Good morning Peeps, the first Sunday of the month which means time for our November challenges at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations where the themes at both just happen to be Christmas related. Two prizes at both, at WLS a collection of Christmas papers, stamps and embellishments and at the other two Christmas themed stamps kindly donated by a regular entrant.
I'm going to be MIA for part of this week, going into hospital for a spinal procedure, re-scheduled from a couple of weeks ago when they cancelled it as I had a tooth infection and on antibiotics, most annoying as I had planned around those dates, but c'est la vie.
It seems both my DT pieces are based on a wreath style, I only realised when I uploaded to write this post, but I do so love a floral/leafy wreath so enjoyed making both of them.
The top one was created with elements from AALL and Create Pinecone, Foliage, Papaver Poppies, Robin and Nuthatch and Seasons, Versafine Clair inks, some twigs from the garden and little bell embellishments and matching envie.
This one is all Lavinia, various stamps and Versafine Clair to create the circle, Pan Pastel to create the sky and ground the Stag and again a matching envie.
I do hope you will join us this month, I am sure there is lots of Christmas card making going on right now.
And as always it seems a little belatedly, the card I sent to Dee in Kenya as part of the October Card Chain Challenge, I have one on the way from Mia in Greece but we all know what the postal system is like recently don't we! The photo is a little blurry as I can't find my original photo so had to lift this from the CCC blog, but the card is all Lavinia following the months colour palette plus Fantasy.
Have a lovely Sunday.
