Chalet Christmas Card

i’m almost finished all the christmas projects i’ve been working on; hopefully i’ll be done by next week.

this is the card that i made a set of for my dad; his only request was for a ‘peace on earth’ sentiment so i chose this cling mount one from magenta. the chalet is a nellie snellen image that stamps beautifully; i coloured it with pencil crayons and for the first time i used a blue pan pastel for the sky.

i’m playing along with these challenges:

Holiday Bunny

card with bunny pulling sled holding reindeer on brown with white polka dot paper and red check paper trim; also a making spirits bright sentiment
i made this card for the sketch saturday challenge, and the jingle belles’ dashing through the snow theme. i coloured everything with distress ink pads, added stickles for the snow on the ground and flower soft for the tails and hat trim. i was inspired by stephanie’s card to use the red check with the kraft since i bought the simple stories handmade holidays paper during my last trip to my local stamp store. thanks stephanie and thanks for popping by.

Do You Have A Wish?

fairy with frog and make a wish sentiment
my wish is that my mojo would stop taking a break. in between medical appointments and my out of town daughter visiting with her two very cute bunnies, i haven’t had time to create much lately.  anyway, i watercoloured this image with distress inks and aquamarkers, used plenty of stickles on the wings and created this fan flower by hand scoring the paper strip; the hardest part was actually forming the flower and getting it to stick to the base. with my hands, i don’t think i’ll be making many of these, although i love how they look. thanks for popping by. i’m submitting this to the following challenges:
