Merry everything .......

Happy Monday evening .......

It's the 4th day of December and guess what ...... I think I've finished the Christmas shopping! Well, the gifts anyway.
Lauren and I hit the town this morning and I think we're all done ...... with just a couple of little extras.  Everything that was on the list was crossed off by the end of the afternoon plus we picked up a couple of bargains in the 3 for 2 offers! 
I even remembered to buy the wrapping paper.  Guess what I'll be doing later!

First things first though ..... it's time to get this month's Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge started
As always the theme is Anything Goes ...... with an optional twist for December of ....... a Stencil

The gifts may be bought but, I've still got most of my Christmas cards to make so quick and easy, with stunning results is the way to go I think, and stencils are a great way of doing just that.

I love this stag don't you ..... he's a perfect size to make him the focal point on your card with just a simple greeting underneath (my finished card is 7x5 inches).  You don't get much more CAS!

I used white texture paste through the stencil and then sprinkled over with a fine gold glitter ..... love how he sparkles

I added a dot of red glitter glue for his nose and suddenly you've got Rudolph!

A few dots of white Enamel Accents here and there, and a festive sentiment, heat embossed in gold, and we're done

As always the challenge is sponsored by the HLS store, and the winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on fabulous craft goodies. Why not join in the festive fun!

As we were out Christmas shopping today and, the festive menu was launching at the Prospect, Lauren and I thought it was only right we should go and check out the delicious festive baguette ......

Hubby joined us too, for a Christmas dinner, with all the trimmings, on a crusty baguette ...... yummee!!  We'll be having one of those again!!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day

Cheerio until next time ......

  4. Great minds Linda! I LOVE that stencil too. Your stag looks simply Regal in gold and that RED nose. Wish I had added a red nose to mine now. Nice splotches to finish your fabulous card. Merry Christmas.
