This week at LCI challenge has been kinda set by me, but Lisa had to be my knightress in shining armour and help get the challenge post up as my PC decided to throw a major wobbly and keep generating a blue screen... eeek!!!HB has been working on it to try and fix it, but I fear the worst. Thanks Lisa, you are a star!! I'm desparately trying to backup everything, photos and a new complication of all my digi images. I've got such a selection of things I have bought and some I have won and they must add up to a fair few pennies worth!! So maybe all of this just goes to show the total benefit of stamping proper, and this little cutie - Dear Santa from the Christmas Jack and Robyn collection - is just gorgeous :-D And with the added bonus that you don't need to rely on a computer, printer or anything really!!
OK, so the challenge is a bingo challenge - you know the idea right - pick a line up and down, left to right, or diagonally. However some of the team have gone for the kitchen sink and have included all 9 elements onto their card! We thought this challenge would give you plenty of options for your creativity, and it is the last challenge of 2011, so plenty of time to get your cards in!
This card is for my friend's son, Ed, for Christmas, and I think it is a great image, not just for kids either!
I went for felt, spots and buttons. (I know, it was so hard doing a card with NO ribbon, but I decided twine was good too!)
The papers are Bo Bunny Double Dot in Kiwi and some MME papers, the buttons are from a Basic Grey set, and the image/sentiments are LCI (you get this sentiment with the Dear Santa stamp, plus another which reads Making a List and Checking It Twice), as is the neutral Jute/Twine, which you can get here
I love using felt for snowflakes, even when they are as bright as this one :-D I've used white and You've Been Tango'd felt, available here
