Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning folks....the old body is now fully recovered from my day of excitement at the SECC and hey it's great to have that extra hour to play I didn't spend it tucked up under the duvet....I am up and working in the cubbyhole would you believe in my comfy cosy dressing gown....with 2 non craft days this's back to crafting with a vengeance and on with some challenges...
The challenge this week over at Daring Cardmakers has been set by the lovely Kathy and is.......

Kathy would like us to use 5 or 10 if you can manage it (I think that may be a bit of a tall order)
of our favourite things on a card...but here goes

and yes it's another Christmas card for the box and here are my favourite things.....

  1. Colour combo.....Red and Duck Egg Blue
  2. MME Papers ..Signature Christmas.....the ones I got from my lovely Buddy Ann
  3. Circles
  4. Scallops
  5. Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad for inking edges
  6. Chipboard Letters
  7. Snowflakes
  8. Craftwork Cards....Card Candy
  9. Craftwork Cards.....Oval Die Cut Messages
  10. Ribbon
Believe me folks.....I am stunned.....never thought that I could squeeze 10 of my most favourite things onto one card....just goes to show what you can do when you try....thought at first that I had only 9 but discovered I had left out my favourite papers at the moment....anything from My Minds Eye......can't believe I have reached the dizzy heights of gold star status....but I may have taken a few liberties by including the colour combo......Kathy is a lovely lady and I'm sure she will let this little old lady have her moment of glory!!!!!Be furry bundle of golden deliciousness is not a happy bunny.....oops should have said be honest he is like a bear with a sore head and will be popping by later with a little rant.....something he spotted in the newspaper has got his hackles up....don't say I didn't warn you and I will back tomorrow with another challenge card.
Hugs Kath xxxxxx
