X is for X-rated Xmas.

Sorry to say my offering isn't very X rated, but it's a bit snarky. Challenge #150 is the last Challenge for 2019.  For my card I pulled out a Christmas "girlfriends" stamp from Art Impressions , and used a snarky sentiment from a clear "Wine Not" set from Creative Expressions, there are 20 wine related  sentiments, so look for more in 2020 they are perfect for the AI girlfriends.

I coloured with alcohol markers and paper-glazed the eyeglasses and berries. I also did a bit of fancy die-cutting to make her fit in the size oval I had. I think it adds some interest to the image.

Finished the inside with a Stampendous sentiment.

Look at the Awesome graphic our fantastic Lee made for the challenge.

Thanks for visiting today and head over to the main blog and check out the rest of the design team cards some are totally X-rated.

Happy Holidays!!

New challenge at Shopping Our Stash, Donna is our hostess this challenge and it will be the last challenge for 2019 we will be back January 7, 2020.  The crew at SOS wants to know how you celebrate this time of the year. Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Omisoka or any other December celebration.

Of course I would pick a House Mouse stamp for my card, I love this stamp it's Maxwell giving gifts to the little guys. As you see I'm a Merry Christmas greeter. I added stickles to Maxwell's hat, coat and to the snow. I die cut the image and the red layer with wonky rectangles. 

The sentiment stamp was a prize I won at the Jingle Belles and I love it, fabulous stamp for my horizontal cards, it's the only "new" thing on my card, everything else is "old" and most of it was using scraps.

I'm adding this to:

Happy Holidays from me and the rest of the SOS team, see you in 2020.

It's a Jingle Belles Banner Holiday!!

I can't believe it's December it seems the days fly by. We have just had our first ICE storm on Sunday which meant I stayed home and crafted and managed to put my card together (I had the parts cut, lost,
found and I had help with the losing part) I must put a picture of my crafting helper on my blog. Back to the Jingle Belles challenge it's a really neat one....use the header as your inspiration. I love the look of the banner so I was inspired to make a card to replicate the banner with the exception I added a Merry Christmas.

I love the white on white but I needed to add a pop of red in the form of a Merry Christmas sticker.
The frame is spellbinders fleur dis lis rectangle, snowflakes were bought from a friend, the pearl flourish is ages old (hard to work with too) from Dollarama. The stag is from a Impression Obsession .

Close up of the sicker sentiment and pearls

The sentiment I won from the Jingle Belles and I love it. I added a flurry of snowflakes to the inside. 

I must apologize for the dark pictures I am not sure if it's my camera or the photographer, I have an ottlite and a photo box so I'm not sure what is the problem unless it's the really dull day.

It's Christmas Kickstart Time!!!

Well Challenge #24 at Christmas Kickstart Challenge is just about over, I checked and I still have 19 hours so just under the wire. The prompt is  Show Us Your Santas.  I have a few Santas but I coloured and fussy cut this one when I was at the cottage in the summer but never had a chance to use it, until I saw it today.

I can really call this card "using your scraps" even the snowflake layer and the Merry Christmas were scraps, Santa is from Bugaboo Stamps I might have won it in a draw or it might have been a Friday Freebie. I can thank Pinterest for the card design, 

More scraps on the inside and a Impression Obsession sentiment.

I'm entering this in:
