Holly Jolly - Inspired by a Christmas Carol
It's time for a new challenge over at Holly Jolly. This time the challenge is "Inspired by a Christmas Carol". Why not stream some Christmas music to get you into the mood and start by creating just one or two cards to get you started. There's 156 days left to Christmas. It may seem like it's a lot, but it's actually only just over 22 weeks. Just sayin'....
As usual we have wonderful sponsors who are giving away prices to our winners. Remember that all prizes are given to randomly drawn winners, so everyone has a chance to win! Our generous sponsors this week are Lacy Sunshine, Dr Digi and Melonheadz. Why not hop over to their pages to find inspiration for your cards.
For my card I got to play with Dr Digi's Christmas Chris. I hope it's pretty clear which Christmas song I used for inspiration for my card! If you aren't sure, let me give you a hint: something about being made fun at because of a red nose. I coloured Chris with Copics and fussy cut him. I chose a matching paper from my stash and stamped the custom sentiment using Lawn Fawn's Violet's ABC's and Stampin' Up Endless Wishes. I popped on a reindeer paperclip for embellishment.
