Yep, Christmas is definitely coming.  There's no denying it, no matter how hard some of us try.  I've already done quite a bit of Christmas pressie shopping, which is a miracle for me as I'm usually last minute.  Still, I had to get some stuff over to Cyprus this time, so thought it best to get it done.

This week's challenge #140 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS is Christmas is coming, so a no brainer on what kind of cards or projects we want this week.  Our fabulous NEW sponsor is MARIANNE DESIGNS and there's a terrific prize on offer for our winner.

For my card this week I used an image by the wonderful Kenny K and of course, it's old Scrooge himself.  The lantern and sentiment frame are Marianne dies, computer generated sentiment and my papers are from the Fancy Pants 'Country Boutique' pad.  I will say that in real life the panels and background paper seem to blend better than they look in the photo.  I love these papers though, it's a lovely pad and there are some great male suitable papers in there too.

Entering into:
OOH LA LA #116 - Christmas Sentiment.  TOP 3
ONE STITCH AT A TIME #136 - Use a digi.
FASHIONISTA #8 (wk. 2) - Anything goes.
THROUGH THE CRAFT ROOM DOOR #41 - Anything goes.
FUSSY AND FANCY #74 - Anything goes.
MAKE IT MONDAY #112 - Anything goes.

What a cool image! I'm always on the look out for great male images as I really enjoy making cards for the men, young and old, in my life:) I think your neutral colors and papers makes a beautiful background for the image. I came over from MIM to visit.

hahaha! Warts and All! I haven't seen a scrooge image yet - thanks for showing it! It's a darling card. I especially like that you have used blues in the card, giving that "cold" feeling. I love Phil Collins and was going to listen to your play list, but the first 2 songs no longer work :-( just thought you'd like to know
