I've really enjoyed making this card. No doubt knowing what I wanted to do helped although, I did have a bit of a change at the planning stage that turned out to be part of the fun. It's for 6 challenges:

Bah! Humbug! - Holly
Sketch and Stash - my new stash is the image and the promarkers, neglected stash is the happy christmas sticker
Cooking It Up With Katie - the recipe this time is "home or family theme, punch something and use a sticker." The sticker is the greeting, the snowflakes are punched..............and the family theme..........I'm probably pushing my luck a bit here, but Christmas and little 'uns go hand in hand don't they - and I'll send this one to a family member. Hope that fits Katie.
Fab's Big Christmas - bling it or punch it - this one does both and is a 2nd entry.
Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Seasons - winter (just in case you didn't guess!)
DP2 - as I've just bought my first couple of Mo's images, I had to check this one out and this is where the little change at the planning stage came in. This week's theme is 'wood' or 'would'. In my case it's the polished wood of the frame and the woodgrain red bp - and that's where the fun came in, fitting wood into a Christmas card!

The holly frame and woodgrain bp are both from Crafty Ann's.

Thank you for your visit today.

  2. Ann,
    Of course it fits!
    I love that image from Mo and you turned it into such a sweet card!
    I love the embossed borders and the touches of gold.

  3. What a fabulous card Ann and well done on making it fit with Mo's current challenge (clever girl!)
    I'm so glad you've found Mo's images, was it anything to do with me constantly using them, sort of 'if you can't beat 'em, join 'em'? lol!
