Wow, the end of the year is getting closer, how quick the year has gone!!! I've celebrated a few milestones this year including my one year blogaversary, massive weightloss and being a part of some wonderful design teams!! I have been lucky enough to be a part of the PCJ DT for the past 8 monthsin which time I have got to know all about these amazing, creative ladies from around the world and I look forward to getting to know them more over the coming year!! I consider them my life long friends!!! :)
So as it is getting closer to the end of the year, everyone is running around busily preparing for Xmas!! So this will be our last PCJ challenge
for the year!!! But don't despair we will be back in the new year with more challenges and new sponsors!!!
This fortnights challenge is another easy one "Christmas". We are all in the middle of doing christmas cards or if you're like me, haven't started yet, so I'm sure we'll see a lot of entries for this one!!
We are being sponsored by Meljen's Designs
and we had 4 cute images to work with! Thanks Melissa!!!
I had a hard time choosing which image to use so I used three of them to create a little scene!!
Want to see??
Isn't this just the cutest!1 I had the idea in my head as soon as I got the images and it turned out just like I envisioned!! (that doesn't happen very often!! LOL!) I wanted to make a tent card so that I could get everything onto the card that I wanted. I coloured the images in with Tria markers and added lots of kindyglitz and Distress stickles for all the snow. I used Kaisercrafts Christmas carnival papers and sewed around the edges. And the snowflakes I cut out with a die cutting machine - wow not sure how I survive without one of those!! My good friend Angela has gone away for a couple of weeks but was kind enough to lend me her die cutting machine and die's and I love it!! Now going to have to start saving for one of my own I think!! I never thought a die cutting machine would be much use as I ony make cards but boy I could do so much!!! Anyway, like I said I need to keep saving! So thanks ANG!! I'm going to be using your machine a lot!! :) I then just added some rhinestones to the snowflakes to finish off the card!!
So now that you have seen my card, why not head on over to the PCJ blog

I look forward to popping by your blog to see what you create!!! As this is the last PCJ challenge
for the year I would like to wish all the PCJ followers a very Safe and Happy Christmas!!! I will be popping by the blog from time to time while the DT have some time off just to say hi and show a card or two or share about our summer holidays here in OZ.
