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
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;
