It's new challenge time again at Sundays with Crissy!!
For November we would like to see "Christmas Cards Using Non-Traditional Colours!" That means none of the usual red and green that is everywhere this time of year ;) We want you to think outside the (Christmas) box and show us what you come up with!
I've chosen Crissy's adorable new image "Sharing the Warmth", available from Whimsy Stamps for my card. Aren't they so cute snuggling together for warmth? I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of mice (we grow wheat here in country South Australia, so the grain brings mice plagues - horrid little blighters! But there is no way these cute little snuggle bugs could be the same things! Crissy manages to make EVERYTHING cute!! ;)
My Mum challenged me to go 'purple' (her favourite colour), and I teamed it with 'aqua' (my favourite colour) and this is what I ended up with...
I used the current Sketch n Stash Challenge 73 and my old Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather' 6x6 papers, and distressed each layer with the edge of my scissors and Distress Inks. I added some pretty lace and Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for finishing touches.
So now it's your turn... Make your way back over to the Sundays with Crissy blog and play along too - You can enter your creation at Sarah's Post - HERE-!
Hope you all have a fabulous week!
