Feeling Festive at FOR FUN

Good Morning all

apologies for the lateness of my card, but we have had some incredibly distressing news to deal with. I won't go into details, as further tests have to be carried out before we know what we are dealing with, but please extend your thoughts and prayers to my little sister, who is so special to me and has always been an inspiration in the way she deals with whatever life throws at her.

Onto this week's challenge at FOR FUN; we have one of our favourite sponsors this week, it's MICHELLE PERKETT (I adore her work!)

As always, when there is a 5th Wednesday in the month, we have a CHRISTMAS theme, which should mean LOTS of entries this week! I kept my creation it is:

I made a tall slim card this week, with the 'NOEL' created on the computer. I added some glittering Glamour Dust to the snow-caps...

...and two of Michelle's fabulous Christmas images, one either side, which I left uncoloured so you can really see all the detail. Here is PEACE ANGEL...

...And here is Michelle's LATEST creation, the Peppermint Tulle Fairy, isn't she adorable! You can get hold of these in Michelle's ETSY SHOP.

 This is mounted onto red card. The card blank is pale green, and I have covered it with a piece of holly vellum and some gold lattice-ribbon; these are held in place by the clusters of 3 brads in each corner (to represent the holly berries.)

The lucky winner of our challenge this week will receive 5 of the images used by the DT this week.

I look forward to visiting your blog and seeing your fab creations.
