Forest Friends

Good afternoon and Happy Halloween hope the weather is treating you better than us! It's cold and rainy here so not sure of the kids will be going trick or treating. Mollie and I have had a crafty afternoon to make up for it!
She was sent some gorgeous craft sets by my BFF and she's had great fun getting messy with them
She started with painting sun catchers and is now doing some glitter art!
Whilst she was busy with that I have been adding to my Christmas cards with a stamp I've had for a while and never used!
It is perfect for a design Team Call I'm applying for over at Stamping Smiles Design Team Challenges
In order to apply I have used their Tic-Tac-Toe
Using Forest friends, Leaves and Twine
These little pals are from Crafter's Companion Mulberry Wood stamp collection. This set is called Giving. I have colored them with my Spectrum Noir makers and added glossy accents to the fairy lights in the bigger moose's antlers.
I then matted a white card blank with green card. The design paper is from Lili of the Valley's Krafty Christmas 8x8 paper pad, I wound twine around the right hand side of this before placing fixing this in place on my card.
I matted the image with the same green card and affixed this in place. The holly and berries were die cuts and I glued these and the Lili of the Valley tag over the cross of the twine.

As well as apply to Stamping Smiles Designs I am entering this card in the following challenges
 52 Christmas card Throwdown - Pick a previous Theme - Fairy Lights
Allsorts Challenge - Christmas
