Dude Time Doodles Challenge - Holidays

It's time for the very last Dude Time Doodles challenge - the doors are closing on the 15 December and we have a final new release hop next Wednesday - 28 November. Then after that, Dude Time Doodles are no more.  I've been with the team since the first challenge way back in October 2010 and I've totally enjoyed my time with the team.

I shall miss the Dude and Dudettes and the images - but I'll still be able to use the ones I have so not all is lost!

So, our last challenge is:


And here is my typical Christmas scene with Kris Jingle who has been coloured with Promarkers plus stickles.  The papers are from Funky Hand and are part of the Oh Come All Ye Crafters Collection - Stylish Tree download.  I've made the card so that the image opens out.

The sentiment is from a stamp set that I'm ashamed to say I've had for a few years and this is the first time it's been inked up!  The snowflake is a Marianne Creatables die and I've added some funky Christmas lights as extra decoration.  The letters have been cut with my Sizzix Girls are Weird alphabet set.

A bit of faux stitching and some gold glitter glue and the card is complete!

Please show your appreciation for the rest of the Design Team - they can be found on my sidebar or on the main challenge blog - we've had a blast and we hope you have too!
