Zoe - Challenge # 20 "Christmas is coming"

Good morning Lovelies! Well it's certainly feeling quite Christmassy already, the shops are done up the weather is cold, and the adverts have started!

Our theme over at Rhedd and Rosie's is "Christmas is Coming" you can enter here don't forget we are an "Anything goes" challenge so as long as you follow the theme it can be anything! please make sure that your entry contains 2 or more of these listed elements please : Gift, Angel, Tree, Bauble, Star, Bell or Stocking!

I love Christmas, this Christmas is going to be very different for us this year! Firstly our darling little Ruby (fostered baby) moved on to her new forever family on the 9/11/13 a day after her first birthday, I can't tell you how utterly devastated we both are, well it's the same each time one of them has moved lol! But it's wonderful for her and her new family. Bittersweet! So we aren't going to have a baby or little one for Christmas this year :,( our first one in nearly 5 years of Fostering.

But the most wonderful thing is, we are going to spend Christmas in Canada with our wonderful daughter and her boyfriend, how exciting is that? We've not seen her for 2 years as she's been studying hard at Uni. It's going to be very cold I expect, but I've got some thermals lol

This fortnights challenge is sponsored by "Craft shapes Torbay" and they are offering this amazing prize it retails at £14.99 please make sure that your entry contains 2 or more of these listed elements please : Gift, Angel, Tree, Bauble, Star, Bell or Stocking!

This post I'm dedicating to our gorgeous little Ruby! I have made my pieces for her, they will go in her "memory box" hopefully they will be put on their tree as a memory of us?
Bye bye sweetheart Love you so much! Xxxxxxx taken just before she left 9/11/2013
So on to my samples! As soon as I got them I knew I wanted to give them to Ruby, so I've kept them simple, just painted with Distress paints having Gesso'd them first of course, the angel I used gilding flakes, but the other 2 I heat embossed with silver EP, I have to say! The embossed ones came out better, I have done both sides, added some Tim Holtz tinsel and voila!
I hope you like my decorations? Thank you for visiting, I hope you join in, don't forget to pop along to the rest of our very talented DT samples! Bye for now have a great day xxx
