Fab 'n' Funky ~ Creating For Christmas

Hey lovely crafty pals. How's your week going? It's Wednesday today and that means a new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky and as we did last year, we are aiming to get ahead with our Christmas crafting this year. I can't believe how few cards I sent this Christmas. I really need to start posting in November! What's your Christmas routine?!

I've created this card with a fun printable image from a blog called Funky Polkadot Giraffe. This was a free printable from this site. I've layered it over an embossed panel and then tied red candy stripe baker's twine around those layers and added silvery jingle bells in two different sizes. 

I layered this over a fun bright Christmas paper from Recollections called Christmas/Noël/Navidad. I then finished with some diecut stars I've had in my stash since the beginning of my crafty days. The stars came with a magazine as a 'starter kit' for crafters. Gosh, we're going back 'years' there! So it's fab to finally use them!

I hope you'll come and join us this week for our Christmas challenge. It's 'Anything Goes' as long as it's a Christmas creation. I really do need to start earlier than I did last year. So I'm really happy to have these challenges to encourage this! I'll be back again soon with another crafty adventure, until then, have a fab week and happy 'Christmas' crafting! Hugs, Wends xoxo
