the tree to look like frosted snow, but doesn't show up!! The wooden snowflake and tree are from Handy Hippo. The snowflake has been dusted with 'Wild Honey'. Pearls are from Stash. Sentiment is a Peel Off stuck on some card.
I've cut Tilda out to create a 3D effect. The Distress Ink background is one that I did when I was laid up with bad back. I got some practice in ;-) It's Tim Holtz 'Wild Honey' and 'Chipped Sapphire'. I used Liquid Pearls - Silver to create the snow.
I have been SO busy this weekend! I had to parcel up my camera ready to send for repair. I used a whole roll of bubble wrap!! Just hope that they can actually find my camera in amongst all that plastic !!! Quite a bit of paperwork had to be scanned and sent.
My Christmas Tree fell to pieces last year as I was packing it away. It was a bit big and a pain to put up and decorate. So I've ordered a tiny little one - 2ft !!! Wanted a 3ft one but they all sold out in the ones that I liked. It's fibre optic - so hope it's a nice one!!
So poor Robbie did go in Strictly! He has done well, considering. I can't imagine who will go next week!! Holly and Jason were my favourites this week. Then Harry. I wasn't keen on Chelsee's Jive!!! and everybody shouts me down when I say it !!! LOL Alex has improved so much, thought she would be out weeks ago. But I think maybe she should go next? Oh I don't know - I might change my mind next week! I'm so fickle hee hee.
If you are still with me after waffling .....
