Twinkle town

Hello friends, hope you are well and not suffering too much with the extreme weather at the moment, be it two feet of snow or blistering heat. Here in my part of the UK it's....raining...again, and just when I thought the fields couldn't get any wetter, still each day that passes is a day nearer to spring.

Anyway, weather report over!! I am here to share another Christmas card that I made with a New Year present to myself.


The fabulous stamp set is called Twinkle Towns by Mama Elephant and although very different, for me, I had to have it.


 Coloured with Promarkers the bauble then had a liberal Stardust stickling. 


I heat embossed the bough with a glittery green embossing powder that I had long since forgotten about and added a red cord to hang the bauble from. The sentiment came from a Wplus9 set called Woodland Wreaths (Carol...this one is all your fault!!).

Apologies for the appalling photography!!

So, another Christmas card for the box and some challenges to enter too.

  2. I don't know where you find all your crafty bits Sarah, but you always seem to have great new stuff! This is a brilliant bauble! Any that lovely winter scene is perfect for my country challenge at Oohlala. Thanks for joining us! Finally, next time your online shopping, might I suggest a snorkel for Surprise, poor think must be so fed up of the wet, we had a lovely day, but I guess that's no consolation! Jx

  12. Super design Sarah, love the bough stamp.
    The sheep are beginning to get webbed feet but they have gone up to the lambing sheds so the patter of tiny hooves isn't too far away!

  13. My theory as well with Spring Sarah and like you pretty muddy paddocks.

    Great design, the little scene is pretty and the embossing carried the colours from the trees perfectly.

  18. Beautiful card Sarah. Love the bright green and all the glitter! Rain here too, nothing but rain. Not strange for some people, but where I am in Canada, it's highly unusual. Since I love snow, it's a little sad too. Stay dry! hugs :)

  23. 1)your photo looks fine on my monitor (2)love the scene in the ornament. The sparkle you've added really makes the design stand out so nicely, and I'm loving the gleam of the green bough and the red tie. Very lovely, and very well done! Hope your rain will cease, and you get some nice sunshine to go for a good ride. TFS & Hugs.
