Guest Designing for Christmas Kickstart

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm excited to be Guest Designing for  the 50th Christmas Kickstart Challenge!


This month's challenge is Santa and Friends and I had the perfect stamp for  it.

The party has been stamped with Memento ink and colored with
Copic Sketch Markers.

I smiled the whole time I was working on this, except when
I tried to splatter snow in the background and got a glob in the wrong place. Grrr!
I was quite disheartened, thinking I'd have to start over, but those
snowflake sequins came to the rescue.

Lost Coast Designs is providing a prize for this challenge.

Hope to see you in the gallery!
 


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Such a fun card, Bonnie! I'd have smiled all the way through making this too as the image is a joy. We all get those 'blobby' moments - thanks goodness for sequins! Thanks for being my elf; I'm so looking forward to this month with you, Jo x

This car is adorable...impossible to look at it without a big smile. The snowflakes add a cute touch plus covering up a boo-boo.

So cute!! What a fun stamp and I can imagine you smiling as your coloured. Sequins are the most wonderful things to cover "oops". :) We would not have known if you didn't say anything. :) Love the plaid background and HO HO HO sentiment! Congrats on being Guest Designer at Christmas Kickstart Bonnie! xx

Fabulous Sanata selfie image, this is great fun! No sign of errant snow blobs, the embellishment opportunity philosophy provided the perfect save there!

Bonnie, I would have been smiling while making it, too! I adore this set - you've colored it beautifully, and even found the perfect spot for those fun snowflakes! OH and you HAD ME AT Buffalo plaid!

What an adorable image and a fantastic layout! Sorry for smiling about the splatter but glad it's not just me that gets those. I just use Frantage now so I can put it where needed. Great card, Bonnie!

Such a fun and pretty card for your GD spot at the Christmas Kickstart Challenge Bonnie and the wonky stitches edged mat goes perfectly, and love the red tartan background and the fun die cut sentiment, and of course those super snowflakes. You know what they say 'there are no mistakes just happy accidents'. x

JoAnn said...

What a cute card with that group of characters. Love the background. I can see why you smiled while making your card.

Vicky Hayes said...

I just love that stamp Bonnie! It really does look as if Santa and his friends have spontaneously taken a selfie :) The 'photo' looks great at an angle on the buffalo check background and what a great save with the snowflakes! Vicky x

Congratulations on the Guest Designer spot, Bonnie!
What a fun party shot of Santa and his friends!
The tilted panel and the way you placed the sentiment, Ho Ho Ho, give the card a whimsical and fun feeling! I need something like those snow sequins to cover up my age spots! ;-)

It certainly is a very happy and refreshing card and where would we be without the opportunity to strategically place embellishments? Congrats on your guest designer spot xx

Congratulations on GD. Your card is super fun and cute. Yay to sequins... hate when the splatters really splat in the wrong place.
