Using Green on Christmas Projects

WaitingForSanta

This card was inspired by the challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge #50 -your creation must be mostly Green and Christmas. When I found this image, Waiting for Santa, and saw he was already wearing Green I knew it would be perfect for this challenge! I like to use pre-colored images as I’m not great with coloring. I did sneak in a little red but I think it will still count as mostly Green. The cute twine was given to me by my friend, Deedee, so it was even more perfect to pair it with one of her cute images! I used and older sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap (card sketch #16) as my inspiration which is a current sketch at the March Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com.

CHALLENGES:

1) Sparkles Christmas Challenge #50 – Use mostly Green and must be a Christmas card.

2) March Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – sketch #4

3) Completely Christmas Challenge #52 – add texture. My texture is the twine.

4) Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge #218 – Cut it up. I cut out the boy and pop dotted him on the card.

Yo Ho Ho Happy Halloween

Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring the Clear it Out Challenge which is Halloween (or use Black and Orange). I went with the Halloween theme but in the end used black and orange only so I did both without even trying! This card is for one of the guys at work to give his mom as they are big Basset Hound lovers so I was super excited when I saw this image.

In my stash I found the dog bone paper clip and chest charm which I thought was perfect. The paper is also YEARS old so the only thing new and modern on this card is the image! I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #271 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

1) October Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – used Tuesday Morning Sketches #271

2) Clear it Out Challenge – Halloween (or use orange and black)

3) Use Your Stuff #158 – Pet / Animal challenge. Not one of our dogs but there is a guy at work that has a standing order of Basset Hound cards for his mom.
