A Christmas Story.

Hi all,
Just popping in to show you my entry into the Clarity Stamp Challenge.
The challenge this month is:
Now, when I saw it I thought, pffft, another challenge I shan't be entering.
I don't know about you but sometimes I struggle to get the initial idea and then when I do it doesn't always work out exactly as I had seen it in my mind's eye!
Such was the case with this challenge.
I racked my brains to come up with something fitting.
No luck! So I decided to give my craft room a bit of a tidy.
During the chaos I came across a pack of 4 mini canvases I had bought ages ago.
Then it hit me!! Light bulb moment!!
So off I went to look through my Clarity stamps (and there are a few to go through I can tell you!) and found what I was looking for.
Some time ago Barbara produced a set of stamps depicting the poem,
TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
Perfect!
So, here is what I made with them.
I think you will agree that this is a Christmas Story alright!
I stamped them all in Black Archival ink and then coloured them in with my Distress Ink Pens.
Added a bit of glitter here and there.
A fancy sparkly ribbon and
Bob's your Uncle!
I have used Blue's on these as I am giving them to my daughter to hang in her house for my two gorgeous, adorable grandsons, Carter and Leighton.
I hope she likes it!
I shall also enter this into the following challenges:
