Crafty Secrets Christmas Challenge


I just love this time of year…..time to gather the family around, baking time in the kitchen increases, homes get cozier…it’s just my favorite!

It’s also time to get busy planning all our Christmas projects!  Gifts, cards, tags—so many things! 

I love this new “Snow Globes” stamp set from Crafty Secrets…

So much to play with!  Sets like this make creating so very easy—all the lovely images to mix & match.   I love silhouettes, so that’s what I chose today…











Just a little bit of watercoloring was all that was needed…and a bit of sparkle, of course!

Some beautiful print-up yourself paper, a bit of lace & baker’s twine & you’re done—easy as pie!

That’s it for me today!  I hope you’ll take a minute and visit my fellow DT members for more inspiration—and welcome to our new ladies!

See you soon with something new…
