Yep, it's September, people, and the third Thursday in the month, which not only means that it's time for our monthly blog hop over on Mo's Dream Team, but also that Christmas is-a-coming!! Kaly's blog is the beginning of the hop, and also from where you should have hopped to me! I know that Kaly would have had something quite wonderful to share with you!
As our theme is Anything But a Card, I've gone with a little Christmas decoration using one of Mo's gorgeous Elf images from the dual image set, North Pole Employees - a firm favourite of mine for Christmas makes!
I cut some rosettes with a Tim Holtz Alteration Strip die, punched some holes in the bottom layer to dangle some jingle bells from and used an old cotton reel with some Baker's twine to make the base of my tree. My little employee then topped my tree off! Simples. I did cut my rosettes slightly shorter each time (from Stampin Up Christmassy papers) to get cone shape for my tree.
I did struggle to get good pictures (probably shouldn't have left it until 10:00 at night to take them!!) You might just be able to make out the glitter on his fur trim and bauble on his hat. Otherwise, I coloured him with my Promarkers and a few Flexmarkers.
As you can see in this pic, I tried to stage it a bit with some pine cones but it proved too difficult to get a really good picture. It's a liitle wonky too but I kinda like that!
Right, now it's time for me to send you on to the blog of my lovely matey, Debby. Don't forget to leave a comment on each post as you could be the lucky winner of a $5 dollar voucher to spend in Mo's Digital Pencil!
