This house believes!!

So, December and new lockdown tiers have arrived, good and bad in equal measure I think!!

I have more christmas cheer for you today by way of a little sign that I made. 

Today heralds the start of the new challenge at


 and we would love to see your projects inspired by your favourite Christmas film. I have lots that I watch time and time again but top of the list has to be Miracle on 34th Street, any of the versions actually but I love the part in the most recent one where the "bad" people share their well hidden "I believe" badges!! 
Now we definitely believe in the Wills household so I made this...



..."no doubt about it, he's real!!"

It's not a great picture, so I apologise for that, dull days and artificial lighting do not make for brilliant photos do they?! 

I dusted off a piece of MDF and covered it with some suitably festive snowflake paper. Now something brilliant happened this week, Jules mentioned her Craft Artist programme on a post and I was reminded how much I loved using it on my old desktop computer which died well over a year ago. I knew I still had the installation disk which I assumed would not be compatible with Windows 10 so imagine my utter elation when I discovered that IT WORKS!!!! Martin could not quite understand why I was jumping about beside myself with joy, but that's men for you!! Anyway, the point of this unnecessary rambling is to say that I was able to easily type, colour and shadow text, print it out, fussy cut it and layer it onto the covered board!! Phew!! Many die cuts were  sprayed with shimmer spray and randomly stuck on, together with a bit of bling and glamour dust was sprinkled everywhere. Trust me, it's incredibly sparkly!!

Keep well everyone xx

A super project Sarah, I'm so pleased you managed to get Craft Artist to work - men never quite understand us do they! I love the text and pretty die cut details.

What a super sign, I agree the light has been awful for photography! Just got back from taking the bin out to the end of the drive, 1/4mile in the wet and up hill. Managed to get Al to pull the bin whilst I walked the dog! Wasn't really full but its best to keep up with the collections as you never know when you might have to miss one. Keep safe. :)
