Everyone is welcome to join in with this fun challenge which closes on 21st December by which time you need to have submitted all 12 creations. The full rules are over on her blog here . Linda offers 3 very generous prizes of gift vouchers to spend in her terrific on line shop, The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Do have a look at the link here .
This is her tag she made this week for week 2. As you know I choose to make 12 cards for the challenge instead of tags.
I took my inspiration this week from the red and green stenciling with the rather geometric feel. I also loved her shiny clear embossed poinsettia with the large gem in the centre. I also wanted to use a stamped tree at the centre of my card. I had a look through my stash of Christmas stamps and found my Lavinia fairy Christmas tree stamp. I also love gingham ribbon and wanted to use a piece on my finished card.
First I made an stencilled background using bold Dylusions spray inks in red and green.
On top of this I put my Tim Holtz Christmas stencil and sprayed red though it. This is my backing card.
I also used a Dobadoo stencil to create 2 panels. I was a lucky winner of one of their challenges and won this great stencil. For these I just used a single colour.
I die cut a poinsettia and a Christmas tree and after inking them I added clear embossing powder and heated them, I loved the shiny surface it created.
It was then time for me to put on my creative hat.
And this is my finished card.

After some welcome rain yesterday morning the sun is back but it is quite chilly out. I plan to get out into the garden later and I may even get the change to plant some bulbs. Have a restful Sunday everyone and take care,
Bye for now,
