Are You Dreaming Of A White Christmas? (FSC#9)

Are you dreaming of a White Christmas? If your thoughts are straying that way then why not join the fun at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where our latest theme is I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.  We would love to see your artwork representing this theme but please remember to include stamping.
We also have a new DT member (Fashionette) as Paula has now joined us. Paula (Ephemera’s Attic) creates the most inspirational artwork so as you can imagine we are thrilled she is now part of the team.
I used one of Crafty Individuals newest stamps, CI -332  for my DT sample.
For a bit of fun I asked the FSC girls if they could guess what I had re-cycled, giving the clue:-” it is something we all use everyday”. Well the gold star and heading straight to the top of the class was Terry who guessed correctly ….. a toilet roll!
My idea was to re-use a household item to create pretty packaging for Christmas. Sparkle has been added to the image with the use of glass glitter,  Stardust (clear) pen along with crystal gems.I am also sharing a matching card which I’d actually made as another sample for the Crafty Individuals’ Winter Wonderland challenge (I know many of you visit Crafty Individuals’ Blog where you might have already seen this card).Many of the supplies used on the packaging were used on the card.
If you head on over to FSC you will see the amazing artwork from my fellow team mates alongside the details for entering your artwork to this challenge. We look forward to viewing your I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas artwork.
Wishes
Lynne

    Lynne, I can honestly say that this is the most beautiful toilet paper roll I have ever seen! Thank you for the gold star award!!! On a serious note, both of these creations are so lovely. The white and silver are so elegant combination and you have such a way with lace to bring out even more beauty! Love these!

    Lynne your work is always dreamy and I can honestly say I have never seen a more prettier toilet roll. The matching card is the snow frosting on the cake. Beautiful hunny bunny.
