Just a bit of fun for the Bah! Humbug! challenge

Over on the Bah! Humbug! blog this week the challenge is a winter scene, well I couldn't find any stamps that would fit the bill and didn't want to use a cd so I decided to have a bit of fun and play with the Cricut.

I painted the sky with the silkies and tried to make it uneven so it looked like it was snowfilled (yes I know a vivid imagination is needed here), I then took some glitter card and tore it to create the snow. All of the elements are cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge, I have never used the dolls on this but all the extra elements are very useful. I cut everything from 160gsm paper and coloured it in, the trees, moon and sleigh have been coloured with silkies and the reindeer and present sack with promarkers, I have put a bit of extra glue under the reindeer and sleigh and popped on a bit of extra glitter to give them a bit of something to stand on so they were not just floating. This probably won't go anywhere but I just had a bit of fun making it.


  1. Pleased you enjoyed our challenge so much this week - your card is terrific. I especially like the cute reindeer who're obviously waiting for Santa to come out from behind the trees and hook them up to the sleigh. Not sure what he nipped in there for ... but maybe he got 'caught short' LOL!
    Thank you for shring with us at Bah! Humbug!

  2. Just read Max's comment - oh dear trust Max to think Santa is busy in the trees !!! LOL
    The card is fab Jenny and isn't it great to just play sometimes like this - I love your finished result. Must use my Cricut again soon - need new mats though as the paper keeps slipping.
