PFP & Whiff Of Joy Challenges

Well good evening peeps hope you are all fine & dandy & refreshed & was back to school this morning, sickness finally stopped on Saturday.........thank goodness!!!! I still havn't took any photo's of my new car, I keep forgetting & my hubby pinched it on Sunday to tow his boat to the beach so he could go fishing, my youngest son loved every minute of it altho he was a bit green around the gills when he came back bless him.
Anyway onto tonights card, I decided that I would try something new tonight & made a Criss-Cross card, wow I absolutely loved making this, will be making more I know that lol. This card is made for PFP which the lovely Julie has chosen a photo inspiration, I took the colours & the spotties from it. Its also for Whiff Of Joy whose theme this week is layers.....hope both challenges like what I've done......
here it is.....
I'm really enjoying doing Crimbo cards at the mo so I thought that I would make this for Crimbo, red is a beautiful crimbo colour anyway & its on Julie's piccie. The papers I've used are all My Mind's Eye 'Holly Jolly' & are from Crafty Emma's Store & let me tell you they are blooming gorgeous, I'll be getting more of these. All the papers have had their edges inked with Walnut Stain distress ink. The large Poinsettia is inked with Fire Brick distress ink. Behind the poinsettia is some tulle I got from Ebay which I just fiddled with to add a bit of decoration.

Here is the inside what slides out I've kept it simple-ish so there is room to write a personal message on it. The image of course is WOJ 'Willow with Santa's Stocking' & she is coloured with Promarkers, I adore this image. The stamped sentiment is a stamp from Crafty Emma's as to are the Poinsettia's large & small & the Card Candy which are the red & gold spots I've stuck on, I've stuck these on with foam pads to give them a lift.....they are lush & you can get all colours in them.

Here is my little creation side by side lol. I really hope you like this & hope they are ok for the challenges I'm entering them into......fingers crossed.
Well thats it from me as its bed soon.....how is it it never seems long before that damn alarm clock beeps at 6.30 & I'm having to get up again!!!!
How did I do peeps....was it short, I'm thinking it was.....for me anyway lol.

Nitey nite sweet dreams everyone & thankyou SOOO much for stopping by I really appreciate your visits & your comments.
Hugs to all
