My first christmas card in spring. Hi everyone, Wow, the very nice weather has kept me away from crafting, super super sunshine although too much in abundance makes me ill. Nevertheless my card is to cool down and look forward to christmas before spring has even sprung. I won this cute 'Ollie with gingerbread' stamp from Janet over at Pink Gems, Andy was gorgeous too but I needed something with a mouth and Janet said very kindly I could swap 'many thanks Janet'. Coloured with Promarkers, cut out, added the same stars he comes with on tiny foam pieces, yummy ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, paper is from Nikky's Creative Christmas paper boutique cd..gorgeous papers on there, buttons from Fantastic Ribbons, die cut round label from Baby Face dies and peel off sentiment from QVC long time ago and finished with remnant of red ribbon.
As this image is used for a christmas card the challenges entered are quite festive but I'm, sure Ollie can be used for an ordinary everyday card. Challenges entered are 10...Pink Gem Challenge 'sketch', Craft Your days 'men/boys & buttons', Sweet Stampin 'anything goes' as are Stampin for the weekend, Christmas Stampin. DYSU 'plaid', Crimbo Crackers 'cute', Winter Wonderland is a pic, Sparkles Forum Christmas 'peel-offs' and PaperPlaytime 'for the guys, add a sentiment'. So there you have it, for my christmas card box! Wishing you all some crafty time.
