Hanging Out

Well, I'm pleased to say that I've finally started my Christmas shopping - I'm aiming to keep it really simple this year because I'm struggling to get into any sort of Christmas Spirit and maybe not letting it all get too stressful and complicated is the best way to cope. I keep saying that it's because I'm still waiting for the Summer to arrive - how can it be Christmas when we haven't had a summer yet this year? hehe
Classic FM have started playing Christmas music though, so maybe that will help - I do love a good old sing-along!

It's the first Tuesday of the month so there's a new LO idea on The Sketch File
Here's my first project using the new sketch

 Materials and Tools
Papers: Carta Bella 6x6
Glitter card; Red, Gold
Gold Crochet thread
Gies: Spellbinders snowflakes from several sets
Punches: Martha Stewart, EK Success, Woodware

This is the sketch
Or maybe you could use it like this:
