Christmas Card Club Challenge #25 - 'All I Want for Christmas'

Hi Everyone, hope you are well and have managed to make a start, if not finished your Christmas shopping and card making. I have a little more to do but feel quite good about how organised I am with my Christmas cards this year and it is all down to belonging to this great Christmas Card Club and the incentive it gives me to make Christmas cards all year through. So thank you very much Margaret for running this lovely group and all the other friendly members who I have come to know very well over this last year, I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
Now back to business... this time was Asha's turn to choose a theme and she gave us 'All I Want for Christmas'. Now having gotten to know the group well I am sure they won't be offended by my card this time, it is a little tongue in cheek, but I thought it was very funny, albeit a bit saucy, here goes...

Recipe
Pre-coloured Image - Unknown, sorry
Paper - DCWV
Stampin' Up Pleated Ribbon
Papermania Poinsettias
Mei-Flower Pearls
SB Ribbon Banner Die
Stickles
I have had this image stored on my computer for ages just waiting for the right moment and I think, this is it. It was such a long time ago that I acquired this image, before I started to keep a record of where things came from, that I have no idea so I can't give credit, sorry. It is also decoupaged, perhaps this next picture showing it at a slight angle makes it more apparent.  The sentiment inside the card carries on from the front with '...is YOU!'

Challenges
Scribble & Scrap - #32 Anything Goes
TTCRD - Anything Goes
A Creative Romance - Something Old (Digital Image)
Crafty Catz - #257 Anything Goes
 
A list of all the members in our little group is in the CCC tab at the top of my blog, please go and take a look at their lovely creations. We have one more challenge on the 14th December before we break for Christmas and then we will be back in the New Year with some more great challenge themes. Why don't you play along with us and by Christmas 2015 you too will have all if not most of your cards already made!
See you soon,
 
Lorraine

Eeeek! I LOVE it, Lorraine. Why oh why did I change the theme? You've done a great job. So sorry for the confusion and I'm glad you stuck to your guns and made this mind-blowing, heart-racing number. Thank you so much, my friend!

Love it (him) Lorraine, brightened up my day. I too had this theme written down but was running late making my card so saw all the comments yesterday. Carol x

Hazel said...

This really did make me smile, Lorraine - made a change to silver bells!! x

MaryH said...

I had checked the themes right after the last challenge, and have been hunting for a PSX bell stamp I have. I didn't even realize there was a different challenge theme! This is such a fun & sassy card. Who wouldn't want this for Christmas????It's colored so beautifully, with such great embellies, and would make a perfect card for Mr. Somebody Special. Great job. I'm glad you got confused and shared this one!!! It made me smile & that's a good thing! TFS & Hugs.
