Shapes or/and Fancy Folds at CCAYR

You are gonna love the challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round this month and we can't wait to see what you have to share with us.  Our fearless leader Tracey chose this fun challenge:  "Shapes or Fancy Folds – Create a card that is a shape or incorporates a fancy fold.  You could do a circular card, step card, easel card, etc, so long as it is shaped or folded."

Prize from Beccy:
3 Digi Images

I chose to use one of my Go Create XXL Frilly Square dies for my shape along with an easel fold.  Our sponsor this month is Beccy from Beccy's Place and I chose this adorable Holly Fairy by Beccy.  You can get her HERE.  She is colored with Copics, added Gold Stickles to the bells and her hat.  The holly branch die is by Cheery Lynn and I've added 1/2 red pearls for the berries.  Spellbinders Scalloped Circle and a lace doily are attached behind the image and holly branch.  The sentiment is computer generated and the poinsettia and leaf are from my stash.  Here is a picture of the inside.

Phew, now that the deets are done I can visit for a few. Another crazy week around here with doctor appointments, etc.  Conley is having some dental implants done and stage 2 was completed this week.  Now we have to wait 4 months to make sure the bone doesn't reject the implants before the teeth can be attached.  It's only 2 teeth,,,,,,,,,,LOL  not like a whole mouth full.  I can't even imagine having that much metal in my mouth but if I ever need a lower plate I think I might, you notice I said "might"  I have to have the gas and gums deadened to get them cleaned.

Challenges I'm Entering:
ABC Christmas Challenge - V for Vibrant
Christmas Card Challenge - Pop It Up
52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Die Cuts or Punches Pieces
Anything Goes - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Get In Shape

Please stop over at the CCAYR blog to see the wonderful inspiration by my DT sisters.  You have a whole month to enter the challenge and we'd love to see your design.  We are hoping for 500 followers before the end of the year and are almost there (452) so please click on the "Join This Site" and play along with us.

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see  you again soon.
"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)
