December Challenge

Our challenge to you for December is quite simply CHRISTMAS

I gave the design team some crocheted flowers to work with and there will be a prize for a randomly chosen winner at the end of the month of a pack of the same flowers.

Here's my page using the green and white crochet flowers. The photo's are from my son's Christmas dinner at school in 2011 !

My Christmas will be spent down under this year and I couldn't resist making this postcard.
A Christmas card
I added one of Kerry's flowers to make this purse more interesting and pretty too.
A Christmas tag.
 This tiny pot contains everything needed to make a chain mail bracelet. To make it look more like a gift I added vellum, ribbon and a crocheted flower and added a bit of sparkle too!
I hope you like my makes for this festive month.

Shell here to show you my creation for this month. I love anything Christmassy & love colouring, so when I saw this image by Inky Impressions I just had to use it!


I used the gorgeous flowers Kerry sent to make this super fun card for my niece.


Not a very traditional Christmas layout, but it is about me and my dreams and hopes for this Christmas, every year I do a Christmas daily journal so this is just starting it off ... I've used a christmas paper as a base and added lots of gold glitter embellies to make it more festive.  I have some journalling on a tag at the top ... and tried to make the lovely crochet flowers as the focal point !

For my project created an Art Tag using one of Kerry's pretty paper flowers. I added a bit of color using pigment ink and the direct to paper technique. The pink lacy flowers and the scalopped background they are sitting on are also from one of Kerry's packages. The main focal point is Edwina one of my original digital stamps. The smile phrase is also digitally created.
