Ooh La La Challenge Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Challenge #67


I cant believe there are only 40 Days left until Christmas
I purchased this cracker template last week designed by the talented Suzanne from the JS Forum and made this cracker yesterday for our challenge
The paper comes from our Christmas Presence Cd and Rudolph from the Decoupage sheet from Quick Makes for Xmas which I printed on acetate, now I just have another 9 to go

The Christmas cake has been baked and just needs feeding over the next couple of weeks before icing, I even got round to buying a few xmas pressies so at the moment I am well ahead of myself but for how long time will tell

I am also entering this for the challenge over at
We have some fabulous creations over at Ooh la la so if you would like to join in click here
We would love to see what you come up with this week

BIRDS OF A FEATHER


Flock together
This is for our challenge this week CREATE A SCENE Challenge 45
I was a bit stumped to start with, then an idea suddenly emerged when I thought about Anne saying about all the snow the UK had been getting. I am working on a new cd and this beautiful water colour comes from the new cd, I have no bird stamps so I have drawn/traced them on, I did not want to draw straight onto the image just incase, so I have used acetate and layered it over the top
I hope you like it
