CHNC challenge 225: something beginning with F


For my CHNC challenge 225 I'm looking for you to use or show something beginning with F -  e.g. flurries (of snow), flourishes, flowers, faith, funny, Father Christmas, figgy pudding ... or, if you are stuck, just FESTIVE!! - I'm sure you can come up with other ideas too. If you are stuck you can get some more ideas here.

I've made two cards using die cuts created on my Scan n Cut, using svg files from SVG Attic (one of the sponsors), changing this to the correct format for the SnC using 'canvas'.  The file I used is called winter flurries - so I have used at least two words beginning with F ... flurries and flourishes (perhaps even 'flake' as in 'snow flake'  ...  as well, of course, as FESTIVE!

I'm also adding these cards for my Patterned Paper April challenge - if you haven't discovered that yet, please take a look and join in the challenge.

For the first card the background is Bo Bunny tis the season carol:


For the second card I used My Mind's Eye lost and found Christmas paper, using a couple of glittered strips from the reverse side of the paper:

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 76: anything goes with a twist ... use a die or punch. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used a Nellie Snellen die to cut out The Stamping Boutique image, Audrey with a cupcake, kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge. This had been coloured with Chameleon pens. The die cut was mounted on a piece of Pink Petticoat vintage rose paper. The background paper and the pink and white flower panel offcut are from the Pink Petticoat wild blossoms collection. Washi tape from Paperchase (a bargain buy) and flowers from Hobbycraft.
