A Christmas gift......

Hey everyone, Emma here......

Well, I had some time spare again over the last couple of weeks and I thought I would make another gift ready for Christmas.  I really love making notebooks, they make the most fabby presents,  and I COULD NOT resist using one of the most GORGEOUS stamps around....


......I am so in love with the new Nellie Snellen stamps...they are just the most sweetest designs ever!!!  This one is called 'Frog on Flower', and I have got to say the little frog stole my heart hehehe!!!  You see....I have a weakness for frogs....I LOVE THEM....

My One True Love......
.....'Kermit'.....!!!!!

I just can't help it...I really love anything that has a frog on it!!!!


I used some paper that I had in my stash for years and I really loved it for this delicate sweet image, all the edges have been distressed, glittered and machine stitched...


....I have watercoloured with Distress Inks,  the nobbly trim, ribbon and lace are from the market....


....I made the twisted ribbon flower myself and the other flowers are from Hobbycraft, I used a label machine for the words...


....I added a cute little vintage button that I also had in my stash.  

So....I am going to parcel this gift up with some fancy pens and pencils and there you have it....a great little Christmas gift!!!

Thanks so much for looking and all the lovely comments which I love reading....
