Christmas on Mars?

I may have pushed the boundaries too far this time folks! Danielle, our lovely hostess and setter of challenges for the month of February at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown has chosen felt embellishments for this week. I looked in the shops and in my boxes of stash and couldn't find anything that I thought would make a Chistmas card. Look at these wonderful embellies Danielle found to inspire you
I had felt cupcakes, and moons, stars and sheep, and aliens. So I had to think a bit more laterally - Hey I can do aliens!!
So this is my Christmas card, a heat embossed silver tree, trimmed with blue and red gems and a little felt alien, matted onto some very martian green dp. Oh, you need to see inside -

It's a different style for me and I'm going to have to think hard who I will send it to, not aged aunts or well respected community members, but I have lots of friends who like a laugh and I'm sure it will end up in appreciative hands! So go on, push your creativity too, there are lots of challenges out there.


  1. Absolutely AWESOME Louise!!! This had me giggling out loud with glee over how creatively you did this . I think it would be a tremendously fun card to get for Christmas. Thanks for being such a great sport about it! Hugs D

  2. Louise - I said it before and I will say it again - this is fabulous. Love your creative thinking on this - your Christmas alien is so cute! - Jacqueline xx

  4. You are so clever Louise - I love the way you thought outside the box here! We would definitely appreciate that card in this family! Vicky x

  5. Louise, I adore this! Your alien is too fun and I LOVE that silver tree with colored bling! FABULOUS card! HUGS, friend! :)

  6. This made me chuckle Louise! Wow, what creative thinking from you this week, that would have had me stumped for sure but you've made such a fab and fun festive card - brilliant!

  7. I think your card is very whimsical and fun! The sentiment ties it all together. Good for you for using the resources you already had - although I do have wonder why you had a felt alien to begin with, LOL!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
