Keeping It Traditional at Polkadoodles

Good morning well nearly time for the Big Man to come visiting. Have you been good or Naughty.
Well this week at Polkadoodles we would like you to share your 
TRADITIONAL Christmas Cards and projects
Now for my card I have used a fab CD/download from The Work & Play collection call Festive Hollybobs and you can find it in the store HERE. 
 This one shows the layers

I have gone with lots of Pre Coloured Embellishments and layered them up to create this scene. Just got to  love pre coloured images so close to the big day. Love that they are PNG so are so easy to use in Word as I did. I printed 3 of the Reindeer and layered for a 3D effect. The backing Paper is from Octavia Frosted Winter. Lots of glitter gems fluffy stuff and paint added to finish my card.
Well that my Traditional card and here is some food that you putt out on Christmas Eve to get them to stop. It is what the little ones put out every year 
it is made with oats and glitter and has a little verse. 
Well if you have still some cards to do then please come and play along with us we would love to see what your making.
Thanks for popping by I know how busy people are at this time.

Christmas Decor at Digi Choosday

Good morning and another week nearer to Christmas so this week at DIGI CHOOSDAY we are challenging you to share with us a Christmas Decor that you have made.
Dont forget we have a discount code for today only on the challenge blog

 and a 2nd one the reverse has the same verse

Well I love making Candles for relatives and friends for Christmas. So this is my Decoration. I have used both the image and the sentiment from our very popular CD/ Download. Octivia Frosted Winter. available HERE at what i can only describe as a steal. 
I printed the images onto Tissue paper then you fussy cut out and stick to the candle wrap in wax paper and gently heat with a heat gun to melt the top wax as soon as you see the image showing through stop and peel gently. Then i added some stars and lots of glitter and a ribbon round the bottom. I would remove the ribbon if I was going to light it and place on a large base and not leave it lit unattended.
Well have you made any candles yet if not why not have a go they are very easy.
Now head on over and checkout the amazing team and their decorations.
Thanks for stopping.
