the holly and the stickles

this is one of the little projects I wanted started and finished I used the cricut christmas cheer cartridge and cut two different sizes of holly and berries and then creased the holly . Then decided to add stickles to random edges of the leaves,this was done when I should have been asleep so these layed at my bedside overnight to dry. Then I just threw everything in a box and leaves were layered up at random on to the circle I had covered,starting from the outer edge working in, I used silicone glue to give it a 3D dimension,but you could achieve this using different sizes of foam pads or depth of glue. Then the berries got a covering of candy cane red stickles and again these were just applied at random and the ribbon finished it off

TIP: punch your hole for hanging before you start layering up I did it with the cropadile and used an eylet and ran the chiffon ribbon through for hanging so much easier than doing it afterwards!!!

I`m still wondering if to give this a coat of modge podge or other sealer..... Well I have finished another little thing I was giving a test run

and must say it worked so simple and fast that I just went with the flow and happy how this one turned out also, will show later and well thats 2 down and how many to go!! trouble is the faster I clear the more I think to try....... I have not been to good last few days some Virus going about decided to hit me,but today I feel a little better

Well we are promised some of the white stuff this weekend and when I was out tonight with my DS ,we saw some of the white stuff they promised, it is so chilly and tomorrow I have no plans at going out at all

have a good weekend............

This is my take on Di Hickman`s sketch Nov ~#1 I loved trying this

you can find it here I loved this high quality double sided paper from Graphic 45,some lace from my stash ,corsage pin and pearl brad with prima flower behind it,the rub on is one I had not sure of manufacturer of it sorry!!

Well after running around like a headless chicken yesterday I so needed to make something,honest I never stopped yesterday and then had school meeting to go to,I feel sort of icky today but think it might have been the Big LACK of coffeee I crave daily lol!! honest I could not survive without my coffee.......................................

I have now gotten things/ideas wazzed around,but still find my self laying awake at night to fill the inner void with something else,I think I might have to write them down or do a sketch. I did finish the big piece of work and done a few smaller ones, but off to go try another idea I have will it work!!?........... don`t ask me I`m going to give it a go though I`m in recycling mode lol...........

11th,day of the 11th hour,of the 11th Month

Let us not forget........

In Flander's Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place;

and in the sky The larks,

still bravely singing,

flyScarce heard amid the guns below.

We are Dead. Short days ago We lived,

felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved,

and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.

Take up your quarrel with the foe;

To you from falling hands we throw The torch;
be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep,

though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

(written by Liet.-Col. John McCrae, a Canadian serving at Ypres)

Me and DS sat on straw bails working out what they wanted to do next,it was such a freezing cold day...........
