Day 16


Day 16 and we are sponsored by



I did a bit of up-cycling for today's inspiration.

I bought this in our local pound shop. I removed the sad little bow and the snowman and added a Teddy Bo image. He is coloured with promarkers. I made some snowflakes using a marianne die and added gems. I punched some leaves and filled in the gaps and topped it off with a gorgeous red and gold bow. I used this gorgeous wired ribbon from Crafty Ribbons which you can find here.

I would like to enter this into
Crimbo Crackers - something wooden
ABC Christmas - fav punch or die (my ms leaf die is so versatile)
Incy Wincy - Christmas with snowflakes
Crafting for all Seasons - green and red and sparkle
Charisma Cardz - Christmas makes
Milk Coffee challenge - holiday decorations
Sparkles Monthly - anything goes
PanPastel UK - Christmas time


Now that I see this wreath on screen I realise it says Merry Xmas which I don't like at all so I will be fixing that!!

Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you get time to pop over to the
and enter your name for the draw.

This is also my project for the Christmas Club girls. clare chose anything but square! Not exactly a card but that's about as close as its going to get today lol.
