Crafty Catz #259 ~ Last Minute Christmas

Hi! is everyone ready for Christmas?  If not then the final challenge of this year with the Crafty Catz is just perfect for you because it's 'Last Minute Christmas' and it's my choice!  That does mean that you can make a card or a gift which ever you need the most of! hee hee!  I've made my cards just need to write 'em and send 'em off so I'd better get a move on with that!  Anyway back to the challenge and we have 2 fabulous sponsors for you this week ...


The Crafty Catz will be back in the New Year but unfortunately we will be minus Ingrid as she has had to step down and she will be greatly missed, but the rest of us will be there!  Right on to my make and as I said at the beginning my cards are made so I decided to make a gift card match book as its always very handy for any unexpected gift! lol  I used a fabulous image from Kenny K and some gorgeous papers that I just had to get in the Bearly Mine Designs sale.  I chose colours from the paper to colour the image and love how she turned out in the bright colours. I added glamour dust to her hat and the snow on the little tree was done with white gel pen.  The tag was stamped and edged in pink ink and then clear heat embossed and finished off with a pink gem.  The inside is some of the same design paper but in a different colour way.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sentimental Sunday #236 ~ Embossing
Come & Get It ~ Merry Christmas
Kenny K's Krafty Krew #185 ~ Anything Goes #2
Crafty Cardmakers & More #129 ~ Christmas
Crafty Boots ~ Merry Christmas
Little Red Wagon #267 ~ So Flaky
Crafting For All Seasons #92 ~ Anything Christmas BUT a card
