DAY 23 - Christmas Inspiration

Good Monday Morning to you all,

Well, I don't know! just where did that weekend go again!! but at long last I am able to tell you my fabulous news!!
I will be returning to your TV screens this week Tuesday and Wednesday to be precise!
I have been asked by the lovely Steph to join the Tattered Lace team to demonstrate on C and C and I am delighted to be asked! 
As you know one of my many passions in craft is die cutting and I am chuffed to bits to be asked to demonstrate for such a very popular company.
My first outing will be on Tuesday at 6pm (unfortunately for those of you that don't have Sky it will need to be watched on your computer) this will be demonstrating the brand new dies from the Starlights collection which is the Craftinator being launched by Nancy tomorrow.
I am back on Wednesday with a 1pm and 4pm show.
I hope that you will be able to watch and are as pleased for me as I am!
Well, back to the matter in hand today.
It is Day 23 of my Christmas Inspiration and my offering today is ~
A little Black and White number!

This is another project made using the Sue Wilson dies and this time it is the Noel Christmas die which is the main focus of this design.  I have cut the die in black and kept the black and white theme throughout.  The icicles are a Spellbinder die and I cut this in both glitter card and black cardstock and offset them to look like a shadow.  The background is a Crafters Companion embossing folder from the vintage range.  I have also used Tattered Lace poinsettia collection to make a little flourish at the bottom right and added a little organza ribbon.  A few little gems and some glossy accents finished the project off.  I love a black and white Christmas card and really enjoyed making this one.
I hope that you have enjoyed looking at it and if you have please leave me a comment.
I have had a few enquiries as to how to leave a comment.  If you are not registered to Google and dont have a blog you can still comment.  Go to the end of the comments list and simply make your comment in the box and after that use Anonymous to post your comment but please make sure you put your name in the comment box after your comment to make sure I know who to get in touch with if you are the lucky winner of the Blog Candy!
I hope that makes sense!!
Hope to see you tomorrow,
Thankyou so much for popping in,
Bye for now
