Babys First Christmas
A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge
It was my turn to choose the theme on A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge this week, I plumped for Babys/Pre-schooler Christmas Card. The lovely and generous Nikki from Bunny Zoes Crafts is sponsoring the challenge and is offering a fabulous New Anya Stamp. My Fellow DT Members have created some stunning cards, so I hope you will check them out and join in our challenge.
What a good excuse (if an excuse was needed) to use one of Janets fabulous stamps from Pink Gem Designs. The Eagle eyed amongst you will notice that I haven't stamped the image perfectly, this is not to do with Janets stamps which are fabulous quality, but the fact that I had packed my new stazon ink ready for the courier to pick up and take to the Craftaganza. I was left with an almost dry ink pad (so sorry). I have coloured the image with Distress Inks and used lots of Glamour Dust. The embossing was done with the New Cuttlebug Holly Folder.
The little white border at the bottom was punched with Martha Stewart Village Border Punch twice, once in Mauve and once in White, I have attached them together leaving a small mauve border, the again added Glamour Dust. The snowflakes were cut with a Sizzix snowflake die.
Well I am all packed and ready for my break, Mum has a full time carer coming for the 5 days and I am just looking forward to relaxing and have an overload of crafting with friends I haven't seen for a year. I have sheduled my DT cards for the week so hope it all works and you have something to look at for the next few days.
See you Monday
Thanks for looking
