New Challenge at Creative Inspirations

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well. My trip to the NEC was quite a disappointment., there didn't seem to be that many craft stalls, certainly compared to what it was like a few years ago. 

Anyway today we begin a new challenge at Creative Inspirations and the theme is......

November Chill
This month we want to see creations with a chilly theme. Whether it is creating creations with a wintry theme, snow sports, hats and scarves or a cool colour theme, the choice is yours.

I have coloured up one of the new Christmas stamps from Dreamerland Crafts called 'When I have You Around Me' and used one of their new sentiments stamps along the top and bottom of the image. I have used DI reinkers to colour the scene. I think they both look cosy in red and green.

The papers are from The Hobby House.

The lace, ribbon, pearl string, diamante embellishment, fir cones, and most of the flowers and leaves are from the Ribbon Girl.

The snowflake is a Marianne die. I covered the snowflake in glue and sprinkled on some Twinklets which gives a lovely icy effect.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Red: Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Black Soot
Green: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters
Boots: Gathered Twigs, Black Soot
Bench: Pumice Stone, Black Soot

We have TWO prizes up for grabs:

First prize:

Is from Petal Lu and the prize is a 30% discount from the store.

Second prize:

Is from Crafty Ribbons and the prize is a selection of these ribbons:

That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.
