SFC4413 - Hip To Be Square

Hello my friends ... I'm back once again to share with you the new challenge over at Squigglefly!

(Please scroll down for the November Crafty Secrets Linky Party-DT Challenge)

Today it's the Hobbyist turn to share fun & inspiration with you so please be sure to pop over and see what my team mates have created for you!  And then, of course, come join in the fun!


For my card I have combined two images together in Word10 to create my focus/sentiment image.  The adorable Christmas Fairy is by Cheryl Grant Alger and this awesome sentiment called Elf Food is by a new to the group artists - Carmen Gamble.  Please be sure to check out the amazing images these ladies have for sale over at Squigglefly.  I'm sure you'll find something to fit your card making needs!

For my background, I have actually pulled some scraps from my worktable.  As you know I've spent the past couple of weeks working on craft show projects.  My 2nd show was this past Saturday ... was an AWESOME show!  And my last show for the year is on the 30th.

I've used the largest die in the Spellbinder  'Fleur De Lis Squares' die set for the backing on my focus image.  Coloring was done with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and the icicles were created with the Martha Stewart icicle border punch.

I'm really pleased with the outcome of this card and hope you like it too!

A few additional challenges are:
TokBobok #6 - Christmas
Bloggers Challenge - Things with Wings
Brown Sugar Challenge - Things with Wings
Card Crafter's Circle #99 - Cute Cards
Polkadoodles - Anything Goes Christmas

Thanks so much for stopping by today and PLEASE come back again soon.
As always ...
