Bah Humbug Challenge - Scarves & Mittens

Good morning to you all and welcome to the latest challenge from the ladies at Humbug Hall
This is my 3rd week as a Guest DT and I am enjoying being part of this super blog.
The theme this week is
Scarves & Mittens
suitable for this wet and windy we are having, but also of course for Christmas.
I have two cards to share this week, the first one is an image taken from Giordano Christmas Creations CD, printed onto Glossy Card. I little Glamour Dust is added for sparkle. The backing papers are from my Christmas stash and I added Gold Peel Offs for a finishing touch.

My second card is stamped using a Snowman stamp designed by Elisabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy
Coloured using Promarkers before cutting out with my Scalloped Oval Nestie Die. I placed him on some Red leather look card before layering onto paper, again from my christmas stash.
I enjoyed making them both and the reason for two this week, well, I wasn't entirely satisfied with the first card so decided to have a play with stamps and promarkers. When I submitted my cards to Humbug Hall for approval the ladies kindly said they would show both on their blog.

Next week is my last week as a GDT.
Do pop over to Bah Humbug's Blog to see the fabulous creations from Ann, Max & my fellow GDT Wendy, you won't be disapointed.

Hi Christine,
We both loved your cards again this week and couldn't understand why you were even a teeny weeny bit unhappy. The cute puppy being carried in the snow is definitely an 'Aaaaaahhhh' image and the backing papers are lovely match. Your snowman just looks as if he's singing "fa-la-la" as he skips through the snow lol!
We Humbuggers have both turned up empty handed this week ... shameful I know but Ann has been wrapped up in her new grandson and I have suffered from a bad case of 'Barf Humbug' ... say no more!
