Crafting Cafe

So it's my turn for the inspirational post over on the Crafting Cafe - and before I go any further... they are having a dt call ! It's a fab team to be part of..... pop on over to the cafe blog to see how you join the gang...
The theme this month is 'altered art'.... I thought I would use the fabby image from Delicious Doodles to make something for my favourite time of year....... and I wanted to have something that I could have up all year........ so, what did I make?
I make a Christmas countdown!!!!! Did you know that there are only 112 days left til Christmas.....?
My project started life as a chipboard scrapbook album.
 My project just needed one of the scrapbook pages - lots left to get creating some other bits...
 I found some NitWit papers - I love them and have just been waiting for the right project to use them on.
 Next I got to colouring the fab digi that I chose from our wonderful sponsor this month

Regular Sponsor

 It's a stunning digi to work with and I love the finish...
 This is my finished wall hanging/countdown to Christmas....... did I tell you there are only 112 days to go....?
 Here are some close ups for you - look at the sparkle and shine of the stars.....
Ok, so over to you now.... we would love to see what you can create with the theme this month.... and remember there's a dt call out too!
Back soon to show you some more crafty things that I have been up to.

Happy crafting
