Christmas Ornament

Good Morning! Well been a busy weekend with a bizarre and then taking the kids to visit the man in red! They LOVED every minuet of it and I think I can finally say I'm feeling a bit more festive.  It was lovely to see Nancy starting to understand and want to be in on it all!!! 

Any way I'm here with some more news for you,  a while ago I applied to be a DT member on the Crafty Bloggers Network - I couldn't believe it when I get an e-mail asking me to be on the team!!!  So as you can imagine I had to accept and so here I am today with my first post!!! 

Its time for the inspiration post on the CBN blog and so I have made (another) decoration for the tree - well i was suppose to give it to someone but Miss A has decided to get rather protective over it and told me it has to stay on our tree

A Christmas Anything Goes

Good morning - I know it has been very quiet here recently - too quiet I know- I am sorry but I have been busy - I firstly had some commitments that I needed to take care of and then I had to have a clear up - so anyway I know your thinking - what commitments? well I have been lucky enough to be offered a DT spot at Christmas at Sweet Stampin - I was over the moon when I received the e-mail I couldn't quite believe that I had been chosen to work with such a talented bunch of people!! 

So I really hope you will take a look around here at my creation and then pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the amazing creations from the DT.  The theme for this challenge is 

Anything Goes

and we have some wonderful sponsors 

and a set of Promarkers from Letraset

So now you have seen the grate prizes on offer let me share with you my creation for this - now I am so far behind with everything this Christmas I think with the mojo running it just did not help but suddenly it came to me to make a special gift for Miss A's teacher. 

I used one of the beautiful angels from Lili of The Valley - I have had her for a few years now and every christmas she has to make an appearance! The papers are Bazill Basics Believe stack - I have had to purchase another stack this morning as the papers are just so lovely.  My favourite has to be the kraft colour with the snowflakes! I also went round the edges with TH DI to soften the look.  I also used a few nesties on this project - normally one is my limit! 

She was coloured up with copics and then die cut with my nesties.  I added some TH DI around the endues to soften it and keep the theme going through! I also added stickles to her wings to make her sparkle.  Now I guess your wondering why I think this creation is so special?!?  Take a look at the inside. 

Yep I have made a little candle box for Miss A's Teacher.  I am somewhat impressed with it - I have to say I did take the long route with it though! plus with loosing track of time with it all it took me a lot longer than I expected.  once again the papers on the inside are from the same stack as before.  The candle box was one that I made a couple of weeks ago that I have stuck down using silicone. 

I just had to add a sentiment on the inside and so I chose one from a Personal Impressions set called 'snow is falling' I purchased a while back - I die cut it and then added more DI around the edges.  Well I hope you like my creation I would like to enter this into the following challenges;
