Firstly thank you to everyone who entered our spots and stripes challenge last week the winners are on the blog at Fab n Funky.
As it is the last Wednesday of the month the theme is Christmas and we are being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine this week and have been given some beautiful digi's to play with.
I used Santa's List for my card below and you can buy it here
I coloured him using ordinary coloured pencils and then fussy cut around him. The paper was from a pad I got as a freebie with a magazine and I die cut a circle from gold card and an inverted scalloped circle from white card which I edged with dark green using a Spectrum Noir JG5. I matted the paper onto plain white card that had been coloured round the edges with JG5. The sentiment was computer generated and I just used a handwriting font and typed out the lyrics of the song. I cut round this edged with the green pen and then mounted it onto gold card. The finishing touches were the three large green brads.
I am entering this card into the following challenge

- I have been crafting since May 2008, when in desperation to find an unusual birthday card for my Mum, I gave up looking in the shops and decided to have a go at making my own. I soon realised that crafting is addictive and I haven't brought a card since. In 2011 I completed my certificate in papercrafting as a result of the work I did as part of the course I started entering challenges on line and in magazines. I applied for design teams and also started making samples for Ooh La La Creations for their shows on Create and Craft. I have now completed my Diploma in professional crafting and most recently been runner up in the Papercrafter of the Year 2013 a competition run by Papercraft essentials magazine, I don't have a particular style I like to use elements from lots of styles and techniques, although I do love all things vintage. In 2014 I started to move more towards scrapbooking to take care of the huge family archive of photographs that were stored in my attic. I have continued cardmaking and Scrapbooking through 2015 and 2016 but have also become interested in off the page projects. I hope to be able focus on these in the future.
