Crimbo Crackers Challenge 26 - Pink

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge!  And the theme this fortnight is:


Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I have a fab sponsor for this challenge:

And Anice has giving the winner of this challenge this Our Betty stamp set - thanks Anice!

If you've not visited Funky Hand recently then you'll not know about the fab new Christmas themed downloads that you can buy as part of the Oh Come All Ye Crafters collection.  There are 8 paper and 8 wordbook collections in total plus digi stamps and all are being released over the coming weeks.  And even better, you can buy the same themed paper and wordbook collection as a bundle and saving you money!

I've used the Santa Baby paper collection for my pink festive Christmas stocking and I'm feeling rather pleased with myself as this is one Christmas card I can tick off the family list!  This one will be for my niece Niamh who will be three at the end of November and is not really a pink little girl but I'm sure she will like all the sparkle and glitz on this card! Plus I don't get chance to indulge much in my pink side with having two boys - any excuse eh?!
I've used my own stocking template and added glitter glue to all the edges.  The snowflake is a Marianne Creatables die and I've covered it with glossy accents and then sprinkled glitter on it.  The beads and silver string came from a roll of fab ribbon from Lidl - its three strands all in one and they can be separated too - great value for money!

Good luck with the challenge and for more details pop over to Crimbo Crackers!
