Christmas Scene


Inside, the wallet part.

I made this to put scratch cards in for my Dad as a stocking filler, I get him a £5's worth every Christmas, Birthday and Father's day. His real weakness is horses, he's no big gambler but he loves to watch the horse racing and put a couple of little bets on.
To make this I used a scene stamp but I have no idea what brand it is, but it really was gorgeous to colour and use. And although it isn't showing much there is a lot of stickles on my snow.

Well i'm finally all ready for the man in the red suit to come. I have just two more traditions to fulfil and that is to buy my Mum flowers on christmas eve as I have done this since I was about 8 years old, she loves flowers and at Christmas she loves some with red in. Our other tradition is to travel 1/2 hour to a gorgeous village near us called Otley on Christmas eve to a family butcher's shop that sells the best ever Pork Pies. We buy standard pork pies at £5's each, the whole family buy them and me and the hubby get the joyous job of travelling through beautiful scenery to go get them. My Husband has been a wagon driver most of his working life up until the last couple of years and can drive in any weather, so snow doesn't put us off.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
2. Stamp Something - Something with a tag or pocket
3. Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
4. Crafts And Me - challenge # 20 - Anything Goes
5. Creative Craft Challenges - Anything Goes

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year
