Sauce jar into vase

Happy New Year from Rhedd's Creative Spirit and for my first project of 2016 I altered a sauce jar into a shabby chic vase.  I used muslin as the background and lace from my wedding dress.  A small cotton doily as the backdrop for a cabochon from a broken necklace.

I am blessed to have been chosen to be a guest designer and to take part in this fab challenge.  For this I had put together an advent calendar box.  I used Tim Holtz matchbox die, Christmas papers, holly berry embellishments for the pulley handles.  For the top I used random glittery Christmas decos and a tip of a Christmas tree branch.







Thank you for popping in and why not head on over to Crafting by Designs and join in with the fun.  I did and I was chosen - it  could be you this time.

Hugz to all and Happy New Year to you all

Happy New Year *

and here is one of my Christmas decorations.  I know Christmas is over but felt it would be a waste not to share with you.  It is time for the first challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit in 2016.

I altered 3 hearts and strung them together.  I covered them in prety papers and decorated with altered tacky christmas decorations with dabs of white paint from our local pound shop, added some ribbon bows on each heart.  Here is the result................






That's it for now and why not head on over to RCS and join in with the fun challenge of Anything Goes as long as it is altered/mixed media.

Hugz and love to all and wishing you all the best for 2016

Another Christmas card.....

Yes I am sharing yet another simple card.  I used backing paper from a paper pad I had laying around and for the life of me cannot remember which one it is.  If I do I will update this post.  I used white card for matting and used a Martha Stewart snowflake corner punch - I used the snowflakes from the punch randomly at the top of the card.  I had cut away some of the front of the base card and used the same paper inside on the right to show when the card is stood up.

Thanks for dropping in and have a wonderful Christmas all of you

Another Christmas card

I have recently posted a few cards using this stamp (which by the way I absolutely adore).  I remembered I needed one more for a friend I am meeting up with tomorrow for lunch so up to my room I went lol.  Instead of using flower soft for the snow I used stickles for which I think is equally effective.  Truth be known I couldn find the flower soft in amongst the bomb site of a craft room lol.

Thank you for popping in and hope to see you all soon

Hugz always
