Deck the Halls

     Last day of the week-long Holiday Chaos at Catch the Bug and today we get a freebie to use plus an inspiration photo.  I'm so tickled that I managed to do a new card each day and to use a Bugaboo Stamps image each time.  That part wasn't required but I do love Bugaboo so why not?


Here's the inspiration photo:


     This image is the freebie from Bugaboo and I colored her face and hands with ProMarkers plus used metallic ink on the star and ornaments on the tree.  Then rest is paper pieced.  Both the image and the sentiment are printed directly onto the card front for a single layer card.  I added strips of gingham plaid ribbon and tied a bow from pale green gingham ribbon.  I thought a CAS design best matched the childlike drawing of the image.

     Challenges:
Aud Sentiments
Color Crazy
Color My Heart
Crafting with an Attitude
Cute Card Thurs.
Di's Digi Designs
Outlawz Twisted Thurs.
Polkadoodles
Star Stampz
Winter Wonderland

     I'm going to take a few deep breaths this weekend and then get ready for family holidays (starting next week) with all the road trips, package wrapping, card mailing, and other travels that make up my annual Christmas and New Year holidays.  I'll have some scheduled posts while I'm away and will be visiting and commenting whenever I can get online.  In the meantime, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and blessing of the season to you and yours.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
