Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. . .

Morning folks!

Hope your weekend is going well? I've managed to get half my hallway done yesterday, paper stripped (finally) and holes filled, and repapered with a much nicer pattern. Was the previous paper yuck or what!! A really massive basketweave pattern in enormous repeating squares! Eeeuuuww!! Taking it off was like removing plaster, it was sooooo thick and lumpy!! My fingers hurt today - thanks wall!!

Right, to business. It's Sunday, so time for another theme at Winter Wonderland. We loved visiting all your St. Nick's last week, so fab work out there! This week we are daring you NOT to use anything Christmassy!! No christmas papers, images or ready-made embellishments. Now, don't all run for the hills!! You can make your own embellishments you know!

I used some gold card as my base, and ran some pearlescent ivory through the cuttlebug, then sprinkled glitter over it. The star I made using some gold card with a cracked ice pattern on it. I left some tabs on the edges and cut strips to stick to them and the base card to make it stick out.

I printed the words off the computer and dotted some gold Pebeo Touch dimension paint round the edges.

Your turn now then! Let's see what you guys can come up with!! Head over to Winter Wonderland and take a look at what my DT sister's have come up with - some great work there!
