#125 - Anything Goes

Merry Christmas everyone! 

This is our last challenge for this year  and we will be back on 4th February with our first challenge for 2024. We are having a slightly extended break to give a couple of our team members time to recover from illnesses.


This week it's  Carol's  turn to host the challenge at CD Sunday Plus.

Here is my card.   



I made this card using an image and matching backing paper from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Christmas Cards CD. The snowflake border die is from Sue Wilson's Festive Collection by Creative Expressions.





I printed out a matching insert and then used a wood mounted rubber stamp from Inkadinkado for the greeting. I then spent the rest of the day singing it to myself lol.

Here is a link to a Frank Sinatra version 


I had some images left over so used one to decorate the back of the card.

Christmas Treat Boxes

I can't believe that another year is nearly over and I've been busy making Christmas Treat Boxes ready for meeting up with girlfriends for our Christmas get together.

 


There is space in the body and the head for treats

#124 - Anything Goes

This time it is my turn to host the challenge at CD Sunday Plus.

Here is my card.   



The backing paper is from Vintage Christmas CD by Crafter's Companion and the main image is from Enchanted Christmas CD by Joanna Sheen. This lovely image of the snow people is one of my favourites from this CD.  

The ivy leaves are from Crafter's Companion
.

The greeting is from Hunkydory's 'Just my Type Christmas Sentiment Strip Pad'.

The greeting reminded me of this song - 
'Baby It's Cold Outside'

#123 - Anything Goes

It's Margaret's turn to host the challenge this fortnight at CD Sunday Plus.




I used two matching backing papers from the Magical Christmas Moments CD by Cupcake Crafting and a robin from the Fledglings die set by two Red Robins along with the corresponding download. 

The two holly circle dies are by Sweet Dixie from the Circular Holly Frame Set. I added flat backed beads by Kort and Godt to the inner frame. I bought these beads from Joanna Sheene's website many years ago and they come in handy to add small details. 

The Merry Christmas die is by Gemini Expressions from Crafter's Companion. 

I had some papers left over so decided to decorate the back of the card as well.
