Vintage Christmas

Evening crafty friends and visitors. Hope you have had an enjoyable weekend. I've done the usual animal related pursuits, followed by the final victoria sandwich creation of the year for cricket teas ( they never tire of it apparently...praise indeed!!), Sunday roast and I even managed to grab some more crafting time!!  With such a fabulous array of challenge themes about at the moment, it was difficult to decide which to start with. But decide I did, and here's what I made...

The stamp is new by Stampdendous which I coloured with my Promarkers. The snow has been frosted with stickles, on the boughs and clear Wink of Stella on the ground (sadly the light was bad and neither showed up ). The papers are also new, they were one of the items that fell in my basket in The Range the other day. I aged the edges of the paper and card and distressed with walnut stain distress ink. The final touch was a ribbon and bow with a snowflake charm...and there you have it.

I am joining in with these challenges
