Digital Delights DT.......aahh so sleepy.

Hey there  everyone, how did you like the mini releases yesterday...? from Digital Delights
today we have some more christmas inspiration for you.
This is the super cute Oralie the sleepy mouse



This is my first attempt at a tea light card and they are so easy to do, I used the template from from the amazingly talented Lena Katrine's blog.
Please stop ove rat the Digital Delights store and take a look at all the other new releases.
The rest of the girlies have also made some amazing cards please leave them some love.
Please check back tomorrow for another friday freebie.

SNR Digi Day
You can pick him up at our group!! If you enter a creation with him by Wednesday you will receive a “Exclusive” Digi Day stamp from us which just happens to go perfectly with Mr. Nutcracker too

              There will also be a random drawing for all entries to win a $10 gift certificate to our store.
                                 What are you waiting for head on over, pick him up and start creating.
                                                      Here is what I did with the handsome Nutcracker



The cracker is really easy to do
You need a piece of design paper 30cm x 19cm
and a cardboard tube
and your choice of embellishments

follow the measurements on the template and score really well, this makes it much easier to gather the ends with ribbon or fibres. Cut out little triangles to stop the paper tearing, the holes can't be seen when you have added your ribbon., add some adhesive along one of the long sides.
place your cardboard tube at the edge of the other long side (the one with out adhesive) and roll it up.
Decorate as you wish.
Hope this explains it well enough, they are easier than you think.
Have fun

                                                           Thanks for taking a peek
Hugs xoxo
