Well it’s another wonderful wet day here on the “wet coast” of B.C. (can you hear the sarcasm? lol) Summer just seemed to pass by way too fast for me….and did we even have a fall this year? Sure doesn’t seem like it. And now here we are onto the Christmas season. As usual these days I seem to be just squeaking in under the wire on some of my challenges, and this one is no exception. Angela, from Crafting with Jack, had an absolutely wonderful Christmas challenge…and for this challenge she gave away the most awesome image. But don’t take my word, see for yourself.
Isn’t this image just incredible? You can find this one and all of her other fabulous images here. I was so excited to be able to get it and enter in on the challenge, so I decided that I needed to do something special for this image. I did a double twisted easel card…I haven’t done one of these for a long time and I’ve always loved the look of them. The cs I used is from Stampin Up and the dp is scraps from my stash. I’m not positive, but I think it was by Recollections, but don’t quote me on that lol. I coloured the candles and leaves with my Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and oms. The candle holder was coloured with my Gold Gelly Roll pen and the berries on my holly was coloured with my Red Gelly Roll Glitter pen. I coloured the flames with my Gold glitter gel pen. I just love the effect of it all.
The sentiments that I used are from Pattie’s Creations Christmas Sentiment Set, the rhinestones are from a package I got from our local dollar store and the flat backed pearls are from Recollections. I punched the corners with a corner punch from Making Memories.
Now although you can’t join in on this challenge because it’s already over, I would encourage you to check out her challenge blog because she has another great challenge happening now and another wonderful freebie to use for it! How great is that? I hope to see you all over there…and maybe leave a word or two for her incredible design team.
Thanks for visiting me…..
