Merry Christmas!

Phew it's been a hectic month - I'm looking forward to a holiday away soon because as much as I love Christmas the build up to it is always stressful.

I do have time today for a quick share though. :)

I re-purposed a frame that my sister no longer wanted and turned it into a quick and easy home decor item for my Mum. She loves to decorate for Christmas and I knew she'd appreciate having something stamped to put on the wall. This took next to no time to complete and I was so pleased with how it came out that I'll be making similar frames in the future.

The matting was already in the frame - I simply removed the picture and added a piece of Very Vanilla card stamped with all of the words from Four the Holidays. I added some glittery stars from a packet of Alphabet stickers and the little birds and tree are from the Merry details Sizzlet die. Ink colours used were Marina mist, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Early Espresso.

What do you think?

What a great idea. Good to be able to reuse things.
