SSC#26 & C4E

Lots of shopping done yesterday, off to collect some more today! Most of the important stuff has been ordered, I love the Internet, no cold, rain, no cross people pushing and shoving...bliss!!! lol. I still have to go in to town but just for the little bits.
This card doubles up for...
Sketch Saturday....fab sketch this week, I think I will use this again, I will add it to the file...when I make!!!! Check out the challenge and fab DT cards HERE
C4E....My challenge is "Christmas trees" you can see the challenge HERE
No DT cards to see only mine! Unfortunately no DT yet, if you'd like to join the team please email me, I could do with a little help as the C4E site is almost ready to go live!!

The Christmas tree is made from layers of folded strips of paper. I saw this in "scrapbook Inspirations issue 47. There is a gorgeous LO on page 63 by Beckie Dreyer, using this technique. I liked the effect of this, I think I might try it in lilac and pink!!

The star at the top of the tree is gold, I wanted to age it a bit so I used a nail file to sand it then inked it with brown stazon. The papers are from still haven't bought any new stash!! If I manage to stick to it I shall have to buy some new stash in the new year as a reward!!!
Time to fly...well drive...over to Argos to get the reserved gifts, might pop into Matalan and Asda too, pick up the Turkey!!
Thanks for stopping by

    I so hear you on the internet shopping. When the shops began filling in October with all the crimble stuff people began the shoving & falling out. I hate it but I do try to brave an expedition into town on Christmas Eve for last minute presents to soak up the atmosphere.
