Happy 1st December everyone, I am so excited that here we are ready to count down to Christmas day, my very favourite time of the year. Are you ready?
Don't worry if you're not. Every year we think there is not enough time and every year it all come together. It's obviously time today for a new challenge over at Country View, our last of 2021. The theme is as always "Christmas" so you can share anything Christmas related but please remember that you can enter a maximum of 5 times and into a maximum of 10 challenges including ours.
As always there is a fab £20 voucher up for grabs for one lucky randomly selected winner to spend on the website. You can find all the details of the challenge and more examples made by my talented teamies here.
For my first Christmas make I just had to use my awesome Tim Holtz snarky cats. This card uses the Christmas set. I smile every time I look at these stamps. I like to call this stamp Billy as it tells the adventures of my own sweet cat.
This is what I got up to; I used Tim's reinkers on watercolour card; black soot, frayed burlap, antique linen, stormy sky and salvaged patina for a very dramatic night sky background.
Then it was time to put everything together.
So Billy managed to climb up into the starry sky and choose his very own Christmas star. Whilst there of course he had to say hello to his old friend The Man in the moon. Here is my finished card.
