Christmas Noel

I know, I know, you're probably all tired of seeing Christmas cards by now! I promise this is my last one for the year! LOL

We have a new challenge at Craft Your Passion. Christmas is this week, so we just had to ask you to see your Christmas cards, this week! I know many of you are still doing those last minute cards, so this is your chance to show off those last minute Christmas cards before you put them in the mail, or hand deliver them. We hope you'll stop by Craft Your Passion, this week, and play along with us for a chance to win an image of your choice from Lauretta's Digital Stamps and CocoDingo.

My card layout is the sketch at The Pixie Cottage. I just had to use it for my card layout when I seen it. This sketch made a fantastic card and was so much fun to use! My image is from CocoDingo and is colored with Promarkers. Of course, I had to add glitter and sparkle using my clearstar gelly roll pen, since it's a Christmas card! All papers and ribbon are from my stash. The Christmas ticket is by Stitchy Bear Stamps, and is mounted with foam mounting tape, for dimension. I've used the branch punch by Martha Stewart, to make branches of greenery for the upper left corner of the image. I finished the corner of the image with a few skittles (or Dew Drops) dyed with Cranberry color alcohol Ink.

I love the way this card turned out!

I made this card especially for my close friend, Dan, who I met online years ago. We've been friends for about 8 years.

  3. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
