Christmas in May at Fab'n'Funky

Good day everyone,

I hope your week is going well and that the sun is shining for you today.

We've a new challenge starting today at 
and as this is the last Wednesday of the month that means it's Christmas Time
We'd love to see how organized you are with getting those Christmas makes done early.

We are fortunate to have two wonderful sponsors this week


For my card I've used a digital image from Delicious Doodles called
"a Robin's Christmas" that can be found here.

Now this is a Teddy's aka Santa's view of Christmas. I won this lovely decoupage image and had fun putting him together cutting, just punched out the easy.
I coloured A Robin's Christmas with Copics  then cut a Poppystamps "Grand Madison Window" die to show this beautiful view.  I have to confess...I've had this die for two years and I can't remember ever having used it up until now.  I was looking for the right scene I suppose.  I dry embossed the "wallpaper" layer with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Ribbon was from my stash, berries from WOC.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Christmas Card Challenge #26 - Anything Goes
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - May Stash Challenge
Christmas Cards All Year Round - May Challenge - Santa
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll be back shortly
 with a warm weather creation for TPS...see you soon.
