Christmas Sleigh

Morning everyone,

Did you all have a good week? I broke up from school yesterday yay, so it's time to relax and look forward to Christmas. We are completely ready for Christmas apart from a bit of cleaning that needs doing. We are spending Christmas day at home with our eldest son and then the whole family are driving to Lincolnshire on Boxing day to spend a few days with my parents which I am really looking forward to.

As promised I am popping in today to share what I have made the boys this year. It took quite a bit of time as I have made them one each, but I'm quite pleased with how they have turned out. Sorry in advance, but this post is picture heavy.

The poinsettia has been placed on top of some natural fibre and I've added some snowballs, fir cones and fir branches.

The card was painted with Serene Chalky Paint and then I had a happy accident. I wanted to use Crackle paint, but picked up the wrong pot and covered the paint with stickles. So I painted the crackle paint over the top and I really like the effect, unfortunately the photo doesn't show the texture up very well. The edges have been painted with white Gesso.

The snowflakes and Reindeer dies are by Noor Design. The snowflakes have had Frantage  sprinkled over them and the Reindeer have had a little Gesso painted on them. 

I've just added some pom, pom trim here.

The sleigh is now filled with chocolates.

I hope you like it.

Well that just leaves me to wish you all a Merry Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful time and Santa brings you what you wished for.

 I would also like to say a big thank you for all your lovely comments this year, they always make my day.

Take care.
