Challenge #198 - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a Merry little 

Christmas....pull out all the stops and 

show us your most fabulous Christmas 

creations.


You have plenty of time to link up below

 in our comments, this challenge doesn't 

close until December 27.




I am, by the time you read this, winging my

way to my grandson and happily leaving 

the cold of my own home.  (Hah!)

Before I left though, I made a "hanging" for 

want of a better word, using all sorts of

 bits and pieces from my stash. 

 Amost all images used are from Gecko

 Galz, with the exception of the mod Xmas 

tree and the penguin.

I hope you have the best Christmas ever

and that we continue to share our art with 

you in the coming year! 


Chat Noir here, from the beginning of a sunny summer's day on the opposite side of the world..........

I was hoping to show off some Christmas cards, but once again I can only display good intentions,so I started on a set of ATCs that I can add to cards if I ever get around to making them. And if I don't, I'll have lots of little treasures to tuck into the parcels instead.

   

 I love the faded colours and the old-fashioned images.

  Deena here:I have been busy making and mailing cards this past couple of weeks and here are a few that I have completed (there are at least 4 of each kind made...most of them, I made 6 of cuz that was how the paper divided up nicely - about 50 cards or so...I am soooo done with Christmas cards right now....I am putting it all away until next October)....play along with us, will you? Oh, and have a super awesome Christmas season!

Challenge #197 - Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!!

Poobah Deena wants you to be influenced by SNOW in all its forms:

FLUFFY, WHITE, SPARKLING, COLD, BLOWING, LACY, LOVELY SNOW
(There's plenty of ways to look at SNOW)

So, the theme is:



Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!!




Electra  here.  I used digital stamps and collage sheets from Gecko Galz, and made something that could have come from the North Pole!


Deena here:
Brrrr...with all the snow storms in the States and the cold weather here, I thought snow men would be a good idea with this challenge...I like the way these two projects turned out the same but completely different by adding some background paper....



Chat Noir here, and I have to tell you, snow is a foreign concept in my part of the world!!  But I can imagine, so I put myself in my favourite childrens book ("The Snowman" by Raymond Briggs) and dreamed a little.  These snowflakes are drifting down in the night sky, glittering in the moonlight and shining like jewels.


and now its your turn....
So from now until December 13th, we want to see what you make of SNOW.

Just create and then add your blog post link below in our comments!
