Creative Fingers ♥ Christmas ~ Part 2.


Godt Nytt År! Da var jula over for denne gang, med masse god mat, gode venner & familie, kjempekoselig å få så mange flotte gaver & fine jule hilsninger ♥

DesignTeamet hos Creative Fingers ønsker å takker våre flotte sponsorer gjennom året som var, og har en bloggpost som du kan finne her. På grunn av sykdom og andre uforutsette hendelser, så ble disse kreasjonene først lagt til i bloggposten i kveld, beklager så mye forsinkelsen! ♥

Jeg har funnet frem fire av mine favoritt motiver fra Crafts and Me UK, Octopode Factory, Scrap n Dipity og Bugaboo Stamps, og det ble to julekort, en tag og en gaveboks! Boksen er faktisk esken til en kirsebær ost og jeg har pynta slike esker før også om du vil ta en titt: CrémeChérie keepsake box tutorial!

..og vi har også en Christmas blogcandy gående helt frem til 24. Januar, da vi har tatt en liten pause med utfordringene :)

Happy New Years! ♥ Christmas has come and gone, with lots of good foods, good friends and family, sweet christmas greetings, and I got many lovely presents too.. Good times :)

Creative Fingers Design Team wishes to thank our sponsors throughout 2017, and you can find the blogpost here. Due to illness and other unforseen circumstances, theese creations I am showing off today, was just added to that blogpost. So sorry for the delay ♥

I have colored four of my favourite images by Crafts and Me UK, Octopode Factory, Scrap n Dipity and Bugaboo Stamps ♥ Two christmas cards, a fun tag and a gift box! The box have actually been the container of a super yummy cherry soft cheese, and I have decorated theese before ~ if you want to take a look here is a link: CrémeChérie keepsake box tutorial!

We're also having a Christmas Blogcandy, wich will stay open until January 24th. as the DesignTeam are on an extended holiday break from the challenges ♥

For every person that enters I will actually throw in something extra to sweeten the pot!

Again, this is not necessary to do to win ~ only if you want to make the blogcandy grow, then it would help if more people knew about it ♥
