Advent




A very good morning to everyone, hope you all had a good week.

So so sorry I've been MIA most of the week, I've been right under the weather with this dreaded flu and as an added bonus it's thrown my sugar levels all over the place as infections tend to do and I've not felt up to doing much at all.

Thankfully most of this post was already scheduled to tell you about our new challenge at Allsorts which has been chosen by the lovely Jo who has selected the very fitting theme of 'Advent'.

My top card is another of the samples I made for a Stamp Addicts Create and Craft TV show. I really love working with the silhouette images, they need so little work apart from a little colour here and there which I added with Pan Pastels. 

My second share is using Christmas Winston from this weeks sponsor DigiStamp Boutique which I paper pieced using Kaiser Craft DP's and added some snow glitter here and there.


Have a lovely weekend everybody and I really hope you will be able to join in our challenges.
