Red & Green Christmas

Hi Friends, I made this card for one challenge because the theme intrigued me, but it has ended up being eligible for 6 challenges. Isn't this image so.... cute, she is called Cherry Kisses, love that name and she is from Pollycrafts. Let me tell you about the challenges this little beauty is entering.
1. Pollycrafts Monday Challenge: What a challenge it is too. The title is 5"S" words, when translated means. Snowflakes - Spots - Stripes - Swirls - Sparkle. You need only pick two of the five if you wanted, I thought I'd go for them all. Spots are on my paper and ribbon. Stripes are on the paper as are the swirls, snowflake is on the brad next to Cherry, and the sparkle is on Cherry's hat jacket and trousers. What a great challenge this was. Thank you girls.
2. Friday Sketchers Challenge: The fab sketch came from Jeanette this week, there is an option if you want to take it and it's to include distressing on your project.
3. Die Cut Dreams Challenge: The theme over at Susies is to include Ribbon and Trims. Do pop over and have a peek, there is a whole new bunch of DT's coming to join Susie & Vikki, so even more exciting times ahead.
4. A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge: The theme this week is Christmas. Once again a fab challenge blog with lots of great DT work to encourage you.
5. Simon Says Challenge: Another great challenge blog, Simon had over 200 entries last week so the bar has been set, lets go for 250 this week. The theme this week is Red & Green.
6. Doodle Palace Challenge: This is my first time entering this challenge, boy do they have a lot going on over there, great candy and challenges and lovely things to buy too. The challenge this week has been set by the lovely Jude from Crafts International and it's to create a Christmas Card with traditional Red & Green with the following attachments, 1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 brads and 4 flowers.

Well I think that's enough for now. Remember to visit all these lovely blogs all you need do is click on the name. Thank you for visiting, hope you come back and see me soon.
