Christmas is coming (via B&Q)


This is my latest for TIOT, the challenge being - Christmas is coming. This is a cunning piece, we had parked in the B&Q carpark to visit another shop, so we went in and loudly said "oh they don't have them in here" to fool them into believing we were only there for the wonder of B&Q. BUT I chanced upon the paint section ooooh said the crafter in me when I saw the colour cards. I managed to control myself and only take a few (20 is a few!)

I then came back home sniggering in a manic way, cut them down to size (someone else did the straight lines as don't do straight) stamped them, embossed them, mounted them on card and switched my smug mode on.

Fantastic idea to use the colour charts and it means you get lots of coordinated pieces to use on cards--ingenious.

Love your card with the snowflakes.

Off to our B&Q for some charts :)

Love Chrissie x

I love grabbing paint chips especially in the USA as they are bigger there (what a surprise)

Nice grab!
