Christmas at Sweet Stampin' ~ Fa la la la la la la la la

Hey there lovely crafty pals. Tonight is quite the night for posts from me! I have a London bus situation, as it's 3 in a row!!! We have a new challenge kicking off at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' today, so I'm sharing another Christmas creation with you in the hopes it gets you in the Christmas crafting mood.


I've used the cutest little Christmas caroler for my creation tonight from a Penny Black stamp set. This wee hedgie is in full swing, singing Christmas carols, so I thought I'd use this inspiration in my design and surround him with sentiments that reflected Christmas carols. Lili of the Valley had a wonderful clear sentiment set that was perfect for this creation and comes in these fun wavy shapes. So it was so easy to finish up this design with a bit of plaid paper and those caroling sentiments. The image was coloured a while back with my Promarkers and I've done this on kraft card. I've added white gel pen where I wanted the white to be brighter. I layered the wee circle of kraft over a white felt doily to finish the design. Very CAS, but sweet I think for a quick Christmas make.


I hope you'll come and join us this month at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' for our 'Anything Christmas Goes' challenge. We aim to inspire you to get ahead with your Christmas crafting, so come and check out what the rest of the super talented DT have done for their creations and do come and join us with your own Christmas creations this month. 


I'll be back again very soon, as I have three DT posts going live tonight, so do come on back to see my Whimsy Stamps creation later on. Hugs and happy crafting, Wends xoxo
