Merry Christmas

Hi Folks
Not much longer to go before the big day.  All my pressies are now bought and nearly all wrapped.  Just got a couple more special cards to make and then I am done.  Still got most of the food shopping to be done but I finish work on Friday so plenty of time over the weekend to do that.  Feeling quite chilled about it now.

Today sees the start of our last challenge for 2012 over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  The design team is having a little break and our first challenge of 2013 will start on 2nd January.
We have two fab sponsors for this challenge:
Bugaboo - 7 free digi images of the winners choice
Dustin Pike - $10 certificate

I suspect we may get lots of entries as our theme for this challenge is:


I used a super little image from Bugaboo for my creation.

Such a cute little image that I coloured using promarkers.  I also added a little glamour dust to their little hats.  Used some glitter paper for the background.  Added a paper christmas tree with lots of pearls and gems, a sentiment and a punched out snowflake.  Some card candi in each corner brought it all together.

For more fabulous inspiration just pop on over to Penny's and check out the design team creations.  Such talented teamies.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Catch the Bug - Bingo challenge (Pearl, Bugaboo image, sentiment)
