FOSTV 52 - Cracked Glass

Merry Christmas Eve!!!  Today is our Christmas Day....confused?  Me too!  :)  My husband works tomorrow and has to get up at 3:30 in the morning and since we celebrate on Christmas Eve into the wee hours we decided to move our holiday back a day.  We celebrated on Sunday with our Cheese Fondue and Chocolate Fondue and moved over to gift opening.  Short and Sweet this year with the kids growing up and husband on a bedtime deadline.  Still it was an evening to treasure!!!  I hope your holidays are special in whatever ways you celebrate them!

Our  FOSTV challenge this week is Cracked Glass.  I bought some "crackle accents" for my project but it really didn't work out like I wanted so I looked up a tutorial!  LOL you know the old adage...if you can't get it to work try the directions!  Here are a couple of tutorials you can check out:   Davi's tutorial  or   Chris's tutorial .  I did use the "crackle accents" on the butterflies and they look nice and crackled!!!  I look forward to seeing  your project linked up here!

I used the new stamp set Ivy & Blossoms for my focal point.  I think the ivy in this stamp set is just gorgeous!  The cracks in the "glass" are there but it's difficult to see in this photo.  My next photo shows it off better.  

If you play in this week's challenge you will be entered in a drawing to win "Ice & Snow pictured below.
