SS 494: Fred She Said

It's the last Sketch Saturday challenge before our Christmas break and it IS quite the challenge!  I decided to change the shape from a circle to a square and went with it.

We are sponsored by Fred She Said this week.  They are providing a $10 GC to use on their site.

Since I still have 9 more Christmas cards to finish ("I think I can, I think I can" finish before the holiday!) I made another Christmas card.

Why don't you join in the fun?

Bugaboo BINGO!!

It's time for another round of Bingo over on the Catch The Bug blog.  This month's bingo board is super challenging!

I chose to go with the bottom row: twine, 2 images merged and blue.

I had never merged images before this month, but it wasn't terribly difficult.  The only thing I didn't notice prior to printing was that two snowflakes were layered on top of each other.  It looks a bit messy but oh well, next time ...

I used Three Penguins and added in Candy Cane Penguin to make a 4 penguin family.  I love the way my card turned out.

Come join the fun.

Christmas Chaos: Make it Funny!

It's Day 5 of the Christmas Chaos challenge over on the Catch The Bug blog.  It's Humor Me Wednesday, so we want to see your funny projects.  Take a look at the picture below.  It's only to get you started but you don't necessarily need to use on your project!

For my card I used the Bugaboo image: Stella - Santa Called.  I just love Stella and her sassy attitude.

Why don't you join in the fun!

The Male Room: Masculine Christmas
Double D Challenges: Red White and a pop of  

SSW2-127 DigiStamp Boutique

I'm back again to let you know that we have another fantastic challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.

We have Sally-Ann returning from DigiStamp Boutique as our sponsor.  She will be giving our winner a £10 voucher to her store.  I'm using one of her new images: Stocking Milly.  Isn't she just the sweetest?!!

When I created my card, I didn't realize that I made the wrong shape for the center; it shouldn't have been a fishtail but the inverse.  Oh well, it's close enough!  Sigh.  I guess I need to pay closer attention to the sketch before I get my creative groove on.

It's still a darn cute card.  Why don't you try YOUR hand at the sketch this week!

Christmas Chaos: Stella Says Sketch

It's Sunday and time for a new sketch over on the Catch The Bug blog.  The sketch is a good one so I'm certain to use it again.

My project uses the Bugaboo image: Moose Ornaments ... it's also a "good one!" that I use over and over again.

Playing along with ALL the Chaos Challenges will result in many opportunities to win.  Why don't you join in?!!

And SPEAKING of playing along, I'm joining in the challenges over on the Card Mania site: their theme is Christmas
and the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies site: you must use a critter on your card.

Christmas Chaos: Merry & Bright

Today's challenge over on the Catch The Bug: make something using the theme - Merry and Bright.  My card using one of the new Bugaboo releases: 3 Snowmen.

They sure look like they are having a merry old time.  For the bright, I added the sentiment and some sparkle to the snowflakes.
