December - Challenge #42: Summer Fun!

Yes, our challenge this December is 

Summer Fun 

The TWIST to make a Southern Hemisphere Christmas card

Now, this does not mean you have to make a Christmas card - only if you want to have a go at the TWIST as well. However, we would love you to use your ingenuity and imagine a friend in the Southern part of the world (Africa, South America, Antarctica or Australia) and have a go at making them a card to acknowledge the Christmas Spirit. Just remember: NO polar bears in Antartica -just penguins I am afraid!

This challenge is being Sponsored by Bizzy Bec
Bec run's an on-line store from Western Australia and she is offering us 
this die as a prize for the winner.

Thank you Bec!

Now the DT have really scratched their heads and though how they can create a card without using a stamp (digital or rubber or clear) and they have come up with some amazing ideas! Sometimes I really do not know how they are going to make something from the challenges I throw at them!!


I cut a Christmas image from a scrap of material left over from a quilting project and adhered it to my card base using spray adhesive. I then used gold puffy paint to seal the edges and wrote my greeting on with black artliner pen.

I hand made some gum nuts and gum leaves and embellished them with pens.

A very simple card with a tree die done in yellows & oranges.

Well, there you have it - and how wonderful are the ideas for Summer Fun!
Please link up your card  below and have fun creating!
