Challenge Time at Delightful!

Good morning all you lovely bloggers! Thank you for stopping by to see me its always nice to see you.  I have had such a busy week, trying to get sorted after my holiday then Christmas shopping so I can get everything ready to take down to London tomorrow - its all done and wrapped and ready to go in the car!!

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and this should be an easy one for all you crafters who are beavering away on your Christmas projects - we want to see:


This should be easy for you - nice traditional Christmas colours.  Here is what I have made:

I have used the gorgeous Santa Bryce - don't you just love that little Rudolph peeking over his shoulder?? He is available to purchase here over at Digital Delights.  I have coloured him with Copics and added some glitter to the trim of his suit - you really need to peer hard at it to see it!!. I cut the image out and put him on an oval cut out with SB die and embossed with a dotty folder.  For the trim I used a border punch and cut and bent it to follow the oval - Debby from A  Scrapjourney showed how to do it I then distressed the edges with Fired Brick DI.  I got the papers last year from Michaels - a big 12 x 12 pad.  The corners are made with MFT dies and the ribbon and twine are from my stash.  The big button I was lucky enough to win last year in Debby's candy - thank you Debby!

Remember, you don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter the challenge but we love it sooooo much when you do that you can enter twice!! Wendy has some fabulous images so it is well worth having a browse and you can probably pick up a bargain in the sale.  Our sponsor this week is:
