Bah Humbug Challenge...

It's so nice to have the Bah Humbug challenge back this week. This week has not been a good one for me as my crafting friend of 15 years passed away on Thursday. The challenge has made me come back into my craft room although my MOJO seems to have gone I have actually sat down and made a card.
Our challenge for this week is Holly and Fairies. The image this week is one of LOTV die images. Backing paper is papermania. Martha Stewart punch used along the side and I have used 2 3D Border Glitterations strips by Anita's that were in my lovely prize box that was lucky enough to win at the end of the 2010 BH challenge.
Sentiment is also LOTV. No one said the holly had to be green so I've used a Quickutz holly die but have used white card then punched out tiny circles from glitter paper using a small S.U. circle punch.

Oh Anne, I'm so sorry your friend passed away. You've been such a good friend to go see her every day just to sit there & let her know you cared. My heart goes out to you & to her family.
Glad you got back in your craft room tho. That's sometimes a pretty healing place to go ... Your card is beautiful & those colors & borders just make it ...
Hugs, Janie

Very pretty lilac card and as you say no-one says holly has to be green - especially on cards.

Hello, new follower here! I love your card, and your whole style is so appealing. Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Maybe make a card or a scrapbook page to try to capture all she meant to you? It would be a lovely thing to keep and look back on.

Hi Anne and welcome back to Bah! Humbug! Challenges. Your card is gorgeous and I really like your idea for white holly! So sorry to hear about you losing your dear friend. You must be missing her so much but I'm sure she would be pleased to know you are in your craft room being creative. My condolences to you and, of course, to her family. Take care and thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!

Oh Anne so sorry about your friend - you must be distraught. I'm so pleased you've been able to go into your craft room and create. It will help to take your mind off things a little - hopefully.
Your card is beautiful - truly beautiful and I think the holly is stunning in that gentle shade.
Thanks for joining us in our first challenge of the year at Bah! Humbug! Good luck in the draw.
