Hang about - still Christmas !

Hi there my friends.  Did you all have a fabulous week?

It's been extremely hot here and so the basement has been a great place to be. What's in the basement? My craft room of course :-)

I have been having a wonderful time there, crafting away, staying cool and playing with the newest release at Polkadoodles.

Octavia Frosted Winter Collection - overview

I have a wonderful Christmas banner to share with you today.  My only problem with this one was getting a great photo - so I have broken it down a little in photo's for your to see. (If you click on any photo's whilst visiting me - they should enlarge a little)

I used the fabulous alphabet and layered up on some cardstock.  I love the colour palette in this latest collection - it's gorgeous.

I used the wonderful gingerbread people in a jar, for the centre, layered up the image and added lots of glitter.

I also used the gingerbread couple to add to each end of the banner. 

I added glitter to the little snowflakes on the letters and to the stripes of the gingerbread people.

Then I used little teeny pegs and some sparkly white wool to finish off and hang my banner.

I wish you could see this in person - it looks so much better LOL!

Anyways, that's it for today.  My fellow teamies are also sharing some more of their makes over on Facebook - here there and everywhere.  So why not pop along and check out their creations too.

The group links are below.

Then a couple of other fabulous Facebook groups, which are

No tutorial today, but I will have another creation and tutorial for you on Monday - so stay tuned :-)
