Crazy Christmas Capers...

 Well back from Norfolk and what a landing , I'm still black and blue from pinching myself after hearing I'd won the 7th birthday Challenge at the  Crafter's Companion Challenge blog To be picked out by Sara and leann  over a hundred other entries is mind blowing , looks like my Christmas has come early.

The weekend started well with our trip out to Sussex on Sunday to join all the other mad motorcyclists dropping off toys at the Golden lions hall for  the children's home. They organise a Christmas party for the kids in January and at the end the 'Real Santa' comes in and gives them their presents . Our costumes went down a treat with the locals, everyone was waving at us as we rode though the villages and eventually 120 bikes and bikers arrived at gatwick Manor,to swap gifts for hot coffee and mince pies!! The haul of toys was huge, so the kids are going to have a great time this year. This weekend we are doing it all again and I'm dressing as a Reindeer!! If you would like to see all the photos check out my 'Things with Wheels' page at the top of the blog!!

 The trip to my family's went well and was not as eventful as the journey home, One minute I'm jumping up and down on the side of the A12 with joy after chatting with the lovely Leann Chivers, next minute I'm helping Paul fix the blow-out on the back tyre on the side of the road in lewisham!!

Anyway back to reality  now so here's a Project I made for our friends over at J AND C CREATIONS  Why not pop over sometime and join in this months Challenge Floral Delights

Take a blank card base 14 x 14cm and cover with stripey pattered paper then matt and layer some white card onto some black and mount this onto the stripey paper at an angle, Decorate with border peel offs and paper candie, Add some torn patterned paper embossed the edge of the paper with Gold embossing powder and melt. Cut out a spellbinders Lattice rectangles die cut from gold card and and place on top of some torn pattern paper
Now you will need to stamp your image ,
I used a 'Bella Rose Scroll' Rubber Stamp set from the Heartfelt Creations Range  why not check out the large range of Bella Rose stamps over at the J and C Creations website.
Colour the Scroll with watercolour pencils and put a light red wash on the edges of the scroll, The rose was coloured the same way with oranges and yellows and greens and yellows on the foliage and then cut out and glittered with Stampendous gold halo glitter, Stamp the sentiment 'Thinking of you' in Versamark and then cover in gold Embossing powder and melt.
This has been mounted onto more torn patterned paper and some melted Angel's Hair. This is then mounted onto the decorated Square.
I like this stamp a lot as the top of the scroll is blank and you can put in any sentiment you like, from Happy Birthday to Deepest Sympathy, a very versatile stamp to have..
