Say it with Chilli, Lime and Waterfall

Good evening….and a good evening it is as well. I have had one hectic term at school and now I have 6 weeks of holidays! I usually teach two days a week, but this last term I was pretty much full time! However, I have made it through and am grateful for that. I am now looking forward to getting my house back in order, spending some time with my family and preparing for Christmas!

Today’s challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps is a colour one.

The blue really had my head spinning, but in the end I managed to gather my thoughts and produce this.

 All the Belles are using the Holly Branch stamp set – but you don’t have to. This challenge you have 2 weeks to play along.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Holly Branch stamp set

Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps Kraft card stock, Regal Craft Card – textured

Other Supplies: AnnaBelle Stamps Cuts By Design #3 – Decorated Christmas, Cuttlebug, AnnaBelle Stamps Chilli Sprinkles, Copic Markers,  WRMK Corner Chomper

This week’s Deal of the Week is 20% of all Christmas stamps and this will run for 2 weeks. The Discount Code is 20Christmas.

This week’s winner will receive a $10 Gift Voucher to the AnnaBelle Store.

Just before I go, it was my son’s b’day last weekend and he requested a spider cake. My husband is the birthday cake maker and decorator in this house, and so he came up with this design. Clever isn’t it? My son loved it!

Thanks for stopping by,
