Hello, and welcome!
I am really in the full-on Christmas mode and have been shoppin', decoratin' and craftin' to my heart's content.......yaaaaay!
In keeping with this festive mood, we have a wonderful challenge for you over at
The theme for this week is
This week, think of all the things we might celebrate this month... Advent, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Birthdays... you name it..... if you celebrate it in December it will fit this weeks' challenge theme!
We also welcome back our sponsor Whoopsie Daisy... Linnie creates delightful sheets of hand-drawn images, with each sheet containing 4 images! And there are so many to choose from! Do visit her blog to see all her fabulous designs. Our randomly drawn challenge winner will receive their choice of two sheets of digital images.
The image I used from Linnie was crying out to be on a vintage-style card....so here it is......
The card base is kraft and I used a piece of wrapping paper (from Ikea...hahaa!) as the background, with a little dark brown ink around the edges......this card will be given with a gift wrapped in the same paper, methinks......
I used the pre-coloured sheet but added some extra colour and shading as well as lots of Mod Podge sparkle.....I also added some punched snowflakes, also sparkled, of course, lol......
I really like this sweet ribbon.....it just seems to look right, don't you think?
I peeked into the envelope and this list is what the ickle girl has written to Father Christmas.....aawwww.....hope she gets it all...hahaaa.....
This sentiment has to be one of my favourites.....it was a freebie from Paulette at TLC at least 2 years ago......isn't it lovely?
The image has a label cut from red card, underneath it, as well as the list and a freebie journal card, and I finished off the card with 3 spots of Card Candi from Craftwork Cards.
I do hope you'll join us, this week......there HAS to be something that you celebrate in December, right?
Don't forget to take a gander at what our uber-talented Design Team have been up to....you'll get loads of inspiration.....always worth havin'......hahaa!
