Christmas? Already?!

Nope... but a christmas card, nonetheless! :)

Today the new challenge goes live at One Stitch At A Time and it's my first as one of the design team. :)

The challenge is Anything Goes and I was given this adorable "Lucy Goes Skating" image from Reece's Scrap Pieces to work with:



Isn't she cute? But undeniably christmassy. I am not normally the kind of crafter who makes my christmas cards months in advance (please take note Create and Craft et al!!) but I just couldn't resist doing something christmassy with this little lady.

I used some pretty 6x6 papers that were freebies with a magazine and coloured Lucy in matching colours using my Promarkers. I also did a lot of fiddly measuring and cutting to make this a "pop up" card. An Indigo Blu sentiment stamp, a Memory Box die border and a snowflake punch added the finishing touches.

The sponsor for this week's challenge is Creative Craft World and you can win yourself 3 Promarkers of your choice (if you enter using a Stitchy Bear Stamps image) or you can enter with a non-Stitchy Bear image and be in with a chance of winning a $3 coupon to spend in the Stitchy Bear Stamps store. :)

There's also a new collab set available at the Stitchy Bear Stamps store... until 19 August if you spend at least $7, you will also get all these stamps for free:


Bargain! So why not head on over to the store, grab yourself some fab digi stamps (and freebies!), make a project and enter it into the OSAAT challenge!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
