CHNC challenge 31: feature some festive food

Another week has gone by since my last CHNC challenge and it's time again for a new one. This week I'm asking for 'festive food' on Christmas cards - you can see the details for challenge 31 here - I'd love you to join in if you can.

I used the sketch for There she goes 117 getting sketchy challenge:

Papers are BG eskimo kisses - and the white with red stripes is an old piece of Brenda Pinnick paper. The stamped images are, of course, Forever Friends - for Forever Friends 'pastel colours' challenge - with the tree stamped with stazon cactus green masked behind the bear, as was the mistletoe too. I deliberately didn't use copics of promarkers, but coloured in with colouring pencils (I much prefer markers nowadays) - this was for Paper pretties 164: no markers.

The sun was peeping over the top of the photo, so you can't see that the sentiment says 'Happy Christmas'.

I'm linking this for these Christmas challenges too:

It's also for:

Creative craft world: anything BUT birthdays
Hooked on craft 4: cute and cuddly
Charisma cardz 30: 4 legged friends
KB cute Monday 23: food & beverages
Cardmakin mamas 25: food and drink
Die cuttin' divas 25: sweet treats
Paper issues: life is sweet
Stampin' B 121: make a card using ribbon
Deep ocean 4: ribbons
Stamp and create July: ribbon and bows
Wags n whiskers 59: buttons and bows
Truly scrumptious 62: buttons & bows
Use it Tuesday 12: it's a two-fer - two hoarded items - the checked ribbon (had it ages, can't remember where it came from and the red and white striped paper is about five years old)
