A partridge in a pear tree bbtb !!

Happy monday everyone !! what a frustrating weekend for me my internet and power kept going off due to the snowfall !! So i am late getting my challenge in this week. Regina asked the bbtb team to use the bare tree from stretch your imagination but to use it with a christmas theme let me tell you this was a hard one !!
I decided to use that new classy charm font that ScrapNfonts kindly gave me and joy of the season for the pears and partridge. I cut my tree 4 times and layered it but i embossed the top tree with the cuttlebug, the pears are cut in shiny gold which doesn't show up very well on this pic ! I added stickles to the edges of the torn paper to make the snow look a little wet. This looks so much better in real life !! The design team did amazing this week so many wonderful ideas you can see what they all did HERE

Ho Ho Ho ! BBTB weekly challenge !

Hey happy monday everyone !! i love my card this week it looks so christmasy and snowy in real life even my hubby said wow lol !! The designers at BBTB were asked to use the mickey cars from mickey and friend cart and i had just got my new martha stewart branch punch so i was determined to use the two !! I'm also going to use this card for one of the challenges at hallmark scrapbooks which was to use one of the santa hats.
Car was cut at 3" and santa was cut from the paper doll cart at 2" and the trees also cut from paper doll at 2" 2.5" and 3". i then covered the trees with the punched out branches.
I used glossy accents on the headlights and the wheel centres, snow writer on santas hat and the trees. Lace stickles on the snowy ground and some on the trees, white cats eye chalk and distress inks. ho ho ho was hand written. Thanks for looking and i love reading your feedback check out the other designers wonderful creations HERE

The stamp is from inkidinkidoo. Thanks for looking !!

SCRAPNFONTS a wonderful online font store sponsered the challenge for all the BBTB designers and we had Tis the season modern dingbats and the classy charm font to use on our project !! Oh yes they are also the sponsers for the new contest going on over at th BBTB site !

Regina asked us to use the card from the christmas cheer cart as our canvas but i didn't read my e mail properly and made a box from the wild cart cartridge !
