The Paper Nest Dolls – Mrs Claus!

Hello there! Hugs to everyone!! 


I have used the wonderful MRS CLAUS who is available as a rubber stamp HERE or as a digi HERE.
Now I have to confess to a touch of recycling here.  Last year I decorated a jar to put my infamous Christmas Biscuits in; a gift for one of my poor unsuspecting family (lawsuit pending!).  And here it is again, only re-decorated using this gorgeous PAPER NEST DOLLS image.
Lazy?  Maybe!  Cheating?  Definitely!  Easy?  What do you think?!!

Image: MRS CLAUS in rubber or as a digi HERE
Dies: Spellbinders ‘Picot Edge Circles’, ‘Layered Poinsettia’– Tattered Lace ‘Winter Foliage’ – Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’ – All Occasions ‘Snowflakes’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – LOTV ‘Krafty Christmas’- scraps from stash
Others: Jar – ribbon – gems – pearls – wooden snowflakes

So Claus your way over to the BLOG where there is lots of stunning inspiration to be seen and to join in with our CURRENT CHALLENGE which is always Anything Goes! There is a fab prize on offer too for one lucky winner and visit HERE to see all of Christine’s adorable rubber stamps and HERE to check out all the digis!!

Thanks so much for looking, and taking the time to comment. I can’t tell you how much it means to me!  Have a wonderful day everybody!!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
