Second Post

A very quick second posting today ... 
I'm just scraping in with my very last entry for Jingle Belles Rock - our 48th card! 
Candy Kisses is the prompt ... I apologise for the poor quality photos ... it's night time here

I'm afraid this little chipboard candy canes is all I had for this pompt

A big ThankYou to Lauren and Stef who started this challenge and have worked hard all year so that those of us who joined in would have 48 Christmas cards done before 1st December!
You Gals Rock!

Till soon

Winter Wreath

I haven't entered any challenges in such a while ... but seeing the new challenge over at one of my favourite challenge blogs
 ... and this gorgeous photo 

Well I had to join in ... The challenge is to use neutral colours white / cream ... glitter and silver ... and I adore neutrals ... not to mention glitter 

I bought a plain white wicker heart for £3 a while ago with the intention of decorating it for Christmas and this was the perfect chance ... Sorry I forgot to photograph the heart beforehand so I'll show you a photo of the reverse which is just the same 

I made a whole bunch of flowers ... from paper, fabric and card and grabbed lots of trinkets I had around and this is the finished version

It's been so difficult to photograph so there are a lot of pictures in the hope you an see the glitter and the little trinkets too 

There are glittered and plain silver baubles ... pretty pieces of glass

I made lots of paper roses using sheet music and glittered every one

The snowflake and bell is a Christmas ornament covered in glitter and it sparkles beautifully

Icicles made from earrings

... hand sewn fabric flowers mixed with rolled cardstock flowers

I am really pleased with how this turned out and it looks so pretty hanging on the door
A lovely challenge ... right up my street

Have yourselves a wonderful day - Thanks for stopping by
