I used my markers to colour in the flowers on the stamp along with the frame. The sentiment was added afterwards. The cream part is popped up with Dimensionals and then I added a few pearls onto the centre of the flowers.

Above is a scrapbook page for my first day of my Journal Your Christmas 2010 album. This is an online class that Shimelle.com runs and I love it. I bought a fab 12x12" polka dot album from SU and am lovingly filling it up.
This first page is my manifesto of what I promise myself to focus on during the festive season. It's made from a 12x12" piece of Very Vanilla CS and then I stamped with the swirly stamp in Baroque Motifs stamp set in Crumb Cake ink. There's some Jolly Holiday DSP and cute pearls and of course some glitter. Very simple and quick, just like all the pages I make for this month-long project.
Above is another festive project - Christmas chutney. I took the recipe from Nigella Christmas cookbook and filled up a variety of jars that I collected throughout the year. Then I got some red polka dot fabric and tied it on with some raffia. The tag is punched with my SU punches and a piece of Jolly Holiday DSP and a star (I bought a box of these from somewhere ages ago - too long ago to remember, I'm afraid).
More festive posts to follow...

Above is our tree this year. Immy is a little rascal so we've had to duck tape the tree to the table and she's had great fun trying to yank anything she can off the tree/table.
Anyhoo have a good evening and see you online soon!!!

The Two Step Bird Punch punched the leaves out really easily in Garden Green for the little monkeys to swing from. The base card is River Rock - such a useful colour now I've finally taken it out of its packaging.

The sentiment was from Contempo Christmas and the card was finished with some Basic Rhinestones. I coloured the Rhinestones with a Real Red marker. (To be honest, this seems to rub off. I need to coat them with some Crystal Effects to seal the colour onto the Rhinestones.) The Real Red ribbon finished off the card beautifully, I think.
I hope you are having a good end to your week. Our heating broke yesterday so we had an adventure staying at my parents at the last minute! Fortunately it's all sorted out now. Phew! Have a good weekend!
