613 Avenue Create #51-Anything Goes-No Twist

We know that everyone is probably caught up in last minute holiday preparations, so we've made our challenge this week a simple one - Anything Goes with no twist. So if you need to relieve a little holiday stress, craft anything you like and submit it.  Our sponsors this week are the fabulous Rick St. Dennis and The Paper Shelter.  One easy way to make quick last minute cards is to use a pre-colored digi, which is exactly what I did using The Paper Shelter's Christmas Candy Fairy:


The card stock and DP are from my stash.  I used Nestabilites.  For the bows, I covered white card stock with Washi tape and then used a Martha Stewart punch.  The tiny sentiment is from SRM Stickers and was gifted to me by the fabulous Virginia Lu.

I'm entering these challenges:  Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #156 - Last Minute Cards or Any Not Shown Already;  Digi Designs Challenge Blog - Anything Goes Christmas Challenge; and Crazy for CAS #34 - Anything Goes.

  5. Hi Sheila, just followed a link provided by Darnell to your lovely blog. And I hope you'll find time to visit me as well. Darnell promised you had beautiful cards to share, and she's absolutely right. Loved your precolored digi & all the pretty embellishments you used to make such a pretty card. What a clever idea to use the washi tape as you did to make the cute bows. I'm off to enjoy some more of your cards, so wish you a Huge Merry Christmas. TFS & look forward to visiting again soon. I'll follow you with Bloglovin since I don't see a following link to join.
