Hobby House Midway Reminder

Good morning blogging friends..

Hope you've got a wonderful weekend planned with more craft time than housework!

Today's card is one I made for the midway reminder over at The Hobby House.

This month's challenge is our Hobby House Artists. 

You must use an image from one of the artists stocked by The Hobby House. It can be either a stamp, digi or topper from the following artists
Mo Manning
Elisabeth Bell
Kenny K
Silvia Zet

Apart from our image stipulation it's Anything Goes.

I chose this gorgeous image from the Gingerbread Wishes topper sheet. 

The papers are Dovecraft's Back to Basics Christmas and have been distressed with Walnut stain. Embellishments from The Hobby House include roses, Cherry blossom, jingle bells, rhinestone sparklers and Shabby White Frantage.

The rest of the embellishments have been made using die cuts:

Joy Crafts floral flourishes - Leaves
Memory Box Catalina Wreath (with a liberal coating of frantage!)
DooHickey Vintage Tag

The card was the splodge here and there with some Snowtex to give it more of a Christmasy feel.

Here's a close up of the lovely Elizabeth Bell topper.

And a stightly angled view...

Hope you can join us for this month's challenge. There's a fantastic £25 voucher to spend in The Hobby House up for grabs.

Happy Crafting,

Big Hugs,
Janine xx
