Kraft at Christmas Pink Gems!!!

Yep I'm back again!!!
Hamster is still going ya know! He seems to be blind and really not well but he isn't giving in without a fight bless him, we just keep giving him cuddles as much as poss as he seems so cold :(
Edited Multi (thats his name) died this morning so it's funeral time before work, kids are handling it surprisingly well though.
We have a new challenge today over at A Gem of A Challenge again and this time our Jenny has given us the theme of Kraft at Christmas. I do love Kraft but the same can't be said for making xmas cards in July!
I get like this every year. I find it hard to get my festive mojo on in the summer (I have no idea how some of you do it all year round - hats off to you lot!)
So, despite my reservations about making another xmas card, I decided to run at full speed and tackle it like I would a regular card and hey presto....
I have used Tim Holtz shabby chic papers with kraft card stock and a mass of white crackle paint!
My lace, flowers and pearl sprays are WOC. My snowflakes were cut with Mariannes dies and my sentiment is Waltzingmouse
I have used one of the super cute new digis that Janet has in the Pink Gem Designs store. I have coloured them with prismas and added stickles to the snowflakes and Anitas glitter snow to the floor. I really should make these things more in advance too as all this paint, glitter and snow etc takes an age to dry!
I would like to enter this into Allsorts distressing, 2 sisters xmas in July and Jellypark challenges xmas in July.
Do check out the stunning creations from the rest of the team with the Kraft theme!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again folks!
Big hugs

Love your card, such a cute image and love the embellies :-) Such a shame about your hamster... I remember the one I had when I was a child in England... they're not allowed in Australia so my kids had mice... nowhere near as cute and cuddly! I think kids do deal with it, if we let them :-) Donna ☺

Jennifer said...

This is so gorgeous Rebekah. The blues look beautiful with the kraft. Gorgeous colouring too. So sorry about your little hamster. My mum used to breed them when we were kids so we were used to having some poorly ones, and had many a little cardboard box burial in the back garden.

By the way, thank you so much for the beautiful Birthday card. Gorgeous!! I really don't deserve it as I am hopeless at remembering the Pink Gems birthdays. Thank you honey. xx Jenny xx

Awwww Rebekah Im so sorry to hear about poor wee Multi. But at least you know he had a good wee life and he was loved and cuddled to the very end. Poor wee mite. At least the kids aren't too distraught which is good. Your card is really cute, the wee image is so sweet. Lee x
