In A Jar!

I do hope everyone is managing to avoid this dreaded Norovirus, so near to Christmas too.  I have my son at home with it, and they have closed his school till the 6th of January to give it a deep clean and try to stop the virus spreading any further.
So It's time for me to share my mid month creations for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Anything Goes', it couldn't be any easier, I had a play with a mixture of stamps, I liked this mason jar which was a magazine freebie but then was looking for some bugs to put in as originally it was going to be a 'Have You Caught A Bug' card.  I couldn't find the right bug stamps but then came across these Inkylicious fairies to use, then came the scene and it all came together on a Distress Oxide background. I covered the mason jar with some Glossy accents to give it a glass like look.

We have sponsorship this Month from

'be Creative!' 

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Flowers All over'  I went with these Penny Black Sunflowers, I made my own background using a Lavinia leaf stamp and some Distress Oxides.  The sentiment is a Penny Black one too.

We have prizes from Penny Black & Bee Crafty . Now isn't that good prizes, definitely worth getting your stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Two fabulous creations Tracy. A really beautiful scene on the first one, stunning background and lovely images.
Gorgeous flower stamp and lovely warm colours to brighten this horrid foggy day and now pouring down with rain. Another great background too.

Hope your son gets to be feeling better soon! So much going around here too, but no school closures. Luckily it's almost time for winter break!

I though I should have a quick catch up with everyone after my enforced screen break and as always two delightful creations await.

Wishing you a Peaceful Christmas Season.
