Silhouette

Hi Crafters,

I have been so bad at blogging lately and my card photo folder is overflowing!
So to help with that I'm popping in with a quick post that fits a couple of challenges too.


Created with a combination of dies and my Silhouette Cameo and some patterned paper from my stash. I really love the colour combo on this background paper, wouldn't have thought to put it together myself, but I think it's really nice.

Christmas Card Club Challenge #8 - Humorous

Hi Crafters,

It's time once again to share my CCC card for this fortnight. It was Valery's turn to choose a theme and she has given us...

HUMOROUS


Now I don't know about you but every time I look at this image it makes me laugh, these funny, chubby dancing soldiers from Stamping Bella are just great. They remind me of watching your older relatives dancing at weddings etc, he, he :o)
I've coloured them with my Promarkers and used a stitched rectangle from Mama Elephant and a stitched scalloped border die for the accent colour. The sentiment came from the same stamp set.
