Has Christmas come early??? hehe

Yes...it will be on us before we know it.  I see that there are already Christmas decs & cards in the shops & its still only August!!!!!!  I have been delving into my Christmas box...I really must have a proper look through instead of a rummage hahaha!  Using a 5x7 canvas again...(yes I did buy a cheapy load...try The Works my lovelies) and made a hanger for the office downstairs. 

The background was painted with Eco Paint and then I stuck some Christmas music paper on top before toning it all down with gesso.  I overstamped with some pretty snowflake stamps & embossed with silver.  The wording is another wonderful piece of chippie by Tando Creative...you can find the stockists ~HERE~.  One place that I know sells the whole range are BUBBLYFUNK if that helps! 

I have painted the letters with red matchpot from a DIY store....the only decent red I had hahahaha!  Then it was covered with crackle accents.  The poinsetta flowers are lovely & were a freebie from a lovely friend.

Just want to say that I had a fabulous time at Ally Pally & met up with some really lovely friends & met some blogging buddies...how fab is that???  I didn't buy a lot tbh but here is a pic anyway...



I also bought a sissix die for favour boxes....going to save me so much time next year!  Oh and see that gorgeous pink spray?????  While playing on Monday I managed to spray one leg hahahahaha!!!!

Thank you for taking a looksee today, HUGS & Christmas stuff XXXXXXX

Hey sweetie, I know I'm late getting here, but I know I'm not two months late. It's October, but I think you were in September when you thought you were in August (grin).

I see you made it to Ally Pally. I saw some of the shots from some of my other UK friends and it was madness! So, now are you trying to alter your leg, too? Tee hee.
