Just Inklined to Hop–Something to give for Christmas

The Blog hop this Month for Just Inklined is sure to get the inspiration flowing for Christmas ideas, this Months theme is Make something to give at Christmas and our host is Heidy and that is where our Blog hop Starts.

You should have landed here with me from the all inspiring Jeni’s blog so be sure to go to each blog and leave a comment as there will be a couple of spot prizes for comment left.

I wouldn’t deny I found this a struggle having lost my MoJo but I’m thrilled how it turned out.

I used Father Christmas from Just Inklined for my project of a tea light holder (battery operated) and here it is all aglow, I used the Tonic Studios gear levered star punch.

Father Christmas2

I printed out the digi stamp onto a heavy white vellum paper and added one of my snowflake papers as the background then coloured his with Promarkers.

Father Christmas3

I added stickle glitter glue onto his hat and around the cut out stars on the vellum to let extra light shine through.

Next up is the uber talented Tammy and I know she will have something special to show you all.

Don’t forget to leave a comment at all of the blog you visit on the hop for a chance of winning a spot prize.
