Christmas Card Club Challenge #19 - Woolly Hats and Gloves

Hi Crafters,

Happy Sunday to you all!
I've just returned from a weeks holiday on the East Coast, we had fabulous weather and couldn't have asked for more as it was late in the season and unexpected.
My absence explains my sporadic commenting last week so if I did not visit you then rest assured I will be popping along soon over the next few days.

Now on to why I'm here today, it's another Christmas Card Club project.
This time it was Kate's turn to choose the theme for our Christmas creations, she has given us 

Woolly Hats & Gloves


I've used another of these fabulous Craft Creations Decoupage images for my card.
She's wearing a hat and gloves and I'm guessing they're woolly so hope this fits the brief.

Papers - Dovecraft 'Glad Tidings' 8 x 8 Pad

Challenges I'd like to enter:

My Christmas card making is coming along a treat and I have quite a pile now so feel pretty pleased at this stage. Most of my family ones are made now and I have plenty for my stall too.

Please pop along to the other ladies in the group, they have all created some fantastic cards for this week - you know the drill by now that their blog links are in my top tab bar above.

See you soon,

As You Like It Challenge - Favourite Film or Song & WHY

Hi Crafters,

Thanks for joining me today.
I'm here to share my DT inspiration for the new challenge at As You Like It.

We'd like you to showcase a project using your Favourite Film or Song and Why.

My favourite film is The Addams Family.
( I bet you all said that to the tune, he, he)

The particular version I'm speaking of was with Anjelica Huston as Morticia and dates back to 1991! Crikey how time flies!
I love fictional/fantasy stories but not horror films so this certainly fits the bill. All of the quirky characters have an endearing quality, even Uncle Fester.

Anyhow, here is my card...


Recipe
Image - Frankie - Kenny K Stamps
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Crealies Stitched Squares Die

Challenges I'd like enter:
Aud Sentiments - #163 ATG + Sentiment
Creative Fingers - #115 ATG
Stamping Sensations - One For The Boys
Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends - #41 ATG
Try It on Tuesday - Children
Club KennyK - Birthday
