Sending Warm Fuzzies...Inspirational Challenge #98

Hello,

Yes, it's beginning to look at lot like Christmas (well, provided you're organized, which I am not), but not here at Inkspirational!  This week, my fabulous DT
and I are joined by amazing, talented, Shirley from shirley-bee’s stamping stuff (proof that she's amazing? Se has her  own line of stamps, The Bee’s Knees, sold through STAMPlorations and she's a hot commodity, being on several design teams. She is cool!), to invite you to Inspirational Challenge #98  


Given that for the last 8 million weeks I've been doing nothing else but Christmas, this challenge is a challenge! But I managed (she says, sheepishly). See...


I know...I'm the goofball on this DT! In my defense, I did follow the rules: not a Christmas card (although used a Christmas-themed set). In fact, I also used the challenge 'title' and, purely by fluke, wound up using the challenge badge colours. I almost went with a green background and red bow but slapped my hand before doing so!

If you're caught up in the hustle and bustle that comes with this wonderful season, and are feeling a little 'Bah Humbug', then this card's for you! Warm fuzzies coming your way!

Hope my card made EWE smile! 

We have one slight change in this challenge: since we're not taking a Christmas break (nope, uh uh, not us...), we ask that you submit only one entry, please.

Looking forward to seeing your *Bah, Humbug* inspired card in the gallery! Enjoy the next week...Christmas countdown is on!!

Thank you so much for dropping in during this busy time! So appreciated!!

I love your card. I have to make one like it for her birthday. Where can I find the lamb? Since it is anything but Christmas, I guess I will not be saying: Merry Christmas"!

Jeanne said...

Absolutely fabulous card, Carol! I adore every detail in (on?) it! Thank you for the eye candy you share and for your generous and positive spirit that exudes from your blog. I adore your "goofball" self! :)

This is so darn cute, Carol! To tell you the truth, I don't know why all challenges aren't 1 entry per player. Might actually make things more fair, too, but what do I know?!

Ha! That is just adorable! I love the purple and the cute little sheep! And kudos to you for using a Christmas set in such a cute but non traditional way! Love it!! ((Hugs))

Super adorable card, Carol! I love that sheep! Sorry it has taken me so long to stop by! It's that crazy time of year, ya know! :-) Merry Christmas!

Being from the 'land of sheep' I couldn't let this post go by without letting you know how sweet and funny it is. And how funny you used the DT badge colour too!! Hope you had a spectacular Christmas with the family and that your 2016 is a happy, healthy and crafty one!!!!
