Bah! Humbug! Challenge #3

I can't believe I'm doing another Christmas card but here is this weeks card for the Bah! Humbug! challenge. The theme this week is glitter so no problem there after all we all love a bit of glitter. This is a tent fold card and I have used the same backing paper as the card I did last week, waste not want not and all that. The image is a digi stamp coloured with Promarkers and I have used glitter on his hat, also the tree on the bottom left is glittered. The whole thing is finished off with a red crosgrain bow, I am going to have a box just for Christmas cards and with luck come December it will be quite healthy.

Precious Petals calendar

I made myself a calendar for work using the precious petals cd from Joanna Sheen, my work mate saw it and wanted one so I made her this, the backing paper is from the newest cd In Other Words, sorry yet another grotty picture but you can get the idea. I used an A4 piece of board which I cut a strip of the end to make the stand, I used my big bite to put the eyelets in to hold the stand on and also to hold the piece of ribbon in between the stand and board so that it doesn't stretch too far and fall over. She was thrilled with it and then I had to make a third one for another friend but it was slightly different, just as pretty though.

Week #2 for the Bah Humbug challenge

This is my attempt at the 2nd challenge from Bah Humbug! I missed the first one but am determined to have a go at as many as I can and it will be very helpful at the end of the year. This time the challlenge was something new but not just for Christmas so my new thing is the Precious Petals cd and this is where the backing paper has come from.

I have scanned the card and because the snowflakes have pearls on top of them some light has come in and it looks a little blurred, must get back to taking proper photo's.

Easel type card

Just made this from the newest cd from Joanna Sheen, I was so taken with how pretty this image is that I wanted to use it straight away. Sorry it looks a bit squiffy but it is straight just my lousy photo taking. I used one of the toppers and also the patchwork toppers which do have a little of the flower in so I thought it went rather well, as you can see the two little pieces of matting on the top have some gingham on, this is just fastened at the back of the card with an extra piece tied in a knot.

Off now to try and finish my card for the Bah Humbug challenge.
