CHNC challenge extra for August


Can you believe that it's now August? Where has the year gone to so far? The months really do pass more quickly as you get older.

This means it's time to start CHNC challenge extra for August and for my first Christmas card of the month I've used three images kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps, the sponsor: wise man 1, 2 and 3 and combined them into one image. Please click on the link for the challenge and join in with any Christmas cards you make.

The background paper is a freebie with a magazine from some time in the distant past. The mirror card pieces were all from my offcuts box including the one embossed with the folder that came with my eBosser. Ribbon was from Lakeland (in their after-Christmas sale).

I coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.

I followed the sketch for 2 sisters 154:
