hi guys, today's challenge is for

and i have to say the weirdest challenge theme ever but it isn't called a challenge for nothing lol

well i did warn you lol
i have to admit i was stuck, and I'm also in Christmas card meltdown mode and suffering form the nasty bug hubby kindly gave me,so this is what my poor tired sick brain came up with .....

I used the beautiful Gothic church window,which i printed coloured and fussy cut, then layered onto a picture of a stained glass window, then i printed the Christmas candles 4 times coloured and cut to decoupage them to give depth, and the Hairy legs.....

well its Fred ! or the spider from Black

so there you have the hairy legs creation from my weird imaginations.

so are you up for the challenge...go on its a good one xx

the backing paper is all from My craft Studio, the first one i used the

they are stamped in a blue metallic ink from Encore! then I used clear embossing powder over it, and finished with some glittery ribbon.

on this next one i used the Winter Tree and the  same sentiment
the tree and sentiment where stamped using black Versacolor, then clear embossing.
then i added tiny tiny silver gems all over the tree, and finished with some silver Rik rak to look like snow.

this next one i used my all time fave stamp the Grunge Flourish
i simply stamped it using Hyacinth big and juicy stamp pad stamping in from the edge gradually taking it back a bit each time to make a tree, then added the sparkly bits, and the greeting is stamped in the same Metallic blue from Encore!.

And finally we have good old Sants himself, i used the
Father Christmas stamp & the Branch from Edward is immortal
Santa was stamped and coloured then cut out, and added with sticky pads, the branch was stamped in Brushed corduroy distress ink, then i added red berries using Christmas red stickles, and finishing with some ribbon with a merry Christmas greeting on it

and then of course inside is the best bit 

hope you like these wallets

this time i went for pink and a blue grey colour theme, i mat and layered the papers onto the card, and added the image panel slightly above the top of the card, i quite like this layout iv used it before, then the image was coloured in soft delicate pinks, the star once coloured is covered in glossy accents, i punched a lace border and added across the bottom, accented this with a pretty pretty pink ribbon, then made a bow from the same ribbon, i cut shaped and layered some flowers and finished these with a gem in the centre.
