Incy Wincy recipe

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date!! Gosh I think the cold has frozen my brain cells, well what few I have which function anyway lol.

This week over on Incy Wincy Designs we have a recipe for you to follow:
1 image
2 papers
3 flowers

We have a FAB sponsor this week too, Meljen's Designs who is generously offering the winner 4 digi images!

The DT were each given a digi to work with and I chose this gorgeous flower, it is one of those images which is so verstile, I think it would look fab making backing paper with it.

Papers are MME, flowers from stash, stamps are Tim Holtz and flower coloured in using Promarkers.

Day 21 Christmas Countdown at CCW Advent Calendar

I can't believe we are already on day 21 of our Christmas Countdown over on Creative Craft World The Blog. That means in only 10 days time it will be December, now that's a scary thought!!

It is my turn today to provide the project and I have made this advent tree, the little hanging cones have sweets inside, yummy - and yes of course I had to sample them and they are rather delicious!! The advent tree was super easy and cheap to make and is great for using up all those odd scraps of papers, I even recycled some old wallpaper samples for some of the cones. I have made a quick tutorial here.

The twigs are from a very bare looking shrub in my garden! I am entering this into the following challenges:

Sir Stampalot - Christmas Traditions, you can't get more traditional than an advent calendar!

Let's ink it up! - Recycling - just about eveerything on here is recycled (apart from the sweets lol)

Something Completely Different - Numbers!

Make sure you join us again tomorrow as it will definitely make you smile!
