Waiting for Santa

Happy Friday, sparkly friends! I'm sharing another Christmas creation on the Live & Love Crafts blog today. It's hard to stop when Sandy has added so many festive beauties to the shop. ♥️

Short and sweet from me today as this week has been a time crunch!
I have paired Pion's Greetings from the North Pole with some wintry Wycinanka chippies.
This sleeping sweetheart stole my heart. The frame is a Joy! Crafts die. I hung a few tiny stockings (including two for the birdie friends in the tree) and surrounded the scene with winter's beauty. The Wycinanka Reindeer is one of my favorite chippies, which I have covered in Shabby White Frantage for snowy white with a touch of holiday gold. ♥️
Sweet pine cone charms jingle from a Fayette bow. The beautiful new lace is Marquisa and I am completely enamored with it. The classic Rhinestones Lace adorns the opposite side.
The Wycinanka Snowflake is covered in Shabby White Frantage and topped with a Christmas Cheery Lynn Designs poinsettia. I used a Sunflower Pearl for its center, as I love how it resembles a snowflake. (And of course I take any opportunity to add an extra pearl or two.) ;) My sentiment is from Whimsical Designs (no longer in business) and is cut out with a Spellbinders pennant and trimmed with Fayette Lace.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a lovely day! ♥️
