HLS Christmas June Challenge "Twine"

Good evening all.

A day spent cleaning and dressing rooms at the new house, thought I'd get the utility finished then found out I'd ordered two blinds for the same window instead of one for each....luckily the spare will fit another window as they were made to measure!!

Sadly my last post for HLS Christmas Challenge, life is getting in the way of crafting at the moment so I'm taking a step back. Many thanks to Kylie for having me this past year. Our challenge this month is to use "Twine" somewhere on your creation.

The joys of having most of my crafting stash in the other house means I'm very limited to what I can use to craft at the moment...it took me nearly two weeks to remember to hunt out some twine!
Stamp from Crafty Impressions, coloured with Whisper pens and a gold Gel pen...all found lurking in a pencil case! Dies from Spellbinders and Lawn Fawn. Sentiment from HLS.

Do hope you can join us this month and get ahead for the silly season. Pop over to the challenge blog to see how my teamies interpreted the theme.


  1. A splendid card with the limited resources you had to hand. Hugs Mrs A.

  7. A super card Carol, such a fun image and great design - you did a great job with your limited stash.

  8. Hi Carol, I will miss being on the HLS DT with you, but I'm in the same life-way at the moment, so also stepped back. Maybe in future we can return! Love what you've done with your 'limited craft supplies'...and this cute Rudolph just begged for a red bow tucked over his antlers. Also love his tiny holly embellies. Totally cute. Good luck with the new house decorating. Glad you were able to repurpose the window boo-boo. TFS & Hugs.

  9. Another lovely make carol. Hope you had a great weekend x
