Driving Home For Christmas

Hello lovelies,

It's been quite eventful here in Stafford this past week. I am sure you must've seen the absolutely tragic news of the two men who lost their lives in the firework store explosion last week. The industrial site in which it is situated is not that far from our house and it did give my cat and I a pretty big fright. Ever so loud! I am thinking of the families of those who died and those who were trapped. One of the ladies who managed to escape I read on facebook to be a fellow crafter. It makes you realise how crafting connects you to the people of the world. Those who are the other side of the globe from you and those who are just around the corner.

Anyway, it is that time of the month again. No, not that. It is time to share with you my latest Gruffies and Guests Challenge DT make. A tiny bit on the tardy this time. (Sorry, Shaz!) The challenge this time is "Christmas is Coming". Which suits me as everyone knows that Christmas is my favourite time of the year. This time I have chosen this adorable picture of Gruffies driving home for Christmas with their car loaded full of goodies.

I have used a  6 x 6 red card blank, with the matching backing paper from the CD. Also, I have used some snowflake backing paper from my stash. I have added two colours of ribbon in blue and white down the middle, as well as star brads for embellishment. The little snowflake is punched out of mirror board and a gem added for extra sparkle. I have also used some iridescent glitter - my favourite - as sparkly snow.

I really do hope you like my design.The only problem I have with it is, is now I have Chris Rea's "Driving Home for Christmas" song in my head on repeat. 

Do join in with the challenge, for a chance of winning a £10 voucher from Scribble & Scrap Crafts. Fab prize! Some lovely entries already.

I am also entering this into the Winter Wonderland - Pick & Mix challenge.
