Don't Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle

Coffee of the Day - Creme Brulee

Today's post is not only a two-fer, but it's the first of two. :) so you had better grab a cuppa while you're here, or at least top off the cup you already have!

Being the first of the month, and where has this year gone btw?!?!, we have a new challenge starting over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog. as always, you can enter any Christmas card for a chance to win the prize from  our sponsor, Bugaboo.

since I am also a guest designer with Bugaboo until July, my card fits with today's Humor Me Wednesday over on their challenge and inspiration blog.

I'm using the funny 'Gertrude - Tinsel in a Tangle' image for my Christmas card. this is another one that my MIL quickly snatched up, since she said she knew the perfect person to give it to.

papers are from the My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland collection, lipstick red seam binding and natural burlap string are from Really Reasonable Ribbon, little poinsettia is from Hobby Lobby, and buttons are from my vintage stash. crystal effects covers her 'glasses' and accents were made with a spica clear glitter pen. white Mr. Huey's spray was added to the card base.

thanks for stopping by! see you in just a bit with my next post. :)

A Snowflake's Promise - anything goes
52 Christmas Throwdown -  dies and/or punches (dies for main image & mat, punches to create ends of banners)
Hiding in My Craft Room - any holiday
12 Months of Christmas - anything Christmas goes with optional silver & gold
Sparkles Christmas - use 2 dies (both by Spellbinders)

LOL, Jennifer, I love your card! Gertrude is pretty darn funny, isn't she? I love all the attention to detail you paid to coloring the image, and to the composition in general. :)
