Good morning, the weekend is nearly here....another week closer to Christmas and I'm starting to wish I'd made more Christmas cards than I have ...Oh well there's always M&S!
On the subject of Christmas this week's challenge at Delicious Doodles is to make a Christmas gift, so after I'd finished panicking I remembered the wooden 'words' I bought at a craft show whilst on holiday. I should have thought to take a photo before I altered it, but I didn't! It was just plain wood. I painted it with acrylic paints, white first then kind of streaky blue over the top. I randomly stamped and heat embossed some white snowflakes and white frontage. The little scene in the 'O' is a Delicious Doodles image, A Robin's Christmas, which has been lightly coloured and glittered.

 The die cut trees are Memory Box. I added some die cut snowflakes and 'snow' to the base. I was planning to give this to my lovely friend but may have to hide it as my son's fiancĂ©e has taken a shine to it!
Sorry about the dodgy photos, the colours haven't come out at all well, the 'snow' is white really!
Thanks for visiting!

Lucky son's fiancee! This is really fabulous, Chris! I love your pretty image, the way you colored it and fitted it into the word, the color palette, the cool snowflakes & "snow", and the sparkle! Really beautiful creation! :^)

Must have the same camera as me Chris that never shows the right colours either!
Fabulous and very clever creation, especially the scene behind the O and a really lovely scene it is.
