So who wants to be cute for Christmas?

We do over at The Cutie Pies!

Hello blogworld

As you may have guessed we've got a new challenge for you at the Cuties and we'd like to see your cutest Christmas creations going!  You've also got extra time to enter the challenge as this one is going to run over Christmas and into the New Year - 10th December to 6th January to be precise!  But don't run away from the blog - check back at Christmas and you will find a lovely Cutie Pie extra Christmas present.

This challenge we have Di's Digis sponsoring us :

with the prize being a $10 voucher for the lucky winner.

So this is the image that I coloured for another project and had to abandon - still I don't mind as it actually turned out really well - I think! - in the end.

Here you go, see what you think.

I used:

Kanban - Betsie Bob magic of Christmas (had to have this stamp when I saw it, it's Emily to a T!)
coloured with my Promarkers

Memory Box - Snowflake

Now there's a thing - they are all scraps and bits of really ancient papers and I've no idea whose they are.

Anything else?
Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima Flowers
Blingy things from the candy I won from Lisa
Heart doily was a birthday present
Seam binding and bobbly trim from my stuff
Viva Decor Pearl Pen
MDF present embellishment

It's a big card this one - 8x8!  Dictated by the size of the stamp, I hadn't realised when I brought the set just how big it is!!  Still doesn't matter, it's for SHMbO and she'll appreciate that it's a big card!

Hope to see you over at the Cuties!


A challenge, or two:

Sketch n Stash: Challenge 102 - by Sue.  My stash are the papers, flowers and bobbly trim.  The stamp is a newbie - slap wrist!!

Christmas Card Challenges: 2013  Christmas Card Challenge Week #2 - die cuts (the snowflake)

Eclectic Ellapu: Challenge 9 - Jolly and Bright

I love Promarkers: #146 - Anything Goes

Passion for ProMarkers: Mega Christmas challenge

Christmas at Sweet Stampin: Challenge #1 - Anything Goes: Hello everyone - had to show my support (not that you need it - going well I see!) for your new challenge.  Best of luck, and this will definitely be the only time - until next December - you see me!!! Mwahh!!
