Santa is wishing you a merry Christmas

This card is for the sketch on Basic Grey week 9:



It's also for:

Allsorts
29: 'buttons'
Saturday Spotlight 9: 'hats on'
Creative craft 4: 'waiting for Santa'
Wednesday stamper: 'Santa Claus'
Color dare 45: 'kraft, dusty durango, very vanilla'
Easy Breezy Kewl 12: 'kraft, tangerine tango, kiwi kiss, close to cocoa'
Sweet stampin' 2: 'it's a colour combo - usse minimum of 3: chocolate chip, real red, old olive, very vanilla'
Colour throwdown 71: 'olive, red, brown/cream'
La-la land 15: 'buttons, buttons, buttons!'
Cards for men: 'Christmas' - this is a new challenge blog just started (I think this would be very appropriate as a 'male' card for man or boy
Paper cutz 20: 'digital or hand stamped Christmas image'
All that scraps: 'anything Christmas'

Although the papers don't look very Christmasy, they are, in fact, all BG Figgy Pudding.

I just love that labrador stamp - it reminds me so much of John's former guide dog, Josey - some of my visitors might remember her - she is well and enjoying life with her new family.

Sweet and sassy 16

A friend asked me to make a card for her to give to a 16 year old. Once before I made a card with a feather and she particularly liked it, so I made this one using a bright pink feather.

I thought I would make an easel card (my second one so far) - they seem to be one of the 'in' things atm, although I also see on the blogs that 'step' and 'side step' cards are 'in' as well!

Anyway, back to this card - which I must say made a change from making Christmas cards - the front papers are DCWV and the ones for the base and inner 'triangle' are BG euphoria.

I made the card to meet the requirements of the commission, but it so happens that it meets these challenges:

Project Tuesday: 'easel card'
Ildi Co 6: 'black and bright'
Pink elephant 43: 'colour me wonderful' - use your favourite colouring medium - copics to colour the girl stamped image
Gingham Girl's word of the week 15: 'fulgent' - dazzlingly bright
Little red wagon 5: 'heavy metal' - the charm shoes are metal
Quixotic 5: 'be charming' - the metal charm shoes, used as a 'stopper' for the front of the card
Simon says: 'so charming'
Cute card Thursday 89: 'swirly girly' - it's definitely 'girly' and there are black PM sparkly swirls
Tellen's place 1: 'embellishments' - late for this, only just found it
Frosted designs: 'scallop' - around the sentiment
Stamp something: 'glitzy somethings' - the shoes are very glitzy and there's a stamped image (the girl)
Kraftin' Kimmie 8: 'touchy feely' - completely different textures of the feather and the metal charm shoes
The crafty pad 48: 'a triangle' - at lease one triangle or that shape card - you can see the triangle when the card is side view

Edit: Jane asked what the image is - it's a download from Charmed Cards & Crafts: 'girls about town' set.
