Little Claire launched a new challenge at the weekend.  Christmas in White - a delightful prize is on offer to the lucky winner.

I have used a Little Claire topper - highlighted with glitter glue, faux stitching, matted and layered onto a die cut from Spellbinders to create the topper.  Added to an embossed image using 3D foam pads for dimension.

The red bow fixed using a tiny brad..

Cats and em dogs....from Little Claire

Hi all,

Busy bee at the moment - tis my dad's 80th birthday tomorrow and he doesn't want a fuss......so table booked, balloons ready, candles and cake good to go.  Just a quiet family meal out but we've got to make it special.  Mum was all for a take-a-away chinese which they normally do......but dad said yes to the suggestion we take them out to a place of his choice.  So hope we are booked for downstairs - I did ask.

Which leads me onto my dad's birthday card  yes using one of the Little Claire's newly released stamps - cats of course.  Mum and dad have Holly who they love to bits.

Sentiments are also from Little Claire.

Now where did I put his present......................................??? xxGaynor

Create a triple bow using organza ribbon and fasten around the matted backing papers.

Little Claire Monthly Challenge #62

Good Morning everyone,

I can't quite believe how fast these challenges keep arriving... fingers crossed for a lovely weekend.  I so love warm autumnal days and cosy evenings.  The colours this year are already looking amazing.

Well today marks a new blog challenge at Little Claire - your favourite stamp.  Was so tricky to decide so I worked with an autumnal colour theme and used the delicious flowerhead.

Little Claire have a £10 voucher up for grabs to spend on anything from their website.......decisions, decisions.  Why not join in and share.  xxGaynor
