OSAAT challenge 37 - Anything goes Christmas - Christmas Crackers

Happy Halloween, I hope the day is going well.

Today is another OSAAT challenge and this week it is to make anything that fits with the theme of traditional or modern Christmas.

I got a gorgeous fairy bear image to play with by JLJ Designs and decided it would be fabulous as part of a set of Christmas crackers for my grandaughters - so of course there had to be some pink in it.

There are several sponsors this week with some lovely prizes up for grabs.

Easycraft are giving a £10.00 voucher.      
I am Roses has some flowers to give away.
Michelles scrapbooking and more is giving a $10 voucher.

So go on over and look at the fabulous inspiration from the OSAAT Design Team.


I have to say I bought the crackers but I added the pink ribbon and the image plates.

The fairy bear was coloured in Photoshop Elements and then I added shading by adding colour with Promarkers. I also added glitter to the wings, then cut the image out and set it on a grey Nestabilities Labels 4 plate.

I am going to look for some 'PINK' challenges to enter this in to as we all know it is breast cancer concern month and it is something we all need to be aware of.

Enjoy the rest of your day and the week ahead. I will not be around much again for 4 weeks as I will be working almost 24/7, but come the second week in December I will have finished and be back to visiting as well as creating and making.

Take care. Luv B xxxx
