OOAHC Challenge 28

Hello Friends and Followers-hope you have had a really good week.

Great to see people's decorations on their bottle and jars last week at Out of a Hat Creations

This week sees the start of our Christmas in October which was thought up by Florence and she will be doing all the posting and organising for October-thank you Florence.

 Sing your favourite Christmas song as inspiration and get ready for a fun month of challenges.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingles all the way la la la la--yep that worked.

This weeks challenge it is to make a card or tag to ease us gently into the rest of the month.

Hope you will join in with us and have fun along the way.

I used a medallion stamp by Hobby Art Surrey that I have had for a long time Stamped it 3 times then coloured the layers with Promarkers. Added a bit of glitter then layered them up.

I made a tag as well but decided it would make a nice card so I used it for that.. Another Hobby Art stamp but this time I embossed it and coloured the baubles with a red pen. Added a gold leaf from some pot pourri,  the little cones that I found under a tree in town, and a little sprig of corn that has grown in our garden.

Nice to see all the greenery at Christmas isn't it? lol

Love Chrissie xx
