CHNC challenge 28: spots before your eyes!

It's time for another challenge on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog - it's quite scary how quickly this year is going - here we are at Saturday again! For challenge 28 I'm asking you to include spots or dots on your Christmas card. I haven't used many dots on my card, so I haven't gone completely dotty - it's up to you how many your include. I'd love to see your entries for this challenge here.

I'm always keen to support other Christmas challenge blogs, so I've used the sketch for Christmas challenges with sketches challenge 4.

The card is totally made from offcuts and scraps for Jingle Belles 'holiday leftovers' challenge - a mixture of Papermania and Brenda Pinnick, as well as some unknown text paper - and Forever Friends 3D stickers.

This is an early card for Pinky's Christmas gang challenge to 'have a teddy bear on your card' - if you'd like to know more about the Christmas gang just click on one of the names in my sidebar.

This is also for:

Cardmadfairy 12: include an animal
Sparkles forum Christmas challenge 6: glitter (lots on the FF elements)
There she goes 114: glitter, glitz & bling
A la card monkey 64: Christmas in July
Tuesday throwdown 56: Christmas in July
Little red wagon: Christmas in July
The paper variety: Christmas in July
Craft us crazy: Christmas in July
Creative CAS for July: clean and simple Christmas in July
The paper shelter 21: lots of dots
My time to craft 147: a la carte (food)
Incy wincy 101: sugar and sweets
PaperPlay 27: fruity (the Christmas cake and pudding)
Catch the bug: clean and simple
Art impressions 23: using something from your stash - the offcuts/scraps, but also the FF 3D elements
Sentimental Sundays 62: anything goes

Update: Big apologies to Christmas Challenges with sketches - I posted a picture of the sketch, which I shouldn't have done (I feel bad about this because I did this last time and forgot again - I'm so used to doing it for other challenge blogs). Please follow the link for their blog to see the sketch.

  22. Hi Hazel, what a cute card you have made. Thanks for using the sketch at CCWS. But I have to tell you, that if you want to be able to win the prize you have to remove the sketch from your blog. Hope you don't mind, but otherwise you're excluded in the prizedraw. And that would be a pitty, don't you think?

    I hope to see you again at CCWS!

    Greetings
