A new theme Red, Gold and Green

Wow you really loved the no patterned papers theme last week - some truly stunning entires too!

This week we are staying with a gentler theme and have some colours for you to work with Red, Gold and Green. My teamies have come up with some fab projects this week! Here's my take on it.

Its a chipboard bauble that Ive decorated then added ribbon so I can wear it like a necklace! In 2 weeks time I am heading off to Claxby again for another Craft retreat - These weekend jaunts have become my annual holiday the last couple of years and I just love them! This time at Claxby the theme is Christmas and we are having a pajama day but with a twist we have to decorate out PJs to be christmassy so this is my first bit of decoration.
The green papers are by Brenda Pinnock, The cute cat is a stamp from High Hopes and wait for it i have actually used peel offs for the Santas little helper bit! Those who know me will now need picking up off the floor in shock as Im def not a lover of peel offs but hey it seemed to work at the time LOL. The edges I have done using a glue stick then putting embossing powder on and heating. I love the un even texture it has produced.
hop on over to Tuesday Taggers and check out the rest of the DTs work for more inspiration.
Today im off to the local craft shop for a day with fabulous people - I plan to make a matchbox advent calendar so i may have it to show tomorrow - watch this space!
