Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Being a brand new month it is time for a new challenge hostess which is mwah!

With Christmas just around the corner for our challenge this week you will need to incorporated something starting from each of the letters in the word 'NOEL'

Here are a few suggestions to help you, but of course you are not limited to these ... Use your imagination!
N = Nativity, navy, natural
O = olive, orange, octagon, oval, ornaments
E = embossing, emerald green, eyelets
L = lace, lines, liquid appliqué

For my card today I used the following things to complete the word “Noel” …. N = Noel; O = Ornaments; E = Embossing and L = Lines.


For the front of my card I used a new Stampendous House Mouse image called Gift’s Galore. I love House Mouse and it is fun to have a new one Smile.

I embossed the front of my card using Couture Creations A Magical Time embossing folder.


For the inside of my card I used my Sizzix Pop N Cuts Noel Insert with the Sizzix Pop N Cuts A2 Card base. I also used the Sizzix Noel Sizzlits set to layer the word Noel.

One the top section of my card I used designer paper that has ornaments all over it (the ‘O’ in the challenge) and along the bottom part of my card I used designer paper with lines on it (the ‘L’ in the challenge).


Here is another view of the inside of my card. The sentiment on the lower portion of my pop up uses the Sizzix Wavy Labels Framelits set.
