Winter Cheer

It's the first of the month and that means a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, our theme is always 'anything goes' - you can use any materials, any techniques etc., as long as the end result is a Christmas card.


I have used the fabulous image called Snowman Skates kindly provided by our regular sponsor - Bugaboo. I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir markers and added glitter and 3D Crystal Lacquer, my papers are from the Crafter's Companion Party Paws Christmas CD.


I have kept the focus of my card on the fun image and just added a sentiment from the Party Paws CD and some card candy.

Bugaboo Stamps are our sponsor this challenge


They are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks Challenge 244 - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 257 - Christmas
Christmas Card Challenge 21 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Whimsy Inspiration Challenge 82 - Color an Image
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge 142 - Make Your Mark
Red Rubber Inspirationals Challenge 218 - The Letter S (Snowman, Skates)

Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog and check out the fabulous DT inspiration - we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes Christmas challenge.
