a sugary christmas...

Good morning everyone and Happy Monday...and no it isnt Christmas yet and still trying to be summer I think, but any excuse to show you this stunner of a stamp called Festive Friends from Suagr Nellie, its just the perfect image for Christmas isnt it, I love that little cuddly penguin...I coloured it with distress inks but because theres loads of the dreaded red I paper pieced some of it...the lush paper is from Rayher Classic range and is called X-mas stripes...all the snowflakes were in my stash, I love all the different textures of them together and the stars are a sheet of peel offs I found in the bottom of the box, cute arent they, I never think of using peel offs anymore but it just goes to show you never know do you...the fab sketch is from The Sugar Bowl, and I also made this for the Craft Us Crazy Christmas in July challenge and Fussy and Fancy Friday Christmas in July challenge too...Im probably up to my elbows in wallpaper atm...have a wonderful day everyone
