Bugaboo Holiday Chaos- Final Entries

I finally found some time to finish my final entries for the annual Bugaboo Christmas Chaos event. This one is for Day 4’s ABC Challenge. I made a silver tag that features a sweet little Bugaboo snowman. I added a bit of color to the digi to match the gift wrap, then added a layer of acetate that I’d embossed with snowflakes atop the snowman. I love the clear texture and depth it adds to the tag, while safely tucking the little snowman beneath its icy surface!

My final entry is for the Day 6 Photo Challenge. Although my card doesn’t include a large critter, it reflects a few other elements from the photo: a scenic background (upcycled from an old calendar), an adorable little girl (angel), and some flashes of red (her shoes and belt.) I muted the background with a layer of vellum to look similar to the hazy air in the inspiration photo. The sentiments add to the Christmas theme of the card. (Then sentiment on the inside is precious to me. It is actually a tag I recently found in my files that is nearly four decades old! When I was in college I made money at Christmas by selling hundreds of handmade and handpainted dough ornaments 
(not Fimo dough but the old flour/salt kind of dough!) Psalm 91:11 has always been a favorite scripture verse, so I created little tags that attached to little angel ornaments, which were some of my best sellers! I added the little stars to cover a few smudges and rips on the nearly vintage sentiment tag… and then added stars to the front to match. So fun!)
I’m entering this card into several challenges including the Path Of Positivity whose current challenge has an optional twist-Rejoice. The challenge  is to “Create a project that depicts thankfulness or gratitude in some way.” The sweet angel digi, named “Nobody’s Perfect”, with a crooked halo and slightly confused look on her face reminds me that no matter what is going on around me, or even within me, I can rest on the promise in Psalm 91:11 that I am never alone. God even has assigned angels to watch over me! How neat is THAT?!

  2. Such a lovely card with this sweet somewhat disheveled angel! Yes, there is definitely great joy in this beautiful verse. Wonderful torn edges and perfect background make for such a beautiful card! Thanks for sharing with us at Path of Positivity! ~Katrina

  3. Hi Kathy your cards are gorgeous. I love them all. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. Wonderful projects Kathy, you've done a great job as always. I love the textured acetate on your first tag, it's a cute way of adding the snowflakes over the little snowman... who is adorable by the way! The silver background looks great and reflects the pattern beautifully.
    Your bingo tag is so festive and fabulous!. The little elf image is very cute and you've done a great job with the colouring. I also like the shaped die cut mat.
    Your last card is very special... the addition of the tag and the wonderful story that goes along with it is just lovely. I'm sure it will be well loved by whoever receives it.

  5. Your projects are gorgeous. Thanks for joining our challenge over at the Digi Doodle Studios challenge blog. Good luck!
