Just Cute Bears & Friends Challenge #41 - Anything but a card

There's a new challenge starting today over on the Just Cute Bears & Friends challenge blog.  This time we are asking you to create 'anything but a card' for your entry.  Get those 'thinking caps' on and let's see what ideas you can come up with!  This is the last challenge for 2010 and you have until 1 January to submit your entry.

For my DT project I decided to use one of the baubles I bought last year and didn't use.  It's designed for you to put a couple of photographs in, they were selling them off for half price last January, and I could see lots of crafting potential for them.  Sadly, they've languished in the cupboard since then, so I was pleased to have an excuse to dig them out again.

The stamp I used is from Cuddly Buddly and called 'Heavenly Peace'.  It's quite a versatile stamp as, depending on the colours you use with it and the project, it can be Christmassy or for anything else really.  I coloured the images using Copics and added lots of Spica Glitter pen on their wings, noses, stars and the swirly bits, but it isn't showing up at all in the picture.

There is an identical image on the other side of the bauble and I filled both sides with some irridescent star shaped sprinkles before I closed it up.  They look very pretty when you shake the bauble, but hard to photograph on the move, so you'll have to take my word for it! 

I'm looking forward to seeing your creations for this challenge, it's real fun visiting all the blogs to check out the entries. Just post up a direct link to your project on the JCB&Friends blog and I'll be along to check it out.

That's it from me for today, til I see you again - Carry On Crafting !
