Masculine Plaid

My title tells you what the theme is for days 10 and 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas mini challenges over at Bugaboo's challenge blog, Catch the Bug. Day 10 was to make a masculine card, and nothing says masculine more than a boy sitting in a candy cane dressed up like an elf!!! And if he can pull it off, that's my kind of guy!!!!!! I used the digital image Deacon Christmas - Candy Cane. Still doing the layering I love but trying to keep the embellishments to a minimum. I am also submitting this to the photo inspiration challenge being held at Crafty Sprouts which Bugaboo just happens to be sponsoring!!! I was inspired by the candy cane portion of the picture.

Next is day 11, use plaid. I ended up paper piecing this snow tuber's coat and hat with plaid paper. Looks like they're having fun! This image can be found HERE. I'm using the sketch from this weekend's VSN over at Split Coast Stampers in which it represents a snow globe. Again I used non holiday designer paper but the colors seemed so perfect. One more day and this mini challenge will be complete. I can't believe I have stayed with it from beginning to almost the end! For a chance at some free Bugaboo images, I'll do anything!!! Hehehe!!
