I Love Christmas

Its the season to be giving hand made Christmas cards.
Welcome to our last post for Imagine If for 2014.
 Once again we have a blog hop, you need to start at Imagine If
the previous blog was Tash`s

A little bit of a twist the week so please read to be in to win .
Each designer will give you a clue on there blog post.
  Once you have all the clues from each designer then you go to
 imagine if Facebook page and write I WANT IT ALL.
 If you get drawn, you have to  list all the products on the
 imagine if facebook page, if you get it right you get them all.
Easy as that

I started of with my cool candles.

The products I used above as well as a die a piece of plan cream
card stock and a piece of Kaiser craft basecoat Christmas collection
baking . liquid glue
Paint candles and decorate to your likening, whilst they are
drying you can cut your piece of card stock for the card base

Next cut you piece of patterned paper just a little
smaller than the front of your card base, and glue down.

I used a die to cut this, but you can make your own
buy using small beads and chipboard Holly leaves


Thanks for joining in the Christmas fun, my clue is
5 candle sticks .
You will find your next clue on Beth's blog HERE
Have a safe and fun filled Christmas
from us all at Imagine If

Think of others at christmas

Hi all . I always try to do something nice for some one, at lest once a week, it doesn't have to be huge ,
it could be as simple as a hug ,having a coffee with or buying a coffee for some one.
I found this list and thought it would be a good thing to share with every one.  Try it, it also gives you
warm fuzzies so you get something back as well.

For many people Christmas is a stressful, lonely and unhappy time. Imagine how good it will feel for both you and the person you help when you do something unexpected. Here are some ways you can help someone else this Christmas:
  • Pay it forward — pay for the person behind you inline without notice
  • Give someone a ride
  • Give a flower or bouquet
  • Cook somebody a meal
  • Smile at random people
  • Give hugs
  • Pay someone’s bills
  • Babysit or petsit
  • Walk your friend’s dog
  • Have a meal with someone you know or someone eating alone
  • Go grocery shopping for somebody else
  • Clean someone’s car
  • Clean someone’s house
  • Help someone get a job
  • Give food to the hungry
  • Buy or donate clothing
  • Give a dollar, some change, or any money you can
  • Work at a shelter for the homeless
  • Give someone a coffee or cold drink
  • Adopt a family in need
  • Buy holiday gifts for people in need
  • Participate in a food drive
  • Buy a meal for those in need at your grocery store
  • Give your time to any nonprofit that helps those in need

Hang it here....there....and every where

Wow not long to go now until is Christmas time.
This week we were given a Santa stocking.
Imagine If has lots of cool stuff for your
Christmas crafts HERE
You should have come from Katrina's Blog HERE
 We started with this.
I was leaning towards old style/vintage

So headed to my lace stash . I also added some tiny pine cones
and prima flowers, and a key
I painted up the "merry Christmas  chipboard, then added a little
colour using Tim Holtz distressed stickles. Scattered a few star
beads around and I was done.
I hope you are getting into the Christmas spirit. I cant wait to
see what the other girls have done :D  I know there will be
some fabulous ideas and inspiration for you.
