12 Days of Christmas Day 12

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care... in the hopes that BAD Santa would soon be there?

Well it's official, Christmas is over, did Santa bring you everything you wanted? NO? Me neither.
Anyway this is the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas SBS Challenge and I am getting this in at the last minute. Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas with no Bad Santas. See you in the New Year

Non Traditional Christmas

 I am so excited to share this card with you! This is the first time I have colored up one of my New Sweetpea Images, isn't she just lovely! The image is called Shining on. I've been wanting to do a card in browns and I think it turned out pretty good, the image is so beautiful it doesn't matter that my coloring is a bit off. LOL!

There is glitter on this card but alas it just doesn't photograph well. (or I need a better camera )
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for looking!

12 Days of Christmas Day 10

Jingle Bells, Batman Smells, Robin laid an egg, the Batmobile lost a wheel and the Joker got away! HEY!

It's  day 10 and today the challenge was to create a project with any SBS images and turn them into Christmas Carolers... or if you would please... SCARE-olers! I used this fun little verse from Carmen's Veranda Stamps (out of business?)
I have had it for 15 years! YIKES!
This was the perfect opportunity to use it.

Thanks for looking!

12 Days of Christmas Day 9

Today the challenge was the ghost of Christmas past. I went with a masculine feel for the card and used Mercius as my ghost and Damien as my Scrooge. I used rock candy distress stickles around Mercius, it blurred the ink but I like how it looks, ghoustly.

Thanks for looking!

All I want for Christmas is... My Emos!

12 Days of Christmas Day 7
So todays challenge was to incorporate any SBS My Kids Emo image with your Christmas project,
and to use this color combo: Purple, Lime Green, and Turquoise!

Betty has been going around her house singing "All I want for Christmas is You!" it's one of her favorite songs and I love that song too, but I don't sing. Every time my husband asks me what I want for Christmas, every year, I answer "YOU!". So this was a fun card to make, I used shy little Prezzies for Lola Digi, isn't she cute! Thanks for looking!

12 Days of Christmas Day 6

The Children all snug in their beds, while visions of Steampunks danced in their heads!

The challenge was to create a Merry Steampunk project for day 6 of the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge. This is my very first steampunkish card and I really like how it turned out. I love the vintage feel. I would have liked to use some gears instead of the metal flowers, but I didn't have any. I just happened to buy some Steampunk Debutante Papers from Graphic 45 last week so I guess I got lucky there! I was really excited to use Emma from the Steampunk Gang by SBS, she is a beauty! Thanks for Looking!

Ohhh, He's the Oogie Boogie Man!

It wouldn't be Christmas at The Burtonesque Dolls without the most beloved Burton Villain Oogie Boogie! We challenge you to create a Christmas Project and include your version of the Oogie Boogie Man!

I had a lot of fun making this card, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for Mr. Boogie. If you are familiar with Disneyland's Haunted Mansion Holiday then you know where the inspiration for this card came from. It's one of my favorite parts of the ride! Enjoy!

I Witch you a Merry Christmas...

It's Day 5 of The 12 Days of Christmas and today we were challenged to use our favorite SBS Witch for the Holidays. I went with Witch Betty of course! I used the Christmas Tree from Rio trimming the tree, I think they paired up nicely.

The prize today is really cool, the winner gets to pick a personalized Digi, very cool! I don't think that this card will be a winner today, but I just love playing along. And I am doing all 12 days so I can be in the running for the Design Team Guest spot for January, wish me luck! Thanks for looking!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree your branches are so dry and Creepy!

It's day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge at Simply Betty Stamps and Betty has added a twist to a traditional Christmas song.
So you can guess what the challenge is right... using any SBS image incorporate a Creepy Christmas Tree! In my opinion you can't get any creeper than Daniel Torrente's Images by Stampotique. Thanks for looking!
