A Fairy Christmas...




Good morning - now how did that happen.  Here I thought on Sunday I was having an odd (but enjoyable) lazy, relaxing day - turns out I was getting sick.  I still haven't come full circle but I am feeling much better.  I think I had gotten some sort of stomach flu/bug.  I took my first sick day off from work in seven years - I 'm a bit stubborn :)

Saturday I decorated the house for Christmas - I hope you don't mind if I post a photo:

Okay, enough dilly-dalling, on with today's DT post:

A new month brings a new challenge at Bee Crafty:  Christmas!  A perfect challenge for December, don't you think??!!

I used two of my favorites, whom I have fondly named Tommy and Tammy:
Card Ingredients:  Bee Crafty digis;  DCWV papers;  Bazzill and Recollections cardstock;  Copics;  Circle and Beaded Circle Nesties;  Martha Stewart Mica tinsel glitter;  Dress It Up buttons;  We R Memory Keepers Blue Lagoon baker's twine.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I have made Tommy and Tammy for the following challenges: Digital Tuesday - use some green;   Going Grey w Scrap Creations - Christmas;  Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch #130:


Do have a wonderful Thursday - see you all again tomorrow.

Hi Deanne, I just had to come see what you have been up too and guess what....I saw the sketch from SSW. I love the fun paper piecing on your card. These little angels are adorable. I am sorry to hear you have been sick. I hope you are doing well now. Your picture of your Christmas decorations in your home are beautiful. I need to get busy and get mine up. You have inspired me.
Have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Nancy SSW

Wow your decorations are incredible, I have to say I'm rather envious, this is the second year I've been with my partner during Christmas as i lived at home before so sadly we don't have many decorations and our budget over Christmas doesn't allow for buying more - nether-the-less yours are gorgeous!

Danni said...

Love your Christmas Tree your colour theme is awesome just so pretty. Love your card this is such sweet images and your papers are delightful love your famous button and bow love everything about this card. You will be proud of me I tried and button and bow with twine out a few weeks ago, I didn't do it whilst you were on DT as that was your trademark so now I've done them twice and love them and so happy how they turned out.
