Teddybo White Christmas Lantern ****

Hi Crafty Bloggers

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are in the Christmas spirit ! I sure am ! . We have lots of lovely snow. Everything looks so pretty. Our greyhound Suzie has been having great fun bouncing around and trying to catch snowballs ! I have spent a long time lol making this pretty lantern. I got the wonderful idea from here Lena's is out of this world !

I have chosen Teddybo_158 and my runner up prize Teddybo_172 they are so well drawn I adore the little teddies they are carrying !

I have put flowersoft polar white on the windows for snow ! Lots of pics grab a coffee lol ! I found this lantern quite difficult to make and requires millions of patience lol but it is so worth it in the end .

I have added lots of cuts using my cricutt which I have distressed for example the numbers.

 I have decorated the lantern with pretty lace , beads , pearl brads , twine and silver bells........

....................and pom poms!!

I still need to buy one of those pretend candles for it !!

 I love the top I think it is so pretty but was hard to get it together lol.
Lastly there is a little surprise underneath !!

A Miniature Secret Card !

Well that's it ! I shall leave the recipe underneath ! I would love to enter my wee lantern into the following super challenges .....
