Christmas Makes...Take 3

Hi folks...today is the going to be one mad mad day...tickets sales for the weekend have gone through the roof so the show will open early today...Saturday is usually manic with thousands of crafty folks descending on us intent on spending their crafting piggy bank pennies...a trip to the loo or to top-up the caffeine levels will be a pushy shovy "elbows out" excuse me expedition the equivalent of trying to hack your way through the jungles of the Amazon but today's the day that the Weatherspoon girlies have their meet-up...a chance for a lunchtime chat and lots of hugs...
looking forward to it girls...that is if I can manage to hack my way through the crafty hordes.
In the meantime I'll leave you with another Christmas Make...
I was off on yet another tangent when I spotted this gorgeous tartan Merry Christmas sign in Tesco...perfect for using with the Studio 490 frame and for showcasing the wonders of  the fabulous Frantage goodies from Stampendous which I'll be demo-ing at The Papeterie next weekend...first sample in the bag. 
sharing a little cubbyhole trick on how I created the snowy accents on the lettering....drizzle with Versamark re-inker which will hold the embossing enamel in place until it's melted...the rest was just sprinkled on and heated from about 10 inches away until it started to melt and then you can move closer to finish it off
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
