Merry Christmas One and All!

My computer's been down all week so I didn't think I'd get this made, never mind posted! (Big kiss to my wonderful hubby!) I'll have to keep it short so I'll give you a quick run down of what I've used and the challenges it's for.
Items used:

  • Mottled stone, tartan, silver and polished stone backing papers from Crafty Ann's
  • Blank Snowglobe from Crafty Ann's and Labrador puppy present from Patti's Creations. Both of these are part of the images supplied for round 9 of the CDAC progressive challenges. For full details see the post below this one
  • 3D Short petal flower from Crafty Ann's
  • Silver ribbon and silver peel off

Hope the festive season is all you could wish for!

CDAC Progressive Challenge #9

We've reached the next round of the CDAC Progressive Challenges. Each challenge lasts for 6 rounds with a grand prize drawn at the end. The way it works is that we sign up (it's free to do so) to take part at the start of each 'batch' and are provided with 5 images to work with. As long as we enter at least one card using at least one of the images we will get the 5 for the next round and so on. The good thing is that if we miss a round or decide to join in after it has started, we can buy back in for just $1 - great value.
This time around is slightly different and among the images are a couple of blank snow globes that we can team up with any images in our stash so they can be for anything not just Christmas cards. I've done a Christmas card here but plan to do more with non Christmas images too, as soon as I get chance. We have a month so hopefully I should manage it! ;o)

For this one I've used the blank Snow globe from Crafty Ann's and put one of the other images that's part of the package this time into it. It's Button Bear from Digi stamps 4 joy. He looks completely jiggered after decorating his tree, bless him! I couldn't bring myself to disturb him so I've just left his glittery snow sitting in the bottom instead of shaking it up! lol! I've paper pieced the base of the globe and the two bps are from Crafty Ann's. The snowflake adorning the corner is a Kanban one that was part of a prize I won - I'll be looking out for some more of these.

I'm also entering my card into these challenges:

Thank you for stopping by at this busy time.

CDAC Progressive Challenge

I'm dashing to get this entry into the CDAC Progressive Challenge round 8 before the deadline. There's a couple of days yet, but I'm at the stage of needing 48 hour days so don't want to leave it any longer. The image is Bakster Helps from Just Some Lines coloured with promarkers and I just couldn't resist the caption which is computer generated. As I'm still a dinosaur when it comes to books I think I'm going to use this tag as a bookmark. It'll make me smile every time I open my book anyway :-)

Well, it's challenge #55 at CACB and our final challenge of the year - gulp! These years go by ever more quickly and it's getting scary! Our challenge this time is Bingo/Tic Tac Toe, call it what you will. You can choose any line - horizontal, vertical or diagonal - or go for the 4 corners it's up to you.

I've gone for the far right vertical line for mine. There are bows on the garland and I think the rest is self explanatory. This is the money/voucher wallet that I've designed for this year, the gold garland and silver bp are both from Crafty Ann's. The gold book plate where I've added the greeting is part of something I'm working on but not available just yet.
I'm also entering my wallet into these challenges:
Thank you for your visit today and I hope you'll pop over and join us for our final challenge of the year and help to make it extra special.
