#224 Christmas

This is our last challenge for 2018 so that the team can have a well deserved break. We will be back on 14th January, and so we would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2019. Thank you for sharing all your fabulous projects with us and we look forward to seeing many more in the New Year.

Mary is hosting today's challenge, Christmas

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Winter Fun theme.
We do, for a change, have a lovely prize on offer to our winner. It's two gorgeous Becky Seddon photopolymer stamps on a Christmas/Winter theme, with two stencils in the same theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT


I have used a House Mouse decoupage sheet from Joanna Sheen. After attaching it to red rad I outlined the image using strios of gold peel off and then added more gold peel off items to the left hand side of the card.


I've used a Woodware stamp set, and coloured the tree with Promarkers. The frame uses a die set from Cheery Lynn, and I embossed a panel of the card blank using a folder which was a magazine freebie. I've gently inked the panel with yellow Versacolor ink.


I made this card for one of my grandson's for Christmas. I thought he would love this crazy snowman. I coloured him with copics and pencil crayons then added snow, snowflakes, a sentiment, Nuvo crystal drops, and Wink of Stella.


I made this card with one of my Masterboards which was created using a Paper Artsy stencil and Distress Oxides then added a snowflake die cut topper, sentiment and completed it with a few drops of Stickles Glitter glue. Hope you all have a really lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year xXx


I get all carded out at Christmas - so a quick and easy card is a bonus! My CAS card was made using an embossing folder and one of the new Hunkydory topper deck cards and rainbow mirri card.


I used three layers of paper on my card. A couple were cut to size and the top one was simply torn. A piece of lace was added in between two of the layers. The cluster consists of a piece of gauze, Die cut branches, Berries, two tiny Pine Cones and the flower.

Hoping you all have a wonderful Christmas and wishing everyone all the very best for 2019.


I used one the super cute "Polar Pals" by Sunny Studios and the wonderful
cover plate die by Your Next Stamp. Happy crafting, everyone ;o)


A card for a little grand nephew, for all the details, see my blog.


My card is a combination of Sue Wilson dies, lots of glitter and foiling. Please see my blog for more details.

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!
