Traditional Christmas at TioT


It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight the theme is Traditional Christmas.  I've used on of my favorite Santas.  The background was coloured with Antique Linen and overstamped with holly and a music script, with a gold embossed stamped sentiment.  Matting and layers using a Sizzix dies.
The rest of the Design Team have some great inspiration for you, so please visit the main blog where you will find all the challenge details.

Well, it's another Grandma day for me - last week,  as we live on the edge of woods and there's lots of leaves down, we took our two intrepid explorers, armed with their first sticks, to play in the leaves - they certainly had fun!

It's hard to believe they'll be two in just over a month's time.

Thanks for calling in and I'll be around later in the week.

That's a great Christmas card Avril. I like that holiday Santa; he reminds me in ways of the one on my page. And I remember playing in the leaves as a kid with my grandmother. What a fun photo. The joys that young children find in things we take for granted is always so wonderful to see. hugs-Erika
