CHRISTMAS NELLIE

"Cute".

I've gone with a cute elephant stamp this week, stamped directly on to a Kraft base card and coloured in with Prismacolour pencils. I left the tree blank on purpose because I wanted the elephant to be the star! I do love my elephants! Finished off with some doodling around the edge.
Looking forward to seeing your makes.

I've had a rummage through my Christmas box and found some trees I'd cut ages ago. I used three of these on a snippet of paper, layered on to matching card. The sentiment was a magazine freebie. Very quick make!

ROLY POLY ROBIN


Hope you are all well. 
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is
"No sentiment".
Winners are chosen at random.
I've been having a nosey on Pinterest and saw a lovely Christmas card, made with white circles, with a couple of twiggy arms, made to look like a snowman from above. Loved the idea but wanted to do something different so my fat robin was born! He's wrapped in ribbon from East of India, with a little holly embellishment.
Looking forward to seeing your makes. IT'S FEBRUARY NEXT WEEK!!!!

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Blog. Each weekly challenge is "Anything Goes as long as it's CHRISTMAS" with an OPTIONAL theme, which this week is
"Use a sentiment".
Winners are chosen at random.
I've been at my huge stash of Christmas papers and managed to cut some up (they looked so pretty, AND they were double sided!). I've glued five strips onto white card, wrapped it all with twine and stuck it onto a red base card. I've used peel offs for my sentiment and added peel-off snowflakes. 
Looking forward to seeing your makes.
