25th Club

so, I hear you say whats that? over on the Bubbly Funk forum there are loads of great challenges to join in with....one if them, instigated by Gez last year, was to make so many christmas cards by the 25th of the month - although, come summer I'd had enough of Christmas, those that I made in the early part of the year definately helped with those "last minute" makes I always find myself having to do!

So, this year its being run again, but, instead of "free for all" its theme/receipe based!

January's receipe was from Joanne, and its was:-
Turquoise/blue and silver
Swirls of some description
Glittery bits - glitter, bling etc

so, here are my cards:-

both have "Miss Clause" from Funky kits as the main image, coloured in with water colour pencils the trim was hi-lighted with stickles....various papers in turquoise and silver and a swirl from an inkadinadoo pack and some gems were all added!

having a few technical problems tonight, the wireless mouse and keyboard on my laptop have just both decided to die! I'm a touch typist but its just taken me ages to type this!! roflxx

Gez said...

Fab cards Carol. Oooh, love your swirl. Well done to a great start. I think my biggest problem will be remembering where I've put them to keep them safe!!!

Not seen this challenge, but seems like a good idea, saves the made rush I had ths year, I might be a late starter and start next month.

Love your cards, as always.

Hope your laptop gets sorted I know how I hate it when mine goes wrong

ooh yes very nice Carol espeicially the swirl. Good idea to colour her outfit in blue instead of the usual red. I am gamely trying to play along with this but have managed only 1 card so far - chrimbo mojo very sluggish. hope your job is going well x
