Good morning! We Pollycraft girls are finally back with a new challenge after our four week break! You would not believe the number of entries we had into the big four week Christmas Fun challenge! Over 640 wonderful entries! I've about worn my keyboard out commenting!
The four lucky winners will be announced on the Pollycraft blog soon, but in the meantime, our challenge to you for this week (from the lovely Sheena) is to Punch It! Head over to the Pollycraft Monday Challenge blog for some wonderful inspiration from my teamies and to find out the details!
I haven't quite finished making Christmas cards yet, to I used the opportunity to get one more done...
Firstly, I must apologise for the dark pictures... There's no sunshine here at the moment! I feel quite put out! I wouldn't mind so much if we had some lovely white fluffy snow, but there's no chance of that for a while yet.
To tell you the truth, punches are not really my thing... I find them a bit bulky and awkward and so I never buy them. I do have a circle punch though which I recently purchased to make my Snowman Poop gifts (another story) for Christmas, so I used it for the sentiment. The flourishes are cut with my Slice machine, but I guess if you closed one eye and squinted you could think they were punched.
This image is one of the adorable new Swings and Slides Merry Christmas images called Happy Mail. Did you know that right now you can get all 28 of the Swings and Slides digis for just £8.99 in the shop?! That is such a good deal!
The papers I have used are from October Afternoon. I have coloured the image with copics and added lots of Stickles. The sentiment stamp is from LOTV as are the postmark stamps. The crystals are by Prima.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Here's a close-up:
And here are the copics I used:
Have a lovely week!
