Out with a Bang…

Belle – My little helper for the day!

It is a lovely overcast day here which means I have a helper sitting on my desk.  Actually, I often move her little bed to the desk where she likes to have her morning sleep before getting up & going outside for a couple of hours.

It was our last class for the year with Crafty Creations & we decided to go “out with a bang” – so to speak!

As well as having a small Christmas break up, we also created this great Christmas Cracker which can filled with lots of little goodies.  Mine has been created especially for one of my niece – Ash which I will fill with chocolates as she is mad on the stuff,  must take after me!

It is light enough that I will be able to hang it from the tree.  I now to have to create another for Sarah.

I found a great little tutorial from Sara.  I did change it a little as I made it a little longer on the edges as I wanted to punch them to give it a little bit more of a different look. 

As I am waiting on my order & knowing the image would be too big anyhow, I decided to use the Santa image from “Santa’s List” using MDS.  This way, I could still colour him the exact colours I wanted AND also reduce him to the exact size I wanted.  Gotta love that!

This project also fits our current challenge over at Sunny Challenges where we have to create something for the Christmas Season.
