Christmas Chaos

Is anyone else a bit pedantic when it comes to dressing their Christmas Tree? 
I separate all my baubles out into piles according to their colour and size before I even start.

I can not decide if this little raccoon is doing the same, or if he is the manager. It could be the rest of the work force have scampered as nobody has been ladder trained and so was not competent to put that star on top without supervision....

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

A piece of glitter card was cut and a piece of green card was cut in the stripes plate die

The two were glued together

The Christmas surprise and the raccoon from the all occasion critters were stamped, coloured and die cut out and were then glued onto the card panel to create the scene

The panel was finished with sequins

Before being adhered onto an A5 card base
