Christmas Crackers

Well, one day we were knee deep in snow and the next, it was completely gone!! Like magic :-)) Don't worry if you're missing it though - we could have it all over again at the end of the week!!!
Here's a couple of Christmas Crackers to show you - I made them using Karita's tutorial in the Christmas Magnolia Ink magazine. I have put an envelope with money inside mine, but they are a really good size for a small present - (very) roughly the main body is 7" x 2.5".


Try as I might, I can't get the ends of my top cracker to stay pushed out, but it still looks ok!

Challenges
Stamp Something - Digi Day.     I have used Cuddly Buddly Digi Images.
Cuddly Buddly Crafts - The Icing's on the Card.    I added Star Dust Stickles glitter to both images and the edges of the leaves, punched the flowers from glitter card and sprinkled Diamond Dust on the snowflake.
CES Challenges - Anything BUT a Christmas Card - I know it 'Christmassy' but it's Not a card!!   ;-))
Allsorts - Last Minute Christmas
Just Cute Bears & Friends - Anything BUT a Card

Digital Images - Cuddly Buddly - these were freebies available here  but check out their shop for some more adorable images and tons of crafting goodies.      DP - My Mind's Eye, Signature Christmas.
