Delightful Challenge Thursday – Patterns and a New Release!

Hello, how is everyone?

It is time for a new release at Digital Delights by Louby Loo so check all the gorgeous new festive images that the uber talented Wendy has created to knock your Christmas stockings off!

We also have a brand new challenge over at the Delightful Challenge Blog and our theme this week is Patterns, so we would like to see you use patterned paper on your project please.

We are sponsored by
who are offering this fabulous prize!
So which of the gorgeous new images did I get to play with? It was this adorable little chap called Gingerbread PatchyLove him in his little gingerbread man onesie!!

Now every year my long suffering family has to put up with me making them my Christmas Biscuits. I know there should be a law against it! J  I usually gift them by wrapping them in a cellophane bag (I do add some ribbon and a tag) but I found this jar in Homebase for not-much-money so I bought a few and will be gifting them that way. Sorry guys!

Dies: Spellbinders ‘Lacey Ovals’, ‘Picot Edge Circles’, Layered Poinsettia’, ‘Ribbon Banners – Tattered Lace ‘Winter Foliage’ – Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’ – All Occasions ‘Snowflakes’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – LOTV ‘Krafty Christmas’- scraps from stash
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Jar – ribbon – gems – pearls - computer generated label

So I’ve left a trail of biscuit crumbs for you to follow all the way to the Delightful Challenges Blog where you can see the wonderful inspiration created by the DT and don't forget to visit the shop for cute digi heaven!

Thanks so much for looking, and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
