Nearly be time to put away all our Christmas stash won't it?  I don't know about anyone else but mine is never too far away...just in case I need some extra bling or shiny hahaha!!!

Today I thought I would show you a few Christmasy decorations that I have made.  One for myself & 1 for each daughter!

This banner I am keeping for myself as I have promised myself one for years now & finally got round to making it....and very nice it looks as well, even if I say so myself :)

Each pennant is around 6" x 10" so its pretty big & fills one wall, just as I wanted.  Its made from my fave paper this year from My Minds Eye.  There is loads of lace on it & bits of a mahoosive glitter star from a garden centre haha.  Below is the banner I made Vikki after she nagged me for mine haha....cheeky mare!  She doesn't like anything too fussy & is a very traditional girl when it come to her decorations.  So hers is red & green with gold lace.

This canvas was made for a Rosie-Dee Challenge.  I adore this deer from RiffRaff, his antlers are gorgeous.  I used the back of the canvas and after distress inking the inside spritzed it with copper Glimmer Mists.  I used paper to cover the outside & again spritzed.  The reinderr has been chalked then triple embossed & his antlers are covered in copper glitter.  Oh and he had to have a little bell....ahhhh!  Not sure where the tree was from but that has been painted, glossed & glittered too.

This next decoration was for Tamara, my step-daughter.  Its very similar to one that I did for Tando a while back. Its a piece of covered mountboard all glammed up.

Apart from my journal thats about it for Christmasy stuff from me I think.  Thanks for taking a peep, HUGS XXX
