Touchy-Feely or What?

Hi, and welcome!

Have you been takin' a gander at my Christmas Countdown (above)?  I lose days, just gazin' at it.....hahaaa!

Another Friday, another challenge at 
and this week we are getting all touchy-feely, lol........and want to see lots of


on your creations.......what can you use? Embossing, fabric, 3D, beads and buttons, even burlap! Make your creations something that we want to run our fingers over!

Returning to sponsor us this week is LIMITED RUNS! There is such a variety of images at Limited Runs.... something for everyone.  While you're there, check out the freebie on offer, and the many  many, CUPCAKE images!  There are cupcake images for every occasion, and I  promise they are calorie free!

Our randomly drawn challenge winner will receive their choice of 3 (three) images from the Limited Runs shop.

When the Design Team members were let loose asked to choose an image from the store, I immediately fell in love with this very cute little fella...........he's called Chilly Owl and I've adopted him.....hahaa!

How cute can ya get?  I love his sweet ickle woolly hat, and he's obviously got really chilled 'cos he's got snow (aka Flower Soft) on the top....heehee.........he's coloured up with Promarkers, but they are doin' nothing to keep him warm.....bbbrrrrrrrr.......there's also a touch of sparkly Mod Podge thrown around, lol....

The card base is kraft and I layered just one piece of Kaisercraft paper, then embossed a piece of white card (Cuttlebug Snowflakes) and ripped one edge.....added that word!

I'm making a 5 feet square version of this sign....goin' up in front of my house....hahaaa!  I used the postage stamp die from Spellbinders Office Supplies set, and the sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly........

This is the first time out for my lovely Memory Box tree, and it snowed! I cut the tree from woodgrain card.......

A strip of cute pom-poms finishes my little card, nicely.

The rest of the Design Team are waiting to show you their own lovely creations, so don't forget to pop over and say hello.....we'll all be looking forward to what TEXTURES you can get onto your creations!
