Rocking festive visitor

The theme for our fortnightly CCC challenge tomorrow (blogging a bit early because time could be limited tomorrow) is 'anything goes', so this was an opportunity to make up a rockin' snowglobe from a Hunkydory kit, this one being called 'festive visitor'.

As there is an acetate globe covering the decoupaged scene, it's one of those creations that is awkward to get a photo particular in the evening with a flash. Might try again in daylight in the morning.

There's not any actual crafting involved, but it was fun to make and will be something a bit different to try and sell when I have my 'at home' to raise money for Tearfund. There are eight in the kit, so another seven to be made up.

Photo taken outside - not sure this is any better:

This is also for:

Allsorts 221: use acetate

The paper nest dolls 11: shaped cards
Deep ocean 58: odd shapes
Love to create 79: fancy folds - there are folds within the base to make it rock
ABC 41: lots of layers

Creative inspirations 228: Christmas in August
