First Christmas Card 2011

Well, here's my first post of 2011.  Not really felt up to making cards yet, my mojo has deserted me.  Spent lots of time checking out the blogs hoping that it would kick in again but not much luck I am afraid.  Bah Humbug have started their weekly Christmas Challenge again, so I had to join in as I managed to do one every week last year.  The challenge this week is Holly/Fairies so I used this lovely stamp from Charmed Cards 'Holly Pixie' coloured with Promarkers, paper is very old, I think from a QVC kit, ribbon is recycled from a Lindt Christmas Reindeer and poinsettia sticker was in the prize for completing all the challenges on Bah Humbug.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Friday Sketch - The Sketch
I Love Promarkers - Recycle (the ribbon, Lindt Chocolate Reindeer)

Hi Debs and welcome back to our Bah! Humbug! Challenges. You say your mojo has gone AWOL but obviously you must have hung onto a little bit because this card is just perfect for our first challenge of 2011. Your sweet pixie is beautifully coloured and looks adorable against the holly paper and red ribbon - fabby recycling BTW. Here's to another 100% year ... that would be awesome! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!

Hi Debs, gorgeous card, love the fairy, your mojo looks fine from here!! lots of love Steph

Ann said...

Hi Debs that fairy is so cool - she reminds me of the cool chicks in the Jackie comics of my youth. Love your ribbon - I too have saved that stuff and the bell. Wish I'd saved the chocolate too instead of eating it and gaining loads of weight.
As Max has said another 100% year would be awesome - no pressure - LOL.
Seriously we love to see your entries and it's just great to be in year 2 now.
Good luck in the draw.
