Bah! Humbug! Challenge #5
Hi everyone, how lovely to be back with you all again, I'm just quickly popping on to post my card for this week's challenge at Bah! Humbug!
This was a challenge blog that I really wanted to support, partly because it's run by some crafting friends of mine and partly so I didn't have so many Christmas cards to make at the last minute this year. Unfortunately, this is the first time I've managed to get a card done since Challenge #1, but I'm hoping to join in regularly from now on.
This week's theme is 'Holly' and I'm submitting this card which is destined for a very special person next Christmas. I love this little girl, she's so sweet.
* Image - Cardmaking Heaven download kit 'Holly Girl'
* Papers - Hot off the Press
* Corners - Cuttlebug 'Vintage'
* Glitter - Stickles 'Crystal Ice'
* Everything else from my stash
I've just noticed another Christmas card challenge Fab's Big Christmas Cards Challenge. The theme is 'Punch it and Bling it I don't know that this card is perfect for the challenge, but it does have some 'bling' on it (sparkle on the corner and little red gems for the holly berries) so I'm hoping it fits.
I'd like to thank all of you who sent me good wishes, e-mails and cards. I really appreciate your support and wanted you to know that it certainly helped me through the worst times.
I'm planning on entering a few of my favourite challenges from now on and, of course, my DT challenges. I shall be taking things a little slowly for a while, as my brain is still a bit fuzzy and I don't seem to have a lot of ideas, but I've missed you all so much and I'm looking forward to getting back to crafting and blogging again.
