100th Blog Post!

I didn't intend this post to mark the 100th posting I've made on my blog as I hadn't noticed this was my 100th post LOL! The only reason I noticed was because a fellow blogger has also made her 100th posting and is running a giveaway. If you've never come across this lady's blog then you're in for a treat as her projects are stunning and very different!
The blog is called Dips Designs - follow the link and join in the giveaway while you're there. Dips is on the design team for Tonic Studios and they have given her a complete set of Verso Corner Dies as the giveaway prize.

You have until 31st December to enter - Good Luck!

Lothian Crafts December Challenge

I'm a bit late posting this - should have been yesterday LOL!

For the challenge this month Elaine has chosen the theme of 'Christmas - using your dies'. A very open theme that could be something other than a card so let's see lots of entries this month and you could win £10 to spend at Lothian Crafts Online.

Here's my card for this month:

An easel card and Mirri card - a camera's nightmare combination LOL!
It's difficult to see from the photo but the backing paper (from a Joanna Sheen cd) has tiny golden bells tied together with red ribbon on it. The 'Noel' is a metal embellishment from an old QVC kit.
The dies I've used are:
Marianne Design Creatables - Bauble and Bell
Marianne design Craftables - Passe - partout round (I used the smaller circle die from this set to stick to the back of the rosette.
Marianne Design Creatables - Circles (The largest die was used to make the gold circular mat.)
Lea'bilities - Border Corner Holly

The challenge is open until 4th January 2014 so pop over to the Lothian Crafts blog and join in - good luck!
