Xmas Cotton Reel

Hi everyone hope you're all well and keeping warm :)  Can I just say a big " Thank You " for all  the well wishes you wonderful peeps left for my mum ...she is doing much better now after yet another operation and should be home again by the weekend :) 
Today I have something different to share with you that I've been dying to make ever since  i saw the one my friend and fellow blogger Mandy   (A Sprinkling of Glitter) had made ...  It's an altered toilet roll tube  made to resemble a cotton reel. I was hoping to enter my make into Lili's little Fairies ~ anything goes challenge with using their Christmas Star image  but I  missed  it :(  I really should  try to craft a bit quicker ... lol 

Sorry for the blurred pic, I'm getting fed up of now  how they turning out  ... I kept it in though to show you the shape :(

I coloured my image using a mixture of Copics & Polychromos, I also added some Stickles.. Pearl Pen ... Diamond Sparkles and Chalk.

 Most of my flowers/Leaves  are from WOC which I sprayed with Perfect Pearls & White Pearl Mica Mists then added a sprinkling of Polar White Flower Soft, the twirly thingy I made myself :) .... little jingle bells are from my stash.

I am entering my cotton reel into the following challenges .....

1) ... The Emerald Faeries  ~ Anything Goes
2) ... ABC Christmas Challenge ~ U for up to you
3) ... Fashionista challenge #8 ~ Anything Goes

Thanks for the visit today ...see ya again soon :)
