Bah Humbug Challenge 42

Well I'm back but I've not been at the bead shop all this time - just had an incredibly busy end of week.  I had a lovely time at Stitch'n'Craft where they have an amazing selection of beads and I've bought some VERY small sizes which I've not  used before Czech charlottes which are even smaller than size 15s) so they could be a challenge.  I met some lovely people at the beading workshop yesterday and we had a good time making some beaded beads and I hope they went away with some ideas of what might be achieved using Peyote stitch as well as the beads they made - thanks Jill for posting the picture so quickly!!

Anyway back to the topic for today's post - the Bah Humbug challenge this week is presents and I thought this Forever Friends decoupage would meeet the topic nicely.  Background paper and greeting is also FF (Docrafts) and I've just used a Nestabilities die and Sizzix embossing folder, then added a tiny tag using a Stampin Up punch and stamp. Final touch was a little bit of fairy dust here and there.


  1. Another really cute and lovely card Val...
