Christmas???!!! in JUNE??!!!

This week over on Daring Card Makers it was the talented Jo Kill's turn to set the weekly dare, and to be honest I think the crafting has sent her mad cos this is what she said....

Jo here this week with a seasonal dare - just not this season :) I would love this week for you all to make a Christmas card... (yes I know it is only June tee hee) With a nice Christmassy scene just to get us all in the festive spirit and to pave the way for all the cards that we have yet to make....

right, hmm, well Jo honey two words for you... ITS JUNE!!!!!!!!!

I thought I would try something new for my dare this week. I found a carrier bag of bits I brought at a craft show somewhere and there were two pots of flowersoft and a lampost topper. It was really simple really just dab on glue where you want then sprinkle the flower soft stuff over top. I also added a bit of glitter on the snowy bits to add a bit of sparkle. I then inked the edges, mounted the image on brown bazzill, and stuck to a small tall card and tied a piece of brown satin ribbon down the side.

And as this was such a quick make I managed to get started on a project I am really looking forward to doing, and for once its not a paper crafts one.... more on that as it progresses.

Oooh I also made my neice Lilia a little tutu, no reason, just wanted to see if I could. As she lives 4 hours away I had to make do with monkey modelling it, altho J did want to put it on and be a princess.. maybe i will make him one too.

Dont forget to head on over to daring card makers to see the designs from the rest of the team. Why not join in too?
