CRAFTY HO's HOLIDAY CHALLENGE

Good morning!  Is it snowing where-ever you live?  We probably have an inch or 2 on the ground - it's enough to look pretty but not make driving completely treacherous.  There's a NEW CHALLENGE this week at CRAFTY HOs' CHALLENGE BLOG.  Our challenge this week is HOLIDAY - it can be ANY HOLIDAY, not just Christmas.  However, I did chose to make a Christmas card because I couldn't resist using these ADORABLE images from CHI CHI MEMORIES.  I hope you will join our CRAFTY HOs' this week - you have until 11:59pm Saturday, December 11 to link up your card on the blog.

I followed an old sketch from CHI CHI MEMORIES for my card.  I used star trim that I found at Michael's.  Papers are Basic Grey DP, sparkly dark red from Marco's paper.  I used a Quickutz die for the circles, a Nellie's die for the image cut out and a Nestie that I moved around for the sentiment which is from Our Craft Lounge.


I used 2 different images from CHI CHI MEMORIES Christmas set.  I colored Candace and Freddie with Copics and Atyou Spicas, used Stickles, Liquid Applique and Puff Embossing powder (Freddie's antlers) to decorate them.  Hope you like it!!  Would love to know what you think:)

Other challenges entered include:
2 SISTERS - sparkly Christmas
CRAFT YOUR DAYS AWAY - texture
ELLEPHANTASTIC - red and green
MARK'S FINEST PAPERS - red and green
SECRET CRAFTER - Christmas
PRAIRIE FAIRY FRIDAYS - use a star
