Viva Vintage Christmas!!!

As promised a pic of a project done with a stamp from one of the new Viva Christmas sets.
I used papers from K & Co and Hot Off The Press.
The image was stamped onto a diecut circle (3.75in) using Olive Green StazOn and then distressed with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.
I layered it onto  gold circle and then used a Sizzix Decorative Accents die to cut the fancy frame and inserted the circle into it.
Added a bit of twinkle with some burgundy Stickles and some snowflakes punched from cream glitter card.
The sentiment circle is one I found in a bag and have no idea where it's from.......but I distressed it with AL and VP and added another punched snowflake.
The frame and snowflakes are embellished with some tiny self adhesive gold pearl type thingys.

I didn't get to play quite as much as I would have liked today as I was keeping the builder and his mate supplied with drinks while they worked. It was so hot out there and I didn't want them flaking out from lack of fluids.
Then I had DD needing to be fed at five before she got ready for work and Mr Manic coming in at half six.....don't know why I don't just open a cafe and be done with!!!
Now I am a bit hot and bothered after my bath so I am going to cool off for a little while and then start on a sewing project. I found a brand new king sized duvet set in the cupboard that has never been used and I am going to turn it into some curtains for this back room which needs a bit of a makeover. Cutting and pinning tonight and then I'll fetch the sewing machine down and get them finished tomorrow.
Bye for now and thanks for your visit.
