Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #309

Sorry, I was AWOL last week, winter lurgies got the better of me, but I'm back and looking forward to getting some crafting done during the Christmas break.
It's time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge and it's the last one of the year as we take a break until the New Year. We have two great sponsors this week, Bugaboo and Di's Digi Stamps and our theme is "Anything goes" especially if in my head you add mulled wine to it!
I used the fun tropical Santa surfing image from Bugaboo for my card this week, perfect for friends who live in warmer climes.
I used the tattered lace side stepper card die for the base and built it up with the mat dies included in yellow and two shades of blue card. I created the waves with a clearly besotted die (so looking forward to them re-opening in the new year). I coloured in the Santa image simply with my beloved copics and fussy cut him out and added him to the card. The sentiment is a tattered lace die and I also die cut some holly (no idea who made that die) to add to the card. I finished off with some polar white flower soft on his hat and some glamour dust on the waves to finish. Simples!

Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge

*Apologies, Blogger failed to post this scheduled post for yesterday*
Wow, Wednedsay again and December tomorrow!
Time for our new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge. This week we have an easy theme for you - Anything goes! We also have great prizes on offer from our two fab sponsors, the Stamping Boutique and Nikki Burette.
I used this fun image from the Stamping Boutique and coloured it with my face copics and die cut it with tattered lace decorative rectangles. I also used some tattered lace sentiments and snowflakes from their snowglobe set. I layered it up with silver mirri and paper from an unknown Christmas pad (?my minds eye, that I bought at TK Maxx a couple of years ago. A little glitter to highlight the snow and some nuvo drops to finish.
