Hello my crafty friends. How are you doing today? Have you started decorating the house yet? I'm slowly gathering my Christmas decorations, but will start decorating the apartment next weekend. I can't wait! My favourite season is just around the corner. :)
last weekend my sweetie and I went on a trip to a city about one hour driving away from our place. We've never been there before so it was fun to do some exploring. We did some walking around, but also some shopping. I managed to get a few more Christmas gifts. I feel so organized getting them so early, because usually I'm leaving this to the very last moment.
So, since everything is about Christmas and December, let me show you a Christmas card as well.
A new challenge started at the Subar Bowl blog and as usually the theme is anything goes. The only requirement is that you use a Sugar Nellie stamp. And they have sooooo many cute ones that I am sure this won't be a problem. ;)
I've used the super cute snowmen stamp. Love, love, love them! Unfortunately this stamp is sold out, BUT you can get these cuties as toppers. How awesome is that?!
I did the colouring with distress inks and I added some diamond stickles on the white parts of the hat. The papers have been in my stash for what seems like forever (I can't even remember where I got them!!) and I'm really happy I finally put them to some use. All of the embellishments came from my stash as well. All around the paper edges I added golden glitter glue. I got the idea for this at Alberto's blog.
I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Stamp and create: Ribbons and/or bows
Bunny Zoe's crafts: Snow
Scrapy land: Add texture + use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells (among others I used Whimsy and Spellbinders dies)
Card and scrap: Christmas card
A creative romance: Something old (papers are veeeeery old and so are the sequins and doily)
Creative fingers: Anything goes
Sweet stampin' Christmas: Snow people
