Waltzingmouse PJ Party .....

... Morning!  I'm back with my third card for the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party - this time it's for the second category - to pick a card, any card, so long as it's Christmas:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Funky Feathers, Alpine Christmas
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Accessories: SU Card - Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake; White Lustre Card; Vellum

I'm afraid that I haven't made a 3D or interactive card, but I have made a Christmas card using non-Christmas images!  I created the Christmas tree from one of the stylized feathers from Funky Feathers - I woke up early yesterday morning with idea in my head and it only took about 20 minutes to make the card.  I stamped the Christmas message onto vellum (very on trend) and wrapped it round the white panel.  Then I mounted the whole lot onto a mat of Cherry Cobbler.  The inside has a a white panel on which I stamped the little village from Alpine Christmas and one of the verses from the set - they are all so nice.

I used a couple of challenges to make this card - the colours from this week's CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#52.  I'm also joining in with the final challenge of 2013 over at Festive Friday Challenge - FFC#22; the DT would like us to make a card using our favourite challenge from the year.  Now I didn't get to play along often - don't know why - I love making Christmas cards.  So I picked the challenge to feature a Christmas tree - those I adore!




Now, you might have noticed that I made this card with non-Christmas images - well that's what we'd like you to do over at Waltzingmouse Fanatics - WMSFC#6 - make a card and share it with us - you've got until Thursday 28th November to join in.

And that really is all for now.  I've got a busy morning lined up getting ready for our Dr Who party.  We've invited friends over to share in the fun of the 50th Anniversary show.  The Day of the Doctor will be broadcast on BBC America at 2.50pm with no advert breaks!  Really looking forward to it.  See you soon.

That's one of the clever-est Christmas trees I've ever seen. And I'm afraid to admit this but I have no clue who Dr. Who is... Off to google.
