Christmas Stress

We have a new challenge starting today at Fab’n Funky, which I am hosting, and I’ve chosen the theme – Make Someone Smile.  So we would love to see your amusing cards – for Christmas or any time of the year.

Our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo stamps – with a prize of 7 digis for the lucky winner.

 Bugaboo have loads of fun images and I made my card using JJ Coffee to Go – available here.


I coloured the image with Promarkers, a Flexmarker and Copics, and cut around it with a scalloped oval die.  I distressed around the image with a blue ink pad, although this isn’t showing in the photo.  The paper is from Polkadoodles Festive Christmas, with the edges distressed.  The lower sentiment comes with the digi, but I typed it out so I could use the same font for the sentiment at the top.  The snowflake is a Joy crafts die, the tree is by Marianne Designs and the stars are from the waste of the Star Border by Joanna Sheen.

Do take a look at the Fab’n Funky blog – where you will see all the details of this challenge, as well as some fantastic inspiration from the Design Team.
