Wednesday 27 November 2019


Good morning, it's the last week of November (how did that happen?) so our theme at Fab'n' Funky is Anything Christmas - we regularly have a Christmas themed challenge on this last Wednesday of the month, it really does help us to get ahead with our Christmas makes.
I made a card featuring a fun image from Mo Manning- Coal. This was October's freebie Patreon image, it's now available here in the shop. I just love the look on this naughty little one's face, she's totally unperturbed to be getting coal in her stocking, obviously knows it's all she deserves! I added a stamped sentiment to the front of the card to keep it closed, oh, how often have I used that warning to get the grandkids to do as I want them to!  The sentiments that came with the image 
are on the inside...

Well the big day is getting very close now...time to panic if you haven't started on your cards!
If you're stuck for ideas hop over to Fab'n' Funky to see what my clever teamies have created this week, then why not share one of your own festive creations, we'd love to have you play along.
Thanks for stopping by
have a lovely day

ahahahhaah! Best "naughty" Christmas card EVER! Chris, this is beyond darling, and look at the expression on your little "bad girl"! Is it a self-portrait? I think so - it's a gorgeous card. I especially like that blue patched heel on her Christmas stocking! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US - it's a perfect time to say how grateful I am to have you in my life - to enjoy the inspiration and fun of your on-line creations - and to exchange the occasional email. Big hugs, de

She looks a proper little madam with that cheeky look on her face. Love the dark red and all the white space on the image looks really great against the lovely papers.
