Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #8

Yay! It's challenge time at C4E again. This week along with Michele's marvellous sketch, we would like you to use flowers & add some glitter to your cards.

I've used my all time favourite Father Christmas stamp. He's a few years old from Rubber Stampede, but he is the perfect embodiment, in my mind of what Santa really looks like! My papers are from Melissa Frances. I may have to stock up on these!

You can see the glitter better in this photo, I smeared glitter glue through Santas beard & the snowflakes, & even gave his eyes an extra twinkle! The poinsettas I made, following a fab little tutorial at the new Whiff of Joy Tutorials & Inspiration blog, here . There is loads of fab ideas on there, it's well worth a look.

So now it's time to hop on over to the Crafts 4 Eternity blog to see the wonderful creations of my fellow teammates. See the sketch & their cards here. I hope you will join us this week, especialy as you are in with a chance of winning a set of Michele, oh so cute, Christmas Cupcake digital stamps.

My card this week, coincidentally fits in with this weeks Colour Create Challenge, where the colour scheme is green, red & white. Nice traditional Xmas colours!
Well, that's it for now. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
Big Hugs to You All,
Andie xx

Andie! thanks for the heads up about the tutorial at Whiff of Joy, I haven't seen it and your poinsettas look FABULOUS!!! This card is very pretty and vintage looking! I think this would be what my Santa would look like too! Hope all is well with you sweetie! Hugs, Dena
