December Mid-Month Reveal!

Hi everyone!
We are definitely in the home stretch until Christmas now - as my kids would say "only ten sleeps to go!" I hope you have all your shopping done and are all organised and ready for the big day!

If you are one of those organised people and you have some creative time up your sleeve, then don't forget to put our challenge on your list! Our challenge this month is to use the sketch provided + the word 'together'. Easy, right? (And don't forget to include a handmade embellishment too - it can either be made by you, or purchased from someone else.)

And as we have done the previous couple of years, we are doing something a bit different for our prize this month...

You won't want to miss it, our design team are always very generous! ;)

Now, onto some inspiration from our team...

Charms Creations heavenly heart and terrific tab: Studio Fourteen40 flairs

Flutterby Designs flair; altered Cocoa Vanilla Studio wood veneer word


Resin flowers, black scroll piece, Pink Daisy Border and butterfly from The Resin Rainbow; 
Apricot Daisy Pin from Rainbow Splendour

Rainbow Splendour flair button; Corbett Creations planes

Burdy's Embellies kit, cogs and DIY button, Rainbow Splendour bow and wood veneer

I hope we have gotten your mojo going and that you can find a little time this month to squeeze our challenge in. Entries need to be linked up prior to midnight, 31st December to be eligible for prizes. 

Finally, I would like to announce that after three years with Show Us Your Stuff my time here has come to an end. Thanks to everyone that has been involved along the way, I am sure I will still "see" you all around. 

Have a merry Christmas!
Over & out.
