Well, we are now into December, so let the festivities begin! I made some mince pies and jam tarts last night as I have my family, including three Grandchildren coming over tomorrow to help put up my tree and decorations. The eldest is five and the youngest almost three, so it may be a very interesting day lol. I'll let you know how it goes!
It's time for our final challenge of the year at Stamping Sensations and our theme this time is 'Anything Goes.' I know that December is such a busy month for us all but there's so much scope with this theme, so why not join us. Here's the card that I've made:
I've gone for a traditional theme myself. I know that Robins can be seen all year round but they are associated with Christmas and I love them! This little beauty is by Crafty Individuals and all other stamps are by Inkylicious, except for the sentiment which was a freebie from a craft show a couple of years back. I've added some fluffy puffy stuff onto the log to add some dimension and also some glitter onto the snow, although this doesn't show too well on this photo.
We are very generously sponsored this month by:
who are kindly offering the lucky winner a £25 voucher to spend at their online store.
We would really love it if you could join us with a piece of your artwork featuring this month's theme but please remember that Stamping Sensations is a 'STAMPING' challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

Now is you're a fan of Crafty Individuals stamps, you'll be very pleased to hear that the have two shows on Hochanda at 12pm and 4pm. Lovely Lesley from Chocolate Baroque will be helping Jean with the demos and then Jean will be helping Lesley out on her Chocolate Baroque shows too, so it promises to be a great day of crafting fun. Jean has some fabulous new Christmas stamps and hopefully, you might see some of my samples on there.
