CHNC challenge 101: make it girlie

How did we get to December so quickly? It's time to get serious about Christmas now ... and that means I should get on with some present shopping as well as continuing to make Christmas cards.

Thank you for so many lovely entries for last week's challenge - great to see so many projects made for those special people in our lives.

Before I get on to today's challenge, I need to let you know the winner of challenge 100. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner and this is the result of using

Number 52: Lacey Stephens
who shared this lovely card:

Let's see if we can get at least 100 'likes' by the end of the year.

Challenge 101
For today's challenge I'm asking you to make your
Christmas card girlie

Today's challenge is being generously sponsored once again by Whoopsi Daisy - the randomly-picked winner will receive their choice of two sheets from Linnie's Whoopsi Daisy shop.

Whoopsi Daisy Digi Stamps features all hand drawn images by the amazing Linnie
and specialises in cute images of children.
Whoopsi Daisy offers a great deal for your money.
Take a look at the
where you are certain to find awesome images which will fit all your creative needs.

For my card I used an image of Rosie from Daisy & friends (a CD designed by Linnie), digitally cropping around her to cut out the white background, doing the same with the postbox image and then digitally mounting on to a snow scene, adding some extra snow by using transparency fade, adding the sentiment and then printing it all out and mounting on a red card blank. I added some stickles diamond to the edging of Rosie's coat and hat and a bit of liquid pearls white opal to some of the snow. More about this here on My Crafty Outlook.

Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques, as long as the end result is a Christmas card - and this week please make make any Christmas card you like as long as it is 'girlie' - I leave you to interpret that how you wish - little 'girlie' or grown up 'girlie' - the choice is yours!

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge - please add a link to your blog post (not your blog, but the actual post where your card can be found) by 22:00 UK time Friday 7 December.  Please mention my blog and create a link within the post for your creation.

You can enter as many times as you wish (a good way to build up your stock of Christmas cards) and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.

A new challenge will be set on 8 December.
