Make a Stampin' Up! Monster!


stampin' up! make a monster
I've killed not two but THREE birds with this card. I'm very behind with Christmas Card Club where over a fortnight ago Chris set club members the challenge of making Christmas card featuring Santa in Blue.  I'm days late with Sue's challenge of Christmas with a theme of humour and I'm in time for the Less is More challenge from the lovely Chrissie and Mandi who've got a one layer card challenge with a theme of 3 and that is three of anything. SO.... I've Santa in shades of blue with monster humour, on  a single layer card that's got 3 monsters, 3 circles and 3 words.   Now you can't get better than that for meeting the challenges set, but if I'm honest is not the best card I've ever made but it was fun and challenged my brain as well as my masking and smudging skills! I've also entered the Sunny Challenges Circles Challenge.
Don't forget if you'd like more Christmas inspiration please do check out the other ladies in our club and if you'd like to be better prepared for Christmas then why not join the club and our challenges.  Let me know if you are interested.
I'm tired today after two days at the Summer Crafting Show in Doncaster where it was lovely to see so many friends, customers and new faces too! Thanks to everyone who visited us and in particular to Ginny from my team who brought me tea and lovely Sally an ex-demo who also brought me a cuppa. 
Thanks also to my team mate Linda for joining in on the stand and my friend Victoria who also joined in at short notice to help out a friend. 
Congrats also to the lucky winners of our raffle, Monica Jackson and Jenny Rumsby. We'll get your prizes to you very soon.
Now I'm off to bed to try to catch up on a little shut eye.
Have a great week.
Hugs Zx

This is a fantastic card! Adore the different way of using the monsters! These were the first stamps I ever got to play with from SU and have been tempted to buy them ever since but never sure whether I would use them or not. This is such a fab way of using them!
So pleased you shared it at chnc 82 so I got to see it.
Hope to see you again for the tie a ribbon challenge this week.
