Christmas Card Throwdown - August theme




Here we are with a new month and a new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown. It's a fun one this time:

This wasn't very easy for me as I don't have any of the right kind of stamps or dies so I went looking on the internet. 
I found this site freedeariedollsdigistamps. Well, of course, free is my favourite price but do go over and have a look there are such a lot of fun designs for all occasions and especially lots of Christmas images. 
What a fun idea to have Santa and Mrs Santa on holiday. Slightly risqué too! I hope you are not shocked. 
What a palaver just to make a card though. I had trouble with bleeding ink, glue coming through from the back and then the layout of my card. In the end I cut an aperture with a JutstRite die and decorated with a Cardio leaf stamp and some Leane Creatief holly. 
Do join in and if you don't have the right stamp have a go with this one. You have two 
weeks to play along. 

I'm also linking this to Shopping our Stash - Countdown to Christmas. I've been following this challenge for a while but I don't think I've actually managed to enter. It's such a good idea to use what we already have. (I'm currently wrestling with myself about buying a new stamp set). I've used a stamp I've had for years and rarely used, dies I've had since last Christmas and hardly used. Plus pens paper etc which I've been hoarding.    
                                                                 Grab Our Badge!
And ABC Christmas where the new challenge is P,Q and R for People, Quick or Red. I've used P for People. It definitely wasn't quick!


Thanks for visiting and Enjoy The Day! x
