Frosty Christmas Candy Cane

Hi peeps,
Sorry bit late posting this but been pretty down in the dumps as we sadly had to have our beautiful Old English Sheepdog 'Harry' put to sleep. He was a gorgeous gentle giant and will be missed so much.
Well fortunately I did manage to finish my first Christmas gift bag and I used the most adoreable 'Candy Cane' from Saturated Canary. The challenge for the next fortnight over at Basic Grey is 'Cold and Frosty' so I combined DP's from Baisc Grey Wisteria and First Editions Silent Night pad.
The beautiful snowflake border is from Joy Crafts and I smothered them with Stardust Stickles so it is super sparkly. The layout was a fab sketch from Saturated Canary and was such a joy to use.

I coloured this cutie using my trusty Pro's then I distressed everything to within an inch of it's life with Pumice Stone DI, Shabby Blue Frantage and a whole lot more Stickles. I just couldn't resist using the stunning new pearl snowflake swirls from Creative Expressions so I went a bit bananas.

Well I hope you you like it and I 'll be back soon when I have had a few days to get my head together.
I am entering this project into the following challenges:
Saturated Canary - #56 'Sketch by Maria Therese'
A Creative Romance - 'Winter Blue's'
Inky Chicks - #17 'Pearls and Swirls'
Deep Ocean - #64 'Winter'
Live and Love Crafts - #17 'Christmas Inspiration Collage'
Addicted To Stamps - 'Punches and Dies'

Bye for now
Big Hugs

Sparkly Blue Fairy Tilda for Basic Grey

Hi folks,
A little late with this post as I was off having a fab day at the Lincoln Papercraft Show. A huge Hi to all the lovely peeps that came to see me today it was great to see so many of you.
Anyway it's time once again for another super challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges and this time we want to see 'Sparkle and Glamour'. I made a folding star card and used the gorgeous Summer Fairy Tilda but gave her a snowflake wand and made her into a Christmas Fairy!
I coloured her with my Promarkers, added a ton of Shabby Blue Frantage and Stardust Stickles. The yummy snowflake die is from Joy Crafts and the Poinsettia is an SB die and made from BG Granola paper.
Well that's all from me now hope you can give us an entry but remember to use something from Basic Grey.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - #192 'Anything Goes'
Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps - 'Anything Goes
Midweek Magnolias - 'Lots of Layers'
Simon Says - 'Anything Goes'
Totally Gorjuss - #208 'Anything Goes with Snow'

Big Hugs
