Crafty Tuesday!

Hi Everyone, another wet and miserable day here in Barnsley today so what better way to spend my day off then crafting! If you follow my blog you will know that one thing I could not live without is my Silhouette Cameo. Well one of my facebook friends recently shared a link to a star cutting file over at Sandra's Scrapshop and I really wanted to give it a go. So I purchased the files from Sandra this morning (fantastic, quick service) and spent my day off work buried in my crafting. Here's what I came up with:

The image is James Bear Christmas Cracker from Lili Of The Valley. The cut file as I said was from Sandras Scrapshop, the swirls, tag, snowflakes and doily are cut files from the Silhouette store.

The image is coloured entirely with copics. 

I am going to have to make a deep box to send this one in!

The papers used on the front and inside are Krafty Christmas from Lili of the Valley

The Silhouette Cameo and a range of accessories including gems, feathers and pins can be purchased from That Craft Place.

I really enjoyed making this project. Im not sure who is going to be receiving this one yet. Can you send yourself a Christmas card? I don't want to part with it lol.
