Christmas Frame - Santa and his Sleigh

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you had a good weekend. Both me and my husband have been suffering with sore throats and coughs which seem to be worse at night. During the day it doesn't stop you doing much. On Saturday we ordered a cooker to replace our part broken one. We also made a start on our Christmas shopping, at last. On Sunday we worked in the garden there is a lot to clear up after the drive being done. In the evening we went to Christmas choir practice. It is nice to do something a bit different. Unfortunately today I have woken up with a bad headache which is making it a bit hard to get going.

I went to a craft day at the end of October and one of the things we made was a Christmas frame. Using the Stampin Up Santa's Sleigh stamp set with the matching dies. The frame itself came from the well known Scandinavian store.

We made most of the frame design at the workshop. I did tweek it a bit when I got home. Isn't it hard photographing shiny surfaces? 

I added a Santa that I made with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp set with the matching punch. He was coloured with Promarkers. 

This wonderful sleigh was made with the dies at the craft day. I added the presents later. 

Reindeers stamped and cut out with the dies. I was given the stamps in the craft day goody bag but I couldn't justify buying the dies,  now I am not working. I do like sets that match, so that was a hard decision to make. 

My friend was struggling to fill a stall at a Christmas Craft sale and I offered a few items, one of which was the frame, to help her out. You can see it on display in the window It is my first try at trying to sell some things. 

I hope you have a good week. There is so much I want to do I hope this headache goes. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

I'm sorry to read that you're not feeling well Jackie, I hope it doesn't last. You need plenty of hot soup and rest until both you and hubby are back to full health again.
Your Christmas frame is wonderful. I love all the different die cuts you added and I like the additional tweaks you made when you got home from the class. Adding the die cuts on the mat really adds depth to the scene. Well done!
