Ye Olde Christmas

Hi everyone!

I just realised, only 5 more DT cards to make before Christmas! It really is coming fast now, have to switch over from making Christmas cards to actually writing and mailing them now. We still need to take the tree down from the attic and make the house Crimbo-proof, I need to buy all the presents, I still need to think what to serve for Christmas dinner short, I am not prepared!

Anyway, thankfully I am prepared for this week's Fab 'n Funky Challenge. Lovely Anne-Marie has set the challenge of making a Vintage Christmas project. Oh, I love vintage, but I find it bloody hard work to make it work! Perhaps I like being too neat and tidy. Here's my vintage attempt:

* Floppy Latte Santa Sleigh Silhouette, coloured with Spectrum Noirs and Vintage Photo Distress Ink
* Dovecraft Noel, Basic Grey Jovial & Marianne Design Old-Fashioned Christmas DPs
* MS Presents Border punch
* Sakura Stardus Silver Glitter Gel pen
* Red & Green Ink
* Pearls, black squares & peel off sentiment from stash

Our sponsor this week are Crimson Cloud & Floppy Latte, come and join the fun @ Fab 'n Funky!

* QKR Stampede (Holiday Cheer)
