Stampin' for the Weekend - Christmas!


OMG Christmas is almost here & I'm not ready yet (if only I could postpone just for a few days lol) - I'm sure I'll get there though :)  Next year I've decided I'm starting my preparations in January (hopefully making some pressies too!).  At least Stampin' for the Weekend's challenge helped me make another Christmas card as the challenge is "Christmas".  Our sponsor this time is Crafts and Me with an extra special prize of a 6 month DT spot!  For my card I used a fabulous image by Diane Carubia called Penguin Christmas Kiss which I coloured with ProMarkers.  The papers are digi & I finished off with glitter, gems, rickrack, greeting & various punched & die cut snowflakes. 

The challenges:
Let's Craft and Create - It's Christmas
Dutch Dare - Winter
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Pear Tree Designs - Christmas!
Glitterbabe - Snow and/or Snowflakes
