Santa Hunk

Time for another challenge over at

Challenge #31
Make Us Laugh

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, just remember, you must use and IKEsART image to be eligible for the prize.  Why not pop on over to the store too :), Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

Now this was rather a hard challenge, I do love colouring, I love crafting but 'jokes', - can't tell them, can't remember them and often don't get them hahahahaha.  I hope I manage to give you a laugh

The first laugh is on me - I always write my posts as soon as I create my bit of art work and get it schedulled as I have a memory like a sieve.  For some very strange reason I had totally forgotten to do this one and did not realise until I saw on the FaceBook fan page that Ginny had posted hers - oops so sorry Ike :) xx

These days it seems like Christmas comes round all to fast and with the weather in so many areas of our poor planet being up the creek. With these thoughts in mind my card was born.

I used the image 'Santa Hunk' and what a hunk he is - I wonder how many of you would like him popping down your chimney :) :) :) He was coloured with my ever faithful Promarkers and finished off with some white glitter
 Next I used some spring lamp paper to make my mats and embossed some holly on the smaller one.  The tag followed the same theme and I fussy cut one of the lambs from the DP.
 To finish off the tag I painted a chipboard sheep white - well it should be white after 3 coats but looks more cream to me!!! I also used a wee daisy button with a pink centre.
 On the inside of the card I used some more of the DP and also embossed the same holly embossing as I had on the front of the card.
 And there we have it - a global warming Christmas card :) :) :)
