I didn't think I would be able to think about Christmas at this time of the year but I was looking at Linda's blog - A crafting journey and was inspired to make something completely different again, but in her TH style. I loved her little hanging she posted on Monday and decided I really fancied doing some 'grunge'.
Alot of my Christmas bits and pieces are in the loft, and I think I will have to get them out, but here is what I had fun making with what I have in my supplies.
The stamps are TH Letter to Santa collection and the text is from Serendipity Stamps. I used antique linen, fired brick, peeled paint and vintage photo DIs. The tree is a die cut from Lisa Bearnson and I popped out the circles, glittered them and stuck them back in. The tree was coloured using the peeled paint and then I embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used green and red stickles for the holly and berries round Santa's hat and added the ribbons at the bottom. Thanks Linda for the inspiration.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Luv B xoxox

Love this Brenda ... the bestest thing is that you have taken an idea and made it into something that is entirely your own ... I am chuffed ... feel like a proud parent :0)
Wow Brenda, Gorgeous Christmas card, I am loving Santa in fact I have a stamp very similar to this in my stash somewhere, when it is inked up it gives a shadowed effect. Anyway I digress, I love the way you have created the Christmas tree with baubles effect, very clever.
