I Can't Put My Arms Down....

Little Randy's Revenge

A Christmas Story Blip and My Inspiration

Love, LOVE, Love this movie!!
Yes, I'm one of those that will watch it when they play it ALL day long.

This card was created for the open link challenge at
Hurry over to see what the TOTALLY TALENTED Design Team Ladies have put together for this weeks

 And it wouldn't be a party without party favors...
so this weeks amazing sponsor is
 Who is graciously offering the winner...
£10 voucher to her store!!

Would you like to see who I selected for my 
Teddy Bear Thank You from
Why do I like this card so much, you ask?
Wellllll, it just goes to show that a cardmaker will create a card regardless if they have all the necessary supplies or not and will also use all their resources available to them.
This card was created using internet images, gift wrapping paper, hand drawn scallop and homemade foam squares.  
I think it's a true tribute to the mission of every crafter...

"Craft it if ya got it and even if ya don't!"

The Bully Gets His
As soon as I saw this image, The Snow Suit, from
Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, I knew I had to make a card showing poor little Randy.
I used lots of Copics, Stickles, white acrylic dimensional writer and white embossing powder all atop the Pearl EX dusted sky and cardstock torn snow, to create the scene of the bully just about to get his.

Hope you've enjoyed this post and please come visit us at
and link up your wonderful creations!!

Hugs and Happy Stamping....
Lisa xx

Adorable image. I always laugh like an idiot when the bully gets his in The Christmas story. It's kind of vicarious revenge for all the bullies I've known in my life. (I know. I'm terrible.) My late son was also one who would watch that movie all day long on Christmas. It's a very fond memory for me. Hugs!
