...Yep, that would be me... indeedily I am a giddy kipper today! And why? Well, firstly it is Christmas in 3 days and I do loves Christmas and secondly, even more excitingly... I booked my flights last night! Where am I going? Only to CHA and then to stay with Ellen for a few days afterwards! Ohlalalaaaaa... I am SO excited! And I do promise not to be a right old pain in the bum, telling you how many days it is til I go (20 days!!!!!!!!!!!) Also, it will be a reunion for my Ranger Sisters too: Oh yesh, Candy, Linda, Yvonne, Cheryl and Ellen who is an honorary Ranger Sister will all be there and I just cannot wait to meet up with them all again, it has been so long!
Anyways... last night I got myself so excited that I couldn't sleep! I am like a big kid in the run up to Christmas you know! So, wide awake and fizzing ever so slightly, I decided to take a little trip into the Room of Stash and sketch some ideas that I have been buzzing around my bonce for a few weeks. The first one is this little cotton bobbin project. I have done a similar one before using Studio 490 Art Part Spools but this time I wanted a more natural look... so I left the tree alone save for smidging Gathered Twigs DI over the ends of the branches.
The little deer is a Movers & Shapers Tim die - cut using Claudine's Sticky Back Canvas and Grungeboard and then smidged with more Gathered Twigs... and the WISH is an Adage Ticket in a Memo Pin which I just shoved into the wooden bobbin. I cut two Mini Tattered Poinsettia from Grungeboard and coloured them with Forest Moss and Barn Door DI and then added a little beady thing to the middle. A bit of Jute twisted around the bobbin with a couple of Baubles were the finishing touches.
Right, I shall away... I have a special project that I am now just about to start.... tis tomorrows Sunday Stamper so please do pop back tomorrow to see the new theme... which BTW, isn't a festive one *yay* Thanks for looking... have a FAB day! TTFN
PS... did I tell you I am going to America??? ROFL
