December Challenge & November’s Winner

Good morning crafters, Kirsten here. It’s time for the final challenge of 2013, all the details are on the challenge page, a big thank you once again to everyone who took part. The winner of the November challenge was chosen by & it chose….
Congratulations to craftyfield! Please contact Lisa at to get your prize.
Now, time for a little honesty. When Lisa chose this month’s challenge topic, I was more than a little trepidatious. I am NOT a fan of glitter. At all. I have no glitter card, apart from a few scraps & the few pots of glitter I have are from way back in the mists of time, when I first started crafting. So please bear with me this month, I’m unlikely to create anything earth-shatteringly fabulous.
I stamped the snowflakes from the Hobby Art Butterfly Kisses clear stamp set with distress inks; Chipped Sapphire, Festive Berries & Squeezed Lemonade & heat set them with WOW’s Clear Sparkle EP. I put double-sided tape of two different widths on the 6x6 card blank & covered them with gold glitter. I added doodling & faux stitching with a black fine line pen & embellished with gold distress stickles.


The sentiment didn’t stamp as clearly as I’d intended, but I decided it was a happy accident, because I liked the slightly faded appearance.

And now it’s over to you. Get that glitter out, (if I can do it, anyone can) & enter the challenge. After  all, starting 2014 with £20 to spend on new crafting goodies can only be a good thing.
That’s it for today, thanks for looking. I’ll be back on Tuesday.
