Good morning blog friends
Well I recon Jackie got it just about right when she set this weeks challenge over at
and winter it is!
Our first really cold day this year and I don't like it one little bit!
The best bit about this challenge is the really virtuous feeling I got having made my first Christmas card this year - I'm really full of good intentions(aren't we always at this time of year)
I'm going to try to make a Christmas card every other week for the rest of the year
Not even every week - I don't want to be too ambitious after all lol
We have two fabulous sponsors this week at Fab'n'Funky challenges
Our regular first prize sponsor
Who is regularly sponsoring our challenge this year with a special first prize
I chose a really cute digi fom
over at Whimsy Stamps
She is called
Raggedy Girl Sled and is available here
I was actually feeling a bit down about not making Christmas cards
- because no matter how busy it can be
they really are the very best cards to make
you can go totally OTT with the sparkle and bling like no other time of the year!!
So I decided to have a real glitter and sparkle fest with this one and I got to use those gorgeous glittery snowflakes that didn't even make it out of the box and onto my last years card - what a waste!
This is what I did....
Digi stamp - Raggedy girl sled from Stampart by Kathryne
Coloured with - Copics and Prismacolor pencils
Papers - recollections blue Christmas from Michaels
the blingy snow flakes and words are also from recollections
Die cut snowflakes - Dienamics dies
Die cut frame - spellbinders labels ten
Ribbon and check card from my stash
Pearl sticks - cut from pearl sticks from Wild orchid crafts
Glittered with - Diamond stickles
