City Crafter Home for the Holidays



Good morning friends
A new challenge at  City Crafter begins today and Cheryl is hosting for us this week... 
The challenge she has set for us is to either
make a card with a 'Home' on or make a Home Decor project
I chose to go with the Home Decor and took my inspiration from Here ... though mine is not a favor box just a decoration ...


I used the cardboard from a kitchen roll for the log ... used TH distress stains to paint the ends first then covered it with the paper printed from the Martha Stewart site


Decorating it was easy .. using bits of Christmas decorations and a tiny little robin with a little nest... then lots of Diamond Dust for the 'snow' ... even his nest feathers are frosted ... awww!


and for the end of the log ... I took some crepe paper ... painted that with inks and stuffed it into each end of  the roll ... so simple!

So now it's your turn to "Wow" us with your creations ... 
We have a wonderful Guest Designer this week ... sweet Rebekah Faries who makes the most beautiful vintage cards ...  her blog is well worth a visit ...
And our generous sponsor this week is my lovely Dutch buddy ... Stella ... you won't want to miss the chance to win the gift on offer this week!
So now all you have to do is go visit the blog ... check out the projects, the fabulous prize and get crafting...

See you there!

Ros when I first saw this I truly thought you had decorated a real log and then I read further and realized its paper! What an incredible reproduction Ros! It's absolutley beautiful and I was going to say if it is real I would have a hard time burning the log because this is too beautiful to part the decorations from! I love that you will have this for years to display without worry of natural elements. Just in awe of your talent. Great distressing to make this look like a real log. Way to create Ros!
