Christmas is all about the kids!

Hi,
 It's my turn to share  my card for this months challenge theme set by Amandawhich is:

Christmas is all about the kids.

The lovely Anice has prepared a fab funky freebie if you don't own any Funkyhand goodies. The only challenge rule is that you use at least one Funkyhand product. So show us what you can make as there is a prize of any download from Funkyhand.

I decided to do a card:

I used papers from trad ole christmas papers download and cut it into a strip then scored the paper on a score board then glued the join together and attached some die cut snowflakes.

I printed out the Funkyhand Santa digital stamp from the oh come all ye crafters digital stamps download and coloured it with promarkers, added glossy accents for his glasses and plenty of glitter.

Just a little bit of inking around the paper edge, some bakers twine,  typed a sentiment and card candi and it was all done.

There's still a couple of days left before the end of the challenge so we'd love to see what you've created.Remember to check out what the rest of the funkettes have created over the last month  over at Get funky.  Also there's lots of ideas of how we've used the new downloads over at Funkyhand.
