What I've been up to

I have a few things to share today. I was at a crop on Sunday and we had been challenged to make a Christmas card with a 3D element to take along with us. Here is my card
The image is Knitted with Love by Sugar Nellie, papers are Papermania and the rosette I made by pleating a strip of paper and gluing a button on top. You can just see the sparkle on her hat and pom poms which are covered in Stickles.
I am entering my card into
Make it Monday - always anything goes
I also managed to do a couple of scrapbook layouts for Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party. My friend Jo is also doing the class so we were able to help each other with ideas. Shimelle's prompts get you to use papers in a different way and work out of your comfort zone.
This page is Prompt 5 which was a sketch and you had to mess up your papers, either by distressing or tearing them.

The next page is Prompt 4 which was to mix papers with dots and stripes. I found these long forgotten papers, it was the closest I could find to dots and stripes

I am so far behind with the prompts but am loving every minute.

Finally here is this week's page for my He-art Journal. This week you had to do a page themed around food or drink you love.....what can I say, you gotta love cake!!

Thank you for stopping by, hope you like what you see
