Merry Christmas Sign

Hi there,
I have my last (I think) Christmas project to share with you today :-)
I purchased a plain Merry Christmas wall plaque and figured it could do with some SU! love before I gifted it...
I used plenty of Glimmer paper in Champagne and Red and swapped out the original ribbon for Cherry Cobbler seam binding..
 the leaves were made using the bird punch and I added sparkly little hearts (using the owl punch) and stars
 I even added little rhinestone "baubles" to the trees :-)
 and the bottom corner was decorated using the (retired) star punch, I sure do miss this punch!
OK, that's me done for today.
I'm off round the block with the dog and the chidlings now 'cause the forest is just too wet to walk in after all the rain we have had here!
Thanks for stopping by today,

Merry Christmas Belles and this years Christmas Day table :-)

Merry Christmas to you all, I hope you had a fab day with your nearest and dearest yesterday (and perhaps today too?). We had a lovely time with the Fam, chilling and plenty of eating, lol!
So, today I have the little gifts I made for my team to share with you today, these were wrapped in the "Pretty Packages" I shared with you HERE.
Now before I share them with you I have to give credit to my dear friend and fellow Jem, Kate Martin, she gifted me one of these at convention and I loved them so much I knew I wanted to make some myself, thanks Kate!
So, here are mine. I added my brooches to Deco Labels decorated with a blue and gold punched owl...
 all together :-)
 and a close up of the brooch part. 
I think they all got there gifts in time and hopefully they liked them? I have mine on my coat so I'm sure they will use theirs too :-)
 Now, I promised I would share my Christmas day table with you the other day, so here we go...
(the red on the cracker so didn't go with my theme but Zack wanted crackers this year ;-))
 left of the centre section.. I loved this little sledge as soon as I saw it ;-)
 the centre is a vintage style lemonade box filled with candles and curios, edged with a gorgeous laser cut Christmas place mat I cut in half and taped along each side,
 and to the right of the centre... 
look at my lovely little candle holders from my friend and downline Angela, thanks so much Angela, they looked stunning lit later in the day too xxx
Right, that's all for today!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your Christmas holidays with your nearest and dearest :-))))

Merry Christmas with Double O Holy Night Card Sharing :-)

Happy Christmas eve to you!!!!
I am sharing a double hit of Christmas card goodness today before prepping for tomorrows lunch hopefully with a bit of help (or hinderance) from the family?
So, I have a couple of cards I made a while back using O Holy Night in a traditional red (cherry cobbler) and green (old olive) colourway.
This first one uses the image twice and has highlights using the spotlight technique...
 White craft ink and Smoky Slate make the subtle background with all the images stamped onto Crumb Cake card. 1+1/4" and 1+3/8" circle punches make the highlight.
(all links at the end of this post)
 and a side view showing the layers :-)
 and here's the second card using a trio of the same image, this time I highlighted each sentiment using markers and a background created using Versamark
 and I popped some of the images up to highlight too :-)
OK, that's all from me for today.
I just want to take this chance to wish all my blog readers, customers, team and friends a 
Very Merry Christmas.
Thanks for your continued support this year and I look forward to sharing lots more with you over the next 12 months too :-)))))

Pretty Packages all tied up with String ;-)

Happy Christmas eve, eve, eve! How are all your preparations coming along? Well, I hope? We were going to go out and face the food shop today but as the weather outside is frightful {;-)} we have left it and are going to get some more decs up this afternoon instead! The festering music is a blaring here and getting us all in the spirit!
But first I have some pretty packaging to share with you. I'll have to save showing you what's inside until after the big day though I'm afraid!
I started with Chevron Tag-a-Bags, folded and tied up with Island Indigo Bakers twine...
(all links will be at the end of this post) 
 I stamped the Be Merry tag in Midnight Muse, die cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelits and inked around the edges using a sponge and some Smoky Slate ink
And I finished them all with a few punched shapes made with the Merry Minis punches and some Champagne Glimmer Paper
 and finally a totally un-related to SU! note, I have even  managed to wrap all my table presents (instead of crackers) already :-)))))
*Jingle Bells seem to be the theme this year for me...
 I'll pop a little picture on here of the finished table Christmas Day for you too if you like?
Right, more decorating needs to be done before work.
Thanks for visiting today, I know how busy everyone is right now and I'm very grateful that you are here!
Stampin' Hugs from me for today,
