Here I am again with my Craft Barn entry for the Alpha Challenge which is 'J'. I went for 'Jingle' so its a Christmas page. I also want to add a dose of self pity and apologise, once again, for not blogging very often and not getting around to visiting you all often enough. My husband has been ill for about four months and the specialists don't know what it is and as I suffer from CFS (ME was the old name) I am not coping too well although I am trying to be positive! My daughter is due to have a baby (so exciting!!) on 1st November but its breech at the mo so she has to go into hospital on Monday to see if they can turn it. I am a great big ball of worry all round! All in all, craft is taking a bit of a back seat and I am so sorry!! Self pity over now - here is my page!
I love Christmas so it was a good excuse to do a Christmas page! The background is Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Pine Needles Distress Inks blended then spritzed with water and dabbed with kitchen roll. The tree stamp is a very old wooden stamp with no maker on it - I stamped it twice so it went right across the page. The Santa's Sleigh is by IndigoBlu. I used black Archival Ink. I used a Clarity mask for the moon and coloured it with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. I dotted dries white glue all over the page and over the stamping for snow and added Tim Holtz white glitter for sparkle. The large letters are Cuttlebug and I wrote the words along the bottom and the music notes with a permanent pen. Please visit The Craft Barn Blog to see the DT pages and the other fab entries. Thank you so much for visiting and bearing with me! Its much appreciated. Take Care. Christine xx
