Ok so you have read my header right.....yes I have exciting news. I was messaged by the lovely talented Gina to say that herself & Jay would like me to join their challenge blog over at Lovely Hanglar & Sweet Magnolia!!!

I made a pop up box with this super duper cute Snowman....I love these fella's, they are adorable.
Papers are Maja Design Home For The Holidays 6x6 pad.
The tag at the front is from the latest Magnolia doohicket club kit Volume 12, so is the heart shape as well.

I've even used snowmen paper to match my snow-dude ;-)
For some reason I had trouble photographing this ;-(

This is the back scene behind Snoowie With Star, the trees are from the club kit, the house is from here........but I just cut the front off & didnt use it 3D (love it when dies are versatile) The trees at the very back are LLLC & have been smothered with glitter. I've also added Scrapiniec Santa's Sleigh which was also smothered in glitter, I cut 2 of the reindeer's off & added them to the front.

The Mittens are from club kit volume 12 & the snowman postage stamp is from the Maja Design Home For The Holidays collection.

This super cute snowman is also from the club kit & I love this fella....he's brill & I have to say he has been used a few times already on projects yet to come lol. The tag is form the paper set.
I've used Magnolia Paris Nights die & added stickles to the top of the lamp-post. Snoowie With Star was stamped onto Fabriano paper & coloured with distress ink refills & I added glitter to his hat, star & lantern, ooh & his nose & buttons lol.

Deep Ocean CHallenge DT Card

Hello everyone how you all doing? Can you believe how fast these days are going by........not long now til the jolly red fella comes........shaking his belly like a bowful of jelly oooh so exciting :-)

So we have a new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenges & this fortnight its........
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
.....yep he's making his list, he's checking it twice, gonna find out who's naughty & nice.....are you singing along yet, altogether now......santa claus is coming to townnnnn ;-)

I made this card a couple of weeks ago for an order of 4 christmas cards but as I havnt had much time make anything else this fits our new challenge theme......

I didnt realise the charm had flipped over on the tag......but dont worry you will see it in the next photo lol.
I've used Pion Design The Night Before Christmas papers......all have been machine sewn around the edge.

See there is the charm of the lovely santa ;-) I've added Marianne Design Tree, Reindeers in kraft with white gel pen for markings & some Memory Box Mittens, also in Kraft but with a contrasting band using scraps from this paper. 

Add some gorgeous flowers, apple pomegrantes, glass strawberry & a Little Darlings Doily die underneath. There is also a banner going along the top but I've covered most of it by accident. Leaves are Tim HOltz Holiday Greens........can you tell I love those dies lol.

This is the inside with another Marianne Design Tree & Little Darlings Fancy Rectangle die.
These papers are gorgeous, love this collection!!

Gorgeous red ribbon from my stash & I added a beautiful button to the centre & underneath we have a cone & some berries. The pretty lace was from LLC a while ago.

The image is from Pion Design Night Before Christmas Images From The Past. & was also cut out using the same die as inside. The tag is also from the same Pion collection here.  The wording on the image I cut from Pion Borders sheet from the same collection.

Please pop over to see my teamies fabulous creations & show them some love. Hope you will join in with our fabby challenge this fortnight.

This fortnight we are sponsored by the lovely Tina from Craft Heaven & your prize is.....
 A €10 Gift Certificate to Craft Heaven Shop

Noor Design UK DT Post

Hello all I'm here with a christmas card today using things from Noor Design UK, I made this card a couple of weeks ago but forgot to add the flowers until last night.
The idea of the card came form a Hanglar card I saw on Pinterest a LONG LONG time ago.......many of you may have seen it. It was an oblong card but with 2 hanglar images........I took the 2 images & extended on it.
I made a tag card instead of an oblong card........all links will be at the bottom of the post.

I've used Magnolia stamps from the latest collection, this is 'Sitting Cozy Edwin' & he was coloured with distress inks & markers.
I also added a die-cut Find It Trading behind with him.........I also did the same behind Tilda below.........

......this is 'Sitting Cozy Tilda' also coloured with distress inks & markers. The banners that they are sitting on are going to have names added but I dont want the people who are having this card to see ;-)

This is the inside, of course I will add a place to write or I might add a pocket to put tags in to write on......I havnt decided.
The papers are all Maja Design 'I Wish' colection, 12x12 sheets.

The squares were cut out using Little Darlings dies & mounted onto foam tape, Edwin & Tilda were also mounted onto foam tape.........all to give dimension.

I added seam binding to the eyelet at the top & hung a charm from it with wax cord.
The flowers are WOC & the leaves are Rosy Owl which I cut from Pion paper. I also added bark stars & a loose pearl from my stash.
The Merry Christmas banner is also from the same paper collection.

Thanks for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
