Blue and Red Birthday xx

Hello there all

Oh its been a wee while since I posted on here, you know how bust the Christmas season can get tho! I hope Santa spoiled you all and brought you some fun Crafty bits too??

I wanted to share with you a wee 50th Birthday Box I had the privilege of making 

The papers were from my stash, a bundle of 12x12 papers I got from Hey Little Magpie and the images are all stamps from Lili of the Valley coloured with Promarkers!

I really enjoyed making this, maybe because I hadn't made one a while but it was fun to spend a few days enjoy making all the elements!

Well I'm off to relax with the dog, log fire and my crochet today!

Hmmmmm Christmas??

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas???

Well we have had snow, for about 40mins in Friday we had lots of snow flurries! It didn't lie because of all rain we've had the past few days but it was SNOWING woohoo

Anyways, I've been having a wee play with Gilding Wax, ehhhh trying that is! I've seen all the amazing results you can get with it and wanted to try, so plucked up the courage to open a jar!!

Ok, be honest, what do you think??
I tried but think I was too heavy handed with it but still enjoyed having a play! Think I'll try it on black card next time

All the pieces are from Sara's Signature range Festive Wonder, the Embossing Folder that I love, Snowflake die and the sentiment too! I used Centura Pearl touch of silver, some silver card, pearls and silver cord to finish it off!

I would like to enter the following Challenges
Craft for the Craic - Something Glittery
MAWTT - My Favourite Things SNOWFLAKES
A Snowflakes Promise - Christmas/Winter Theme

Will off to dig out the black card and see what I come up with
Happy Sunday everyone
