Merry Xmas To You All

Good Morning to you All

Today I just have a little something to share with you all, as I am now all finished Xmas preparations and as you can imagine playing in my craft room.

This is another of those wonderful hats that my dearest friend Polly gave me the template for.  I was going to put this on an Alice Band and wear it for my Xmas party on Xmas Eve, however after creating it, it is far to heavy to wear on the band, so it makes a super ornament.

It is made from a 12 x 12 piece of card using Polly's template.  After painstakingly putting it together, I decided to add a layer of textured modelling clay.  This I then air brushed in R39, before adding the wonderful white fluff, the sprig of holly and some memory box white snowflakes with some ribbon roses.

Here is another view

I might make another piece and make this into a box yet, we will see, would be lovely to give a give in it.

Anyway that is me, as going to make myself a lovely speciality coffee, whilst I wait for Matt to get up, you see we went shopping at 11.45pm last night and got in at around 1.40am this morning, but it was so worth it, to be able to shop in Tesco with no hassle.

What a fantastic hat Kate - what a shame it's too heavy for the band. How sensible to go shopping so late - at least there was no fighting through the hoardes! Hope you have an amazing Christmas and thanks for all the wonderful inspiration you've given this year.
