Snow Angel & Top Mouse ... Yay!!

Not only have I had to order a new printer ... but my camera seems to be playing up now and my pictures are not so good .. Still I wanted to play along at the Shabby Tea Room challenge and I know I am cutting it fine ... the challenge finishes tonight ... 
The challenge is to "case" one of the DT cards ... I chose to "case" Debbie's ... you can see her card Here ... I loved the bear idea so decided to try and keep all the elements Deb used but with a different theme ... mine is a Snow Angel ... 



 ... a snowflake on his 'wand' ( this cute pin was a gift June)... I got the star in, the button and twine, a heart and even a heart halo ... I used this pretty piece of lace in place of Deb's crochet piece ...


The little bear is from Meljen and I paper pieced him and drew the wings onto some card - cut out and glittered. I just wish the pictures were better ... it's a lovely blue is reality and so very sparkly.

Before I finish I would like to say Thank You to ...WaltzingMouse for making me Top Mouse this week ... I am really honoured ....

Till soon


Ikea Christmas

Well Happy Halloween to you all ... I hope you have fun!
Hubby and I went off to Ikea a couple of days ago ... after the workmen had left ... we were able to grab a meal and just stroll around for a while leaving behind the total disarray at home... I came across these cute little reindeer tree ornaments .... 



 I was thinking 'Christmas cards' at the time ... and something I could whip up pretty quickly (ha! it took me hours) ...  I think they were about £1.99 but ... as they are made out of rather thick chipboard ... I discovered that with a little bit of wiggling and gentle tugging ... I could actually split each one into 3 ... This meant that I had 2 patterned (from the front and back) and one plain ... here's what I came up with 


The patterned side with a little bit of stamping ....


Just frosted his antlers a bit too ...
Then the plain one I glittered twice ....


Luscious MME paper from the Signature Christmas range ... 


Because this reindeer was not smooth ... after applying the glitter it ended up with a furry look which was an added bonus ... So what do you think? 

Till soon
Ros
