Christmas Fun

Happy Monday friends.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Since it's Monday that means we have a new challenge for you over at the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  Our theme for the new challenge is Christmas Fun.


I have used this adorable new Swings and Slides image for my card.  Isn't he just the cutest?  As soon as I saw him I thought of my little grandson so of course I had to color him!  I used Distress Inks to color this sweetie and then added Glossy Accents to the reindeer nose.  The bow on the package has Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter paint and I also used this paint on the snowflakes.  Some twine and a little ornament sentiment finished my card.







Now I've already told you that our theme is Christmas Fun but I also want to tell you that we have 4 prizes up for grabs for this challenge!  Why so many prizes?  Because it's a super special 4-week challenge!  So if you've still got Christmas cards and projects to complete, play along in our challenge for a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes being offered.  Our  Christmas Fun challenge is being sponsored by Rainbow StudiosBunny Zoe's CraftsThe Ribbon Girls, and Crafty Emma's Store.  


Stop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog to get all the challenge details and while you're over there be sure to check out the amazing work by my teamies!
