Second Week of POLLYCRAFT Christmas Special

Sorry if you were over here yesterday looking for my Weekly Catch up. I didn't have much to catch up with really. Nothing new to show you or tell ya about - so I done without. :) Plus I'm worn out with the cold. I have a chesty cough on top of a sore throat and poppy ears and a runny nose. I'm such a catch right now! ;)

Enough of my sob story.. I promised I'd be back with a weekly reminder for our Special Pollycraft Christmas Challenge.. and here is the second installment. You guys joined in yet?! No?! HEAD ON OVER THERE!! Have you seen the prizes?! Yikes, you do NOT know what you're missing!!

So, who knew boy themed Christmas cards could be such fun?! That's the effect Paulas images have on me, they make even the trickiest projects a joy to create with such ease. Check out the new Christmas release over at the Pollycraft Shop.

For my card this week, I used a freebie from last Monday.. Casper Silvermist - "Too Cool For Christmas" You can still grab him for FREE HERE over at the Shop.

I've coloured him using Copics and ProMarkers and fussy cut him out. Sorta wish his jumper wasn't grey. Hey ho - what's to stop me printing him out again and trying a different combo?! ;) I've added Stardust Stickles to the fluff on his Santa hat and adhered him to the card using dimensionals. Fluff. Love that word.

I have used scraps of paper from Basic Grey Jovial collection and kept the layout pretty simple, being a Christmas card for a teenage boy and all. I used Die-namics Button Quartet, lime green bakers twine and some Prima pearls to add a few embellishments.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Mark's Finest Papers - Make it Masculine
× The Poodles Parlour - Christmas
× Stamping with the Dragon - Anything Goes
× Simply Create Too - #1 All About Christmas
× Sweet 'n Sassy - Favourite Things
