Sundays With Crissy Challenge #23--Christmas Card Using Non-Traditional Colours

Hello Sundays With Crissy Fans!! It's challenge time again and this month we would like to see "Christmas Cards Using Non-Traditional Colours". That means no red & green. Now how easy is that?

For this month's challenge I actually inked up an oldie but a goodie from High Hopes Stamps called "Christmas Kitty Fun"!! I have been using so many digi images of late that my poor rubber is starting to feel neglected!! I love this stamp because it reminds me of my fur babies Yuki & Willow and given the right props (well maybe not the hat, LOL) they would so do this.

 I learned how to make this bow from a site called Amazing Paper Grace. The link will take you to Becca's tutorial page and the tutorial is called "Tie A Pretty Collar Bow". It takes a little work, the right kind of ribbon, some patience, and your tongue (LOL) if you're anything like me when you are doing something finickity.

So that's me, how 'bout you--let's see if you're up for the challenge of making a Christmas card with non-traditional colours. Click HERE for download instructions!! There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by Random.org at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.
Thanks for taking a look!! Have a great day!!!
