Christmas With The Cuties, DECEMBER 2018

Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog!  I hope you are all doing well.  All is going fairly well in our neck of the woods.  My job is super busy at the moment, and we have worked every day this past week to try and get things caught up.  I am hoping that this will make things easier closer to Christmas time, when we will want to spend time with our families.  

Anyway, I'm here to share with you what I created for the current Christmas With The Cuties challenge, which is "Anything But a Card."


I took the easy route, and made a tag.  Our sponsor for this challenge is


and I used the Welcome Christmas digi.  I absolutely LOVE this guy!  His face is so sweet, and I love how happy he is!  I used a Tim Holtz die to cut my tag from some kraft card stock, and also from a piece of plaid patterned paper (say that 3 times fast!) from the "Say Freeze" 12x12 paper pad.  I colored the image with alcohol markers, and used a white gel pen to add texture to the green areas.  The die cut "merry" is from a Recollections stamp and die set (love those!), which I also cut from fun foam.  I colored it to match the image, and finished things off by adding some Crystal Stickles.  The snowflakes come from the same stamp and die set, and they got some pearls added to the centers.

I have to admit, I really have no use for tags, so I did add this one to a card:


I used another patterned paper from the same pad, and covered the card front with an ivory panel.

Challenges:

Cutie Pie #129:  Winter Layers
Catch the Bug:  Awkward Holiday Chaos Day 1...Snow
Hiding in my Craft Room #381:  Christmas Colors
Sweet Stampin':  Snowmen and Snowladies
CHNC #414:  ATG or optional "use a sticker" theme
Crafty Calendar:  Christmas
Papercraft Challenges #25:   Lots of dimension

Ok folks, it's late, and I gotta get to bed.  Thanks for stopping by, and please also visit us over at the Christmas With The Cuties blog!

Thank you, and God Bless!
