Chocolate, Coffee & Cards – Your Favourite Holiday!

Hello, how are things? Good I hope!

I’m back again as Chocolate, Coffee and Cards  have a new challenge today which is Your Favourite Holiday! So choose your fave, be it summer, Christmas, Easter etc. and make us a card!  But do remember that we are a CARD ONLY challenge!

This time we are sponsored by Scribbles Designs
There is a fab prize up for grabs for one lucky winner so check out the blog or details!

This is a sad post for me today as it will be my last with this wonderful team.  I have thoroughly enjoyed working with such a fabulous bunch of ladies and will miss them loads!

So onto my final make and of course my favourite holiday is Christmas! It can never start too early for me and always finishes too soon.

Now I have two cards to show, the reason being that I dislike them both in equal measure and could not decide which was worse!! Hmph!!

 I have used the rather fabulous Snowman Globe and have failed miserably to do him justice! I used Serif to mat the sentiment onto the plaque and that’s where my mojo up and left me! (Miserable so-and-so!)  Undeterred I proceeded to make the first red card.  Oh dear I over glittered (sigh)......
Card 1
......and so I made another one. Got the colours a bit wrong here and ran out of time!! L Oh well!
Card 2
When my mojo comes back it is definitely destined for the naughty corner!!

Dies/Punches: Snowflakes from Die-sire, All Occasions, Tonic & Spellbinders
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Glitter card
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Cuttlebug embossing folder - Stickles - Ribbon

So roll that snowball over to see what my fabulous, will-miss-you-very-much-teamies have made for this challenge and play along!

Thanks so much for looking and have a good day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
