Christmas is coming….
Its Saturday so that means its
Totally Gorjuss Challenge and the challenge this week is Christmas Tradition, I love Christmas and always since I was little loved making decorations for the house, for me and many people putting up the decorations is a tradition, We're sponsored by Crafters Companion The winner will receive £10 to spend in their online store… Great prize,
So when I saw the Marianne designs die cuts arrive in our order I just knew I needed to make this decoration… the last few years I have had snowflakes that I made with my son when he was 7 years old… he is now 14 and I think they are a little tatty so this year I have started making some new ones…
Here is the first one

Cut 6 distressed with a hint of vintage photo and then folded in ½’s glue each to the last and keep adding until full, allowed to dry add stickles and again allow to dry.. then with head pins and some beads I made 4 dangles with one being a little more ornate as this in the centre one some jute to hang it from and that’s it.
Something a little different,
Challenges I would like to play along with are:
Wags 'n Whiskers Stamps – Christmas Themed
Daring Cardmakers – Bejewelled
Fashionista Friday - Try something new - not made on of these

decorations with a die before.
Inspire Me Fridays - Always anything goes

Happy Saturday friends oh and Visitors xx
