Scrapbook Boutique November Blog Hop and Inspirational Challenge - November.


It's time for the  Scrapbook Boutique  Blog Hop and Inspirational Challenge for November.

The Hop starts and ends at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog.  If you're following along you should have arrived from Melissa's blog and when you leave me you hop over to Therese's Blog.

The hop is open for one week, closing at midday Sunday 17th November. 
To be eligible to win the prize, leave a comment on each of the blogs, with the SB blog being the last one.  The random winner will be drawn from the  SB blog and announced on Monday 18th.

Unfortunately the blog hop prize (and the inspiration challenge) are only open to anyone with an Australian mailing address.

One lucky person will receive

Contemporary Roses from My Favourite Things.

We hope you'll join us and play along with our regular monthly inspirational challenge.
   Make a project using the following picture as your inspiration.





You could be the winner of a $30 gift voucher for Scrapbook Boutique.



Now here's a chance to make one more Christmas card to tick off your list.......That's my plan anyway:)

I've taken inspiration from the red/white polka dots and Santa's hat for my card today:



  • Stamping the image from Flourishes Dear Santa and colouring with Copic markers.
  • Layering a white base card with polka dot paper from Authentique.
  • Die cutting the centre circle.
  • Using foam adhesive to pop the images behind the die cut circle.
  • The Sentiment stamped to white card adding a twine bow and popping up to card front.
  • Die cutting holly leaves from green card using the Cheery Lyn Designs die.
  • Add two leaves to the sentiment layer finishing off with two MME enamel dots in red for the berries.
  • Two more Holly Leaves with berries added above the circle to complete the card front.
