Go HERE to find Mr Linkin and join in or scroll down to where you'll find more creations to give you ideas! Here's what the team has done this week!

I decided to make a decorative accessory used the beautiful image of "Winter Fairy" from Limited Runs.



For my card and tags I used Christmas stamps #2 from our sponsor Limited Runs Stamps


Here's my card for this week, sorry it's a bit late!(even later than Cazzy!!)  I've used 'Make-it-Snappy--Skelekinz-Merry-Christmas' I've coloured her (or him) with Promarkers, added, buttons, ribbon, loads of stickles glitter, ribbon, a paper clip (because it was red) and a tiny pom-pom. The little Skelekinz has been 3D-ed with about four layers.

I've added some oldies too, just in case I didn't get done in time! (you can add an oldie as long as we haven't seen it or it's no older than the last challenge!) This one's  BearCane from Bugaboo! And below this little cute Santa and the Snowman are from Limited Runs

Hello every one, happy Sunday!!! For my today´s project I made a frame using the Christmas-Brat-Boy-Elf from BugabooStamps. I painted it using the Spectrum Noir alcohol makers.

And this is my second one, a gift bag using the Winter May digi from Limited Runs

I love Stella!!!! And as soon as I saw this Santa Died digi, it made think of some of my friends, that always said that they are good lol
This funny image was provided by our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps.

Hi everyone! Christmas is my favorite season! Love it the Sunbonnet! I made my card with a adorable Fancy Sunbonnet of our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. 
She looks beautiful with the littles winter birds. 

Sneaking in late again, and hoping I am forgiven because I have 4 more cards to show you!
The first is made with one of the Limited Runs cupcakes - this one is Trees on a Cupcake, nice and simple and just a small piece of Crafty Ribbons exclusive ribbon on this one.

This is so cute, a little dog who wants to be a reindeer from Bugaboo and he is called Puppy - enough reindeer. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.

 Another Stella card, I hope someone finds this as amusing as I do! The image and sentiment is from Bugaboo and is called Stella - Merry Christmas not Happy Holidays. 
 It is an 8"x 8" card, and I thought the Keep Calm ribbon, which is another Crafty Ribbons exclusive, was just perfect with this sentiment.

You might recognise this cupcake from the Limited Runs badge, it is called Snowman on a Cupcake! I used lots of ribbons from Crafty Ribbons on this one, can you see the three different Christmas ribbons here? I added some Stickles glitter glue and it is still wet!

We're looking forward to seeing all your fabulous Christmas Creations!
