I'm in real Christmas card mode at the moment - this is the first of 3 Christmas cards I've got done over the last 3 days. I'll be entering it into 3 challenges but the first one I'm going to mention is Bah! Humbug! where the theme is Christmas Food. The only stamps I have that feature Christmas food are very small ones so I decided to draw a new digi to fill the gap. I've called this one Santa's Treats with his mince pie and a drop of egg nog. He's been very polite too and left a note of thanks! This last bit comes from my past - when my daughters were small, my Dad came over each Christmas eve after they had gone to bed to put their presents under the tree, and ate the mince pie and drank the wee tot of rum they left out for Santa as they went upstairs, then left a note of thanks in Santa's name. My mother was always the one to write birthday cards etc, so they didn't know his handwriting. They used to look for the note that was left on the plate with the crumbs and the remnants of the rum when we went downstairs on Christmas morning and were always thrilled when they found it!
The main bp is from the 8x8 Gold Collection and the other two are from the new Crinkle Collections. The central mat has been created using one of the unlined journalling labels and backed with a piece of hand made glitter paper from papermania - the photo isn't doing this paper justice I have to say - the sparkle is fabulous. The sentiment is computer generated and added to the gold bp before printing and the only other embellishments are the 3 home made 'brads' that I punched out of a scrap of the glitter paper. Everything apart from the glitter paper is from Crafty Ann's.
The other two challenges my card is for are:
