Forever Friends Christmas

Good morning everyone! Last year I won the Forever Friends Cosy Christmas Collection so I decided to have a play with it! I have always been intimidated to colour the bears but I am quite pleased :-)
I used Forever friends Cosy Christmas image stamped in Memento and coloured in Promarkers, Cosy Christmas papers, peel off greeting and brads, American crafts polka dot ribbon and Green cardstock cut with a nestie.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Forever Friends: Use a sentiment
Pink Gem Challenge: Cold and Frosty
Little Claire's Designs: Christmas
Squiggles and Giggles: Go Dotty
Fun With Shapes and More: Animalistic Challenges
Jingle Belles: Creatures

Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments!

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
