A couple of items that were for the ESAD Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

Well I have managed to photograph a couple of the items I made for the ESAD Christmas in July Blog Hop. Unfortunately I didn't finish everything and I can't quite get the inspiration to complete them now. The sad thing is that Spotlight on Christmas is a stamp set that I love and is on the Once Last Chance list. Hopefully before this month is over I will be able to show you the last item I was going to make for this Blog Hop as it uses Spotlight on Christmas.

Firstly I have two rather plain Christmas Cards. I like plain. Clean and Simple is my motto. Here I have used Spotlight on Christmas and used Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery.

The tree is made using the Full Heart Punch. The sentiment is from the Level 1 Hostess Set Best Yet but I have omitted some of the words.

I also made three more Christmas Cards using Spotlight on Christmas using more traditional colours. I used Ruby Red, Old Olive, Baja Breeze (just love it for Christmas) and some Chocolate Chip.

Lastly I made a couple of Top Note Characters. Now these are by no means my idea and I got the idea and directions from a blog called wunsaponatime (click here to check out the site). There is also a U-Tube link to make Rudolph.

Now these guys are cute and fun to make. I made the boxes big enough to put lots of Christmas lollies in them. I have also used Pink Pirouette for Santa due to Blush Blossom retiring and have used Soft Suede for Rudolph rather than Close to Cocoa that I would normally have used. These guys will be featuring in an upcoming class so stay tuned for more details.

'Til next time,
