It's all about Christmas with Crafty Calendar!

Morning crafters, just popping in to share my Dt make for the latest
challenge over at Crafty Calendar, the theme is ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS!
A nice, easy theme for you......anything crafty so long as it's Christmas related!
I made a couple of ATC's this time, starting with kraft bases I added pieces
of distressed paper that had been swooshed through some splodges of ink left
on my craft mat......lovely, messy inky fun lol! The trees are scraps of paper
rolled around a pencil & then flattened....all edges inked then layered on top of
each other til I got the tree the size I wanted. Miss Rebecca drew me 2 little
plant pots, I coloured them with Copics & once everything was in place I
added a sprinkle of frantage & the stamped words......and that's it!
Love the rustic feel to these.....I'm thinking my Christmas mantelpiece
will have a real rustic feel this year, lots of wood & frantage & a
bit of distressing too! But back to business......You have all month to
play over at Crafty Calendar & this month we're sponsored by the fab
Scribble Designs offering our winner 3 digi stamps of you choice!
As usual there's some gorgeous Dt makes for your inspiration & some 
equally gorgeous entries too.........you sure make our job difficult!

  1. Hello, Jo,
    I found your cards on Party Time Tuesdays challenge blog (your entry is the second before me) and I love it! This is an original idea I haven't seen yet before! And a great and creative way to use little pieces of paper. I also love that little old and shabby touch you gave to the edges of the base and the falling snow. Very romantic!
