It's OK, there are still 100 days to Christmas :-)

Hi everyone.  Hope you are all having a good weekend.

I am progressing well with the redecoration of Shannon's bedroom.  All the white work is now done and I am hoping to prime the walls on Monday and then hopefully by the end of the week, it will all be painted. Then all that will be left to do is make it her room once again, by adding all the little bits and pieces :-)

Anyways, I thought it was really good of me to remind you all that there are only 100 days until Christmas LOL! When I realised this, I thought wow, is that all!

Nikky has a fabulous new release at Polka Doodles, called Home for Christmas.  It is full to the brim with amazing digital images, both black/white and coloured.  A smorgasbord of coloured embellishments,  papers, shaper cards and even decoupage sheets.

*** A Home for Christmas CD Collection

I used this fabulous house image and made a shaped card with it, using my Silhouette Cameo.  

I just love this house and there are several in this new collection, along with scenes and ready to go cards. The sentiment is also from the CD, there are so many to choose from, so I added one that would fit perfectly.

I added Sakura Gelly Roll - Clear Stardust to the snowy areas of the houses and the hearts on the tree. The tree is coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers and popped up to add more dimension to the card.

The Spectrum Noir markers I used were;

Branches     CG2, DG3, JG6
Trunk          TN5, TN7
Hearts         CR11

For the inside of the card, I cut another of the same image and then in the Silhouette Design studio, was able to white out the house in front and add another sentiment, before cutting, and still leaving room to write your own message.

I am hoping to have some more fabulous examples for you over the coming weeks, this CD collection is £17.99 (approximately $30), with free shipping worldwide and with over 500 elements included in the collection, so worth every penny.

Enjoy you Sunday and thanks for stopping by everyone.

Happy crafting.
