CHNC challenge 579 for 29 January 2022 - use a sentiment


 A new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!


Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Use a sentiment'.

Do pop over and see the fabulous inspiration from my teamies!

A simple card today... the same idea as a couple of weeks ago!



Recipe:
  1. First I used a cream card blank.
  2. I added a layer of patterned paper with Distress ink around the edges (vintage photo).
  3. I upcycled an image from the packaging of my Art by Marlene advent calendar.

I will also add this to Rudolph Days January Challenge 
Happy Crafting!

WOYWW 660

             WOYWW

  

Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #660

So what's on my workdesk? Well much the same as last Wednesday. So my picture is off my crochet!


Once again we are over in Newlands Arm at our youngest son's, looking after the granddaughters while he has gone away with work. With Christmas coinciding with the long Summer school holidays, it gets quite complicated. With the girls back at school next week it will be easier. The only Crafting I did last week was for a few DTs so will not be shared until the appropriate dates. 

Of course, l did bring the temperature blanket. We are still definitely in the warm colours! I use an app on my phone which predicts the Max temp each day. I then keep an eye on the actual temperature to see if it gets higher!

Last week we went to the tennis.  We always try to get to the Australian Open and this year we managed two days.



Dan made this gift of me and Ollie - we had a family barbecue when we got back from the camping trip.



Finally, trying to keep cool on Sunday we went for a quick paddle on the lake. Kevin managed to fall in.





Hope you are all well - stay safe... I hope I will have craft to share next week!

Happy WOYWW !!

Today I am sharing my little Poe book that I started using Leigh's Poe Book in entirety.




I cut the pieces with my Cricut, stuck them together to make the three pages and then started embellishing with pockets and stamped images. I used images and designs from
from Raiders of the Lost Art and the Poe Gothic Junk Journal pages, Gecko Galz and old Smeared Ink real rubber. I adeed pockets to hold ATCs and a postcard...





This postcard has an image from Gecko Galz on this side.


and Gecko Galz and The Raiders of the lost Art on the other.

As Poe is featured in that real rubber stamp I will also add this to the current

Hearts

You can find one in the sky.

You can form one out of rocks.

You can shape one out of socks.

You can make one out of buttons.

You can stamp one in the snow.

You can fill today with hearts everywhere you go.

by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater

 

I have used Leigh's Heart Blooms on my calendar that I add to each month.

I printed the image, coloured it with shimmery watercolours and matted it on a lilac paper.

I added some faux stitching with a fineliner.
