It's Funday Friday Again!

Wow...less than two weeks before Christmas! Is everyone ready? I know I'm not. We do a Secret Santa with all the adults in my family and I still have to order my Secret Gift. But at least I have my two younger nieces done. They are at the age where it's cash and gift cards. So gift cards are purchased and now to come up with a clever way to wrap them. And the house is almost decorated.

As always, you'll want to make sure to play along this week for a great prize, especially since this is our last Funday Friday of 2014.  But we'll be back as soon as ole' Father Time rings in the new year with 2015.
Our sponsor this week Bugaboo and our theme is Happy Holidays! 

And even more exciting new this week, jump over to meet our guest designer, Kitty at http://ktdesigns2013.blogspot.com/.  I think you'll definitely like what you see. I love the kitty Christmas card she made a few days ago. 

 Starts: Friday, December 12th 12:00 AM (eastern time)
Ends: Friday, December 19th 6:00 PM (eastern time)

Here is what I created for this week's challenge.
I know my teddy bear isn't colored yet but I realized I don't have the COPICS colors I want to use to color hiim in (E41, E43, E44). I have my COPICS club meeting tomorrow so I'll be purchasing them then so I can finish this little cutie  :)  I figured better to wait a day than to color it in and be unhappy with it forever....

My goal was to create a Christmas package look to the outside of the card. I cut my patterned paper and then used my metal ruler and exacto knife to slice the X across it. And the best part, you get enough to make two cards with it. 

The inside is very simple, but heartfelt.

Happy Holidays with Funday Friday

I can't believe it's Friday already - is week has really flown by for me. I think I have recovered from all the turkey and stuffing...although I'm not sure I could ever have enough stuffing...lol!

As always, you'll want to make sure to play along this week for a great prize.
Our sponsor this week Bugaboo and our theme is a sketch! 

 Starts: Friday, December 5th 12:00 AM (eastern time)
Ends: Friday, December 12th 6:00 PM (eastern time)

Here is our sketch:
 
Here is what I created for this week's challenge:


 It was a tough decision for me...did I want to create my own washi tape look or use washi tape???  Well, in the end I couldn't find the template I made for creating my own washi tape :(   So I had to use my washi tape. Even the sentiment is washi tape. The digi embellishments are from Bugaboo. Wait till you see the layout I have planned for a larger version of this bell! That's for another post :)  One of the great things about digis is you can make them any size you want.
