Friend LO

As promised (even if a day or two late) here's the LO from the class I did on Saturday afternoon.

We used Bazzill cardstock and patterned papers from the "Ebony & Alabaster" collection by the Black Market Paper Society - these papers almost felt like fabric.
We used a variety of punches (Martha Stewart and EK Success) on the corners, to create the frill round the large circle and a border.
We then made Skallanders as embellies - very,very fiddly but they look good!
The originals were simply black and white but I decided to lighten my page by using a purple as close to Pat's trousers as I could get. The ribbon is from the shop at A Maze of Memories where we did the class. Finishing touches - faux stitching and a couple of purple gems. Title was cut on the Cricut.

My Christmas prep seems to have come to a stop (apart from feeding the cake)...my pile of Christmas reading is growing (5 books so far) and I've
 done some internet shopping on the Boots website.
Today five clipboards arrived - I have plans for those but feel I need to make some more cards before I tackle them. :(

Nothing much else to report but the week is young yet!

What a lovely LO for your friend - super colour choices.

(Thanks for popping over to my blog; So you're a sequin, sparkle and orange skin kinda girl on a Saturday night are you?! I go for the tantrums and tittle-tattle of X Factor, and that's just the judges!!)

What a gorgeous l/o Susie - I adore those colours. I really must get more enthusiastic about Christmas but it's really not happening for some reason. Have threatened to get OH to do all shopping and see why i get stressed about it!

You'll never guess - my office buddy has bought a Vampire Volvo - same colour and everything - I await a little shot of it when he's less precious (has only had it for three days at moment!!).

Hugs and sparkles.
