Christmas challenge at fab'n'Funky

Good morning all

It's that week of tthe month again at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

our once a month ' Christmas' challenge

I have to admit that Christmas cards are my very favourite thing to make - after all it's the most wonderful time of the year! and they're always such happy cards
.....and I've got such a lot of Christmas stash that I never really struggle when it comes to ideas

I bought these lovely dies in the pre Christmas sale at Sizzix - I loved them when they were launched the Christmas before - but they were such a bargin having waited a year
 -I think I ejoyed them even more : ))))))
and lets face it it's Christmas no matter which year you buy them

This is what I did....

Dies  -Freshbaked #1 by Sizzix
Papers - a very old set from Papermania
Kraft card
assorted scraps of coloured card and glitter ard
Sentiment - Crafter's Companion ( I think!)

Hope you'll joi i with our challenge this week

Happy New year! MerryChristmas!

Good morning all

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year!
We had a break over on the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog until last week and I had intended to start off the year with our new challenge , unfortunately my blog year didn't get off to a very good start as our internet went down last week with what BT termed -' a major fault', we were down until Friday so  I just decided to write off the week and start back this week with our  new challenge set by our lovely Monika

She has chosen the theme 


it seemed to me to be a great opportunity to get off to a flying start with this year's Christmas cards - so here we go with Christmas card number one for 2020!!!

I made the task fairly simple by using an image from one of the Hunky Dory little books, there are 4 of each image in the book and I've already used one of these images before, its so pretty and delicate - as well as being very cute - a perfect little angel

This is what I did.....

Image - from Hunky Dory little book
Silver mirri card and blue card from Crafter's Companion
Poinsettia die - Memory box
Merry Christmas die - Crafter's Companion
Paper - an old LOTV paper pad
Gems and ribbon from my stash

I hope you'll come over and join in with our chalenge this week!

Hapy new Year and merry Christmas
