A Quick Quirky Reminder

Challenge #14 over on Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog  is already in its second week so there's still plenty of time to join in! It's all Jolly Jingle Bells and Red Noses's coz the challenge is a nice and easy one,  
Christmas In July, there's no excuse! Come and Join in! Although, I have one for being soooo late! Very very busy! Honest! I've added some oldies to the challenge for now because I knew I'd never be ready in time, but at last, here's my this weeks card. (actually I've done two (wow knock me down with a wet feather) but I might save that one for later in the week... as its not finished yet.
 Here's the card. I've used 'Make-it-Snappy--Skelekinz-Merry-Christmas'
by Bugaboo, although I've put in my own sentiment 'Merry Kissmas'  (Using the freebie font 'GoodDog Plain)
The paper I luckily found already printed out. Which is great when all my stuff is packed away. It's really cute with lots of little doodles! Not sure where it came from though. Perhaps you know?
 The red and silver star was somehow stuck to my coffee cup (it didn't come that way it just 'happened') I thought it looked better on the card!
Red buttons, a red paper clip and loads of layering with silver and red and three-D-ing, and I've added a tiny pom-pom to his/her hat. The little skele-elf has about four layers.
This time the silver glittery card started life as one of those long gift bags you put a bottle of wine in. Well the wine's been drunk, ages ago and the bag was a bit hang on, cat allert! Mr Jinx is sittng on my laptop!!! Where was I? Oh yes, ...a bit crumbled, so I cut it up and used it here. All the little cut out bits come from the backing paper. I've added green dotty ribbon, a little silver snowflake and loads of Stickles glitter. 
In side I've made  a pocket to add Christmas vouchers or money! Well, that's about it! Must go! or I'll never get up in the morning! Don't forget to pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in! Thank you for stopping by! I'll try to add this to some..

  4. Lyn!!! This one is beyond adorable. Love the colors and all the little details. Great job.

  5. Great to see you crafting again, even if you can't get in your craft room! You did well without it. I don't know the paper but I like it. Now you have to put some money in for the recipient who will love this card!

    1. Thanks Cazzy! Honestly every little bit was a 'real bit' left over form something else. Can't get in the door again...its impossible to clear everything out... as soon as we have all has to go back in again!

  6. Cute card! Good use of the bag! So glad Jinx is able to help out! :) Mine like to help too!

    1. Jinx always likes helping! but even he keeps out of my craft room now- if he ever chased a mouse in there...well... things will fall on him!
