Good morning bloggers! HAPPY NEW YEAR! And it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge . As always, it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge as long as it's Christmas related, with the optional theme this week of "Feature a creature".

UPCYCLED AND OLD

 


Good morning bloggers! HAPPY NEW YEAR! And it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge . As always, it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge as long as it's Christmas related, with the optional theme this week of "Upcycle or use something old".

I have upcycled a card I received last year. I love this post box, especially as it has MC on it. Some may think that stands for Merry Christmas, I know it's really for my son as they ar ehis initials! Lol. I've cut some strips from snowflake paper and applied my topper with 3d foam pads. It is straighter than it looks in the pic, honest!

Looking forward to seeing your makes.

It's a new month so it's new challenge time at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge . As always, it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge but you must use some patterned paper or card. Time to use up your stash!

I have a made a card for my bestest neighbour....it's her birthday early in January. I have used my favourite butterfly lady die, together with heart and butterfly dies. I've cut all the pieces from beautiful cornflower print paper. It's so pretty!

Here's to a happy and healthy 2022. Can't get any worse can it?!
Looking forward to seeing your makes.

LATE MERRY CHRISTMAS


 

Good afternoon bloggers! It's Sunday and I'm so late with this post! So sorry, Hazel!

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge . As always, it's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge as long as it's Christmas related, with the optional theme this week of "Use the word MERRY".

The winner is picked randomly each week and Hazel is willing to post the prize anywhere in the world! This week's prize is this:

Mix & Max
"Floral Elegance"
6" x 6" paper pack

I have a basic Christmas tree die and cut five pieces in coordinating papers, stuck them onto a base card, trimmed the overhang, and added a Merry Christmas" sentiment.

I've just finished all my Christmas baking. I've made Christmas Cornish Fairings, Chocolate Chip Shortbread, Ginger Shortbread and a huge Bailey's Cheesecake. 
I've just got a few cards to right and presents to wrap, then I'm done! Got a full week at work but I love this time of year, it's so busy but it's fun!

Looking forward to seeing your makes.
Hugs
