Ho Ho Oh No!
Another Friday and a new challenge over at Daring Cardmakers, and this week it's Jo's turn to set the dare which is - brace yourselves - Father Christmas. I admit this was a shock to the system making this in June, as I'm more of a November/December girl lol. At least I have a micro head start!
And also this week we have another lovely prize to give away, kindly donated by the fabulous Crafty Emma's Store - which is a real treat to browse and buy from so please take a minute to click the link and see for yourself all the treasures Emma stocks.
As always the winner will be chosen at random, then as long as our simple rules have been adhered to this fab Echo Park 6x6 paper pad could be winging it's way to you
1. Make a card for this week's challenge and share it on your blog, leave us a link or a comment on this post
2. Your post must mention and contain links to Crafty Emma's Store and also The Daring Cardmakers
3. To qualify for the prize you may only link your card to 5 other challenges
Now I love kitsch Chritmas cards, and red and aqua are a fave festive colour combination of mine, and I am obsessed with candy canes and peppermint swirls ;) I've used a fab digi paper (see below for details) and a cute little K&Co Santa. For the Ho Ho Ho, the 'O's are twirled twine wrapped in cellophane to resemble peppermint swirls and layered them onto sewn paper strips. All finished off with a big bow and die cut corrugated star and of course a little pom pom!
