Stamptacular Sunday Challenge & Winter Wonderland

Hi everyone, hope you are all well :O) I dont have much to report, wooo what a thunderstorm we had it late yesterday afternoon, early evening, Niall jumped into marts arms, and the kittys pooped themselves! lol, they were so scared and got lots of huggies. It only came to my attention that I said I would create a raffle prize for the church fayre next week for some cards so I am trying to beaver away and get some done.

Its time for another Stamptacular Sunday Challenge :O) this week we have a theme of "Party Animal"I used this gorgeous Froggie that the Lovely Lorraine sent me, and coloured him with promarkers, I mounted him onto some nesties. The paper is Cosmo Cricket and the sentiment Rubbernecker.

Thanks for looking, I am looking forward to seeing your creations this week :O) be sure to check out my fellow DT buddies gorgeous creations, they rock!!! each and every week :O)

*************************************************************************

It is also time for another Winter Wonderland Challenge, and as its the last Sunday in the month its project time and this week its "Christmas Crackers" believe me when I say this thing drove me crackers!!!!Lol I moaned from start to finish when I was doing it, this is my second attempt, my first was pants! but after looking at it everyday for the last how long I actually think I may make some more haha. I used the middle of a kitchen roll to make my cracker, and I cut it into three pieces from the top of my head I think it was 4.5cm, 12cm then 4.5cm. So the two smaller pieces would be the handles if you like at each end that people would pull. I think my cracker is a bit more for decorative purposes rather than pulling as the tube is sturdy and I used some card to cover it over so that would take some pulling. I was thinking instead of adding the cracker joke inside I may add a christmas carol. I havent filled this yet just stuffed tissue paper in both ends lol.I used this Baby Jesus from the Penny Black stamp below, I mounted him with 3d foam to the two nesties, and coloured using promarkers.I decorated both ends of my cracker with some star ribbon and some gems, the decorative paper I used is by papermania. The other things I added were some letters from sizzix ducky wucky and I added a little sizzix tag as I thought as it was homemade it could be personalised too. The ribbon is some I found in my box.

Thanks for looking, I really hope you come and join us this week, my fellow DT buddies have made some crackin" creations haha so be sure to take a peek.

Thanks for stopping by today :O) sorry for the length of this.xxx
