Something completely different: keys

This is a very quick ATC for last Friday's Something completely different challenge: 'keys'.

I was going to use a die cut of a key or possibly a picture of one and play around with inks, but in the end I thought 'the answer is right in front of me - my keyboard!'

Vintage father Christmas

The next six cards are for the 25th club on Bubbly Funk forum - the idea is that each month we make a set number of Christmas cards (we choose how many to make) - and there is a theme for the month. This month the theme chosen by Tracey has been 'animals'. Until today I had only done 4 of my 10 cards, but now I've completed them.

This first card for BF 25th club uses the sketch for Sparkle creations 11:

The animal, of course, is Rudolph - papers are various offcuts and I'm stamped one of my favourite Christmas images - the vintage Santa is OK for Fab's big Christmas 8.

I've added three hearts for February's challenge on Christmas cards all year round - that means I've now made two cards for this challenge - another three to make.

The challenge on One powerful hour this week is 'faces' - 'This week use a face or a portion of a face in your piece.'

Btw, the card isn't crooked, it's the scan - and the little hearts don't look so purple and pink irl.

Clean & simple Christmas cards

The next two cards for BF 25th club use Clean & simple sketch FTL79:

As the sketch says, they are clean and simple - the background paper on the first one is English paper company and the second one is Craft creations.

As I've used images from a kit that I bought just before Christmas, I think this qualifies for Bah! humbug 2: 'using new/nearly new stash'

Skating fun

The next card for BF 25th club is based on the sketch for CPS 115:

Once again, the background paper is Craft creations and the strip across the middle is English paper company. The skating bear is a Forever Friends 3D element sticker, which qualifies it for Sparkle creations 12: 'use any winter sport related image'.

As this card has three hearts on it, it's another one for Christmas cards all year round February challenge.

Crafty catz 20 is 'charming bear' - the FF bear and the hearts charm.

Forever friends current challenge is 'hearts', so this is suitable for that.

Time to hang up that Christmas stocking?

This is another card for BF 25th club based on Sketchy Colors 12:

This is also for ABC Christmas: 'C is for candy' + pink

Papers are DCWV

Sweet Christmas bears

This final card for BF 25th club February is based on The sweetest thing sketch 57:

This was a good sketch for using up offcuts.

It's also another one for Sparkle creations 12: 'any winter sport'.

A prize

I've received this prize from Ann (Ann's Creative Nook) for her challenge 76, for this card.

Thank you, Ann.
