Challenge #23--Christmas Card Using Non-Traditional Colours--Sarah's Turn

Greetings Stampers!!! It's challenge time again at Sundays With Crissy and this month we would like to see "Christmas Cards Using Non-Traditional Colours". That means no red & green. Now how easy is that?

For this month's challenge I actually inked up some rubber (gasp). I have been so digitally spoiled lately, LOL, but I just love this image Crissy did awhile back for High Hopes Stamps called "Christmas Kitty Fun"!! And seeing as I have two little fur babies that fit this image, that made it all the more fun. So here are Yuki (Japanese for snow) and Willow being themselves, 'cause that's just what my little darlings would do.

I learned how to make this bow from a cool site called Amazing Paper Grace. Becca does some beautiful work & has some fantastic tutorials!! I will leave the link to this one on my blog.

For more deets on my card go to my blog >>>Sally Cicada Designs!!

Now without futher ado...here are the winners of Crissy's Artist Choice Award, for last month's challenge with the theme of "Thanks/Thanksgiving"!! These are cards/projects that caught my eye for one reason or another, that I felt were the most impressive from the bunch! Ladies, don't forget to pick up your blog award badge on the sidebar for shining this month!!

And now announcing the winner for the blog candy from Challenge 22! The winner will get to choose five free digi images from Crissy's collections:
