Christmas Club Challenge #11 - Humour

Hi Crafters,

Happy Sunday!
Just so you know what day it is, lol.

 I struggled a little trying to find something that fitted the theme. My first choice is further down my post as this is my sense of humour I'm afraid but not to everyone's taste so then I had second thoughts and decided on this rubber stamp from Whipper Snapper.

Rubber Stamp - Whipper Snapper Designs - All Tangled Up
Coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Craft Sensations - Vintage Christmas
& First Edition - Christmas Wishes
Unbranded Scalloped Frame Die
Cheery Lynn Snowflake Dies
Sizzix Tab Die
Sentiment Stamp - Crafters Companion - Rudolph & Friends Set

The wood background paper had a lovely copper foiling on the grain so I went with that colour for my snowflakes too. I added some glossy accents to the Christmas lights and Rudolph's nose.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #491 ATG Christmas
Christmas Craft Creations - Use a Die Cut
Sweet Stampers - #44 Animals/Birds
Sparkles Monthly Challenge - #128 Use a Real Stamp (no digi)
Colour Crazy Challenge - #20 Colouring Challenge

And this is my first offering that was relegated to the 'not sure' pile.
It's a digital download from CraftsUprint.

And with that I will let you enjoy your Sunday x.

Christmas Card Club Challenge #10 - Christmas Door/Window

Hi Crafters,

Well that was a shock when I came to write this post, when did Blogger decide to change it's format?
That threw me, I don't really like change, so lets see how we get on with this post.
(thanks to everyone for the help with this, apparently there is a click button to revert back to the old version, which I will probably do for now - some of the new features are better but as with all things, some are not I feel)
It's time for our fortnightly challenge and Margaret has chosen the theme of Christmas Door / Window.

I created this scene using an Xcut Die set called Georgian Door, two Gemini Embossing folders, a Martha Stewart Punch and a little Distress ink.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #489 ATG/ Include a Tree or 2
Unicorn Challenge - #54 Use Dies
Simon Says Stamp - Use Dies and or Punches
 Fezziwigs Festive Challenge - #10 Anything Festive Goes
Crimbo Crackers - #210 Die Cuts

Thanks for joining me today and I'll see you again soon,
