Bah Humbug!


Ok, I'm feeling relatively festive, but this digi so isn't :P And, after all, it's her card not mine, so she got to choose the sentiment ;)
The digi is Angelica by Simply Betty and the papers are part of a new set called Blue Christmas by Crafty Chaos Designs, which I'll put in the shop as soon as I've done the preview. Here are the challenges I made it for:
One Stitch At A Time - Christmas
Think Ink - blue silver and white
The Burtonesque Dolls - anything goes. This isn't based on a specific Burton film, but can't you see that digi as a TB character? Lol, she's the doll that you sit on top of your Christmas tree, but she doesn't want to be any more; she wants to fly and not have to remove pine needles from sensitive areas any more :P
City Crafter Challenges - use a digi
Critter Sketch Challenges - Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas, and my second tip for this week is, if you can't find the perfect sentiment, remember you can always create your own via your pc. Because sometime "Merry Christmas" just won't do ;)
Flutterby Wednesday - include a butterfly, angel or fairy
Really reasonable Ribbon - winter in blue silver white
DezinaWorld - song dance or music. I've had Rocking Around the Christmas Tree going through my head ever since I first started to think about this card, can someone PLEASE turn it off now? :P
Charisma Cardz - with love at Christmas. A card like this HAS to go to someone you love or it could be takenn the wrong way :)
Meljen's Design Challenges - use three different shapes. I've gone for rectangle, circle and oval
Raise the Bar - Let's see those curves. I have scallops, a circle, an oval, some swirly paper, and some ricrac in the ribbon flower
Fasionista Friday - blue
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Christmas in non-traditional colours. Hmmm, I'm hoping that traditional means red and green, and blue hasn't become such a popular alternative that it's now regarded as traditional as well
Simply Betty Challenges - followed the sketch
Bee Crafty Challenges - Christmas
Speedy The Cat's Friends' Challenges - holiday card
Elliephantastic Challenges - blue
Pattie's Creations Design Challenges - Christmas
