Challenge #23rd - "Merry Christmas" - Cards for Men

Good Morning All, well here we are again another Challenge over at Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and for this one we want to start to make our Christmas Cards and the theme is "Merry Christmas" and we are being sponsored by Scribbled Kidz the brainchild of our Blog Leaders husband Andrew.

http://scribbledkidz.weebly.com/
And is offering a fabulous prize of 3 images of winners choice.

And here is what they say about themselves:-

  Scribbled Kidz is all about fun images largely inspired by my family and what they might get up to. They are all hand drawn originals scanned in at 300 dpi and saved as jpegs.   If you have any suggestions or special requests please let us know.Please pop along and see what we have to offer.

   And we were lucky enough to be able to choose a image to play with and this is the one I chose.


This image is titled "Ho Ho Ho" and you will find it here, I printed the image onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterward I cut the image out completely and used a snow writer on the edges of the little santa's coat.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the first mount is a red card and the paper is from Do Crafts "Santa's Workshop" paper pad, this one is a all over house pattern. Then with a Tattered Lace Sleigh die I cut out the sledge with bronze mirri card.
This ws then placed towards the top and the image was placed below towards the right hand side, and to finish of I used a Simon Says Stamps stamp and banner, this was placed at the bottom on the right hand side. I used some of the bits that came out of the sledge die in the top two corners as they were to pretty to throw away.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Merry Christmas" Challenge.

Shirley, You have done a wonderful job, your background paper is wonderful, love the sleigh and the corners. Wonderful job with your coloring.
I think I have lost the last month of my life. I do hope things have been fine with you. Being in Austin Texas for 3 weeks and them coming home and getting pneumonia and being laid up with that for another month. I was keeping all the posting and was becoming overwhelmed with all the beautiful posting and I was in no way going to get through them. So I decided to start fresh.
Hugs, Patricia
