Why not try it this year!
Sure to bring smiles from your guests!
Here is a new way to prepare your Christmas Turkey.
oxoxoxoxoxoxox Christmas love oxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
1. Cut out aluminium foil in desired shapes.
2. Arrange the turkey in the roasting pan, position the foil carefully. (see attached picture for details)
3. Roast according to your own recipe and serve.
4. Watch your guests' faces...
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your puddings be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Christmas dinner
Stay off your thighs!
Happy Christmas Everyone!

Here is my entry for the Artygirlz challenge this week... the challenge is to produce a piece of small art no larger than an ATC size and as I am back into making ATC's I thought I would enter this one ...the background is from playing with inks and the stamp is another of the fabulous Crafty Individual stamps.
click on image to get a better look of the background... as I enlarged it I have just decided this Rabbit has jumped over a stream and a red sky at night...lol
Thanks for looking

Hi all... well here we are with this months challenge :D We would like you to alter a jigsaw piece, any shape or size you wish. The only stipulation is that it MUST include 'bling' well it would have to wouldn't it when I'm setting the challenge..lol Here is my example... I used free background paper from Cen's loft and the Santa image is from Cen's crafty bits. I added lots of glitter and bling and used an Artistic Stamper flourish stamp to add interest to the background. My little finishing touch was to add hanging paper baubles stamped with a snowflake stamp (can't be seen very well here but there are more pics on my personal blog)
We have a free template for you to use if you don't have a jigsaw piece of your own but you need to enlarge the picture by clicking on it before saving it to your computer and printing out. Sticking the template onto cardboard before cutting out will give you a stronger base to work on.
The template is in four sizes so that you can use the one best suited to your own project :D
Chriss will be adding her example to this post shortly and will give you the rest of the details for the challenge and the end date. So happy crafting from me and I will be looking forward to your entry :D
Thanx Chris for setting this months challenge to alter a jigsaw which must include BLING, LOL.
We have 1 week to do this... closing Monday 15th Dec 12 noon UK time.
By either using the templates Chris has shared with us or you can use your own whatever you decide just leave us a comment telling us where to find you and we will pop along to see your creation.
We will use a Random Integer Generator to choose 1 lucky person to receive a little surprise crafty goody bag from us.
Happy altering ....I am off to do mine now!!!
At last here is my altered jigsaw for our challenge although it is not a brilliant scan sorry.
I covered the puzzle piece in a remnant of wallpaper, stamped the Crafty Individual Queen of Hearts stamp onto an ATC with black stayzon ink.
Added the BLING (just for our lovely Chris) to her crown and at the bottom of the puzzle... Then stamped randomly using the CI postage stamp... adhered a diamond circle on her eye which I bought from Karen at Scrapz.
Looking forward to seeing your altered puzzles.
The mounts can be covered in decorative papers, or stamped with inks, and used to embellish cards, scrapbooks, etc.
Sorry I have been a bad blogger this week...life just got in the way :(.
I actually took part in 2 of last weeks challenges but didn't get around to blogging them 1 was for Linda and Rosie on the challenge of an ANGEL.
Here is mine and I am sorry she's late.
I couldn't scan her as she is too big for the scanner bed and had to wait for Chris to take her Pics (thanks Chris)
I love primitive angels I have a few in most rooms in my house and so was inspired by them when I created her.
This not sooo little angel will hang in my hall along with the others I have sitting on the fire alarm box.
