Ike's World Challenge Blog Offers a Photo Inspiration

How is your month going? Besides the usual scurry to get gifts made and cards out, our house is still under construction. When I talked to the head contractor about a finish date, he said it "should be" finished by next week's end. Doesn't he realize that that is Christmas weekend? And I have a dinner for 12 to get ready and serve, as well as overnight guests?
We are already sleeping in the basement and have the one bathroom, so I can't even offer my son and his family (of six) that space to sleep in. So as you can read, my month is a little stressful! I sure hope yours is going more smoothly than mine.
Meanwhile, life goes on, especially in the crafting world. The challenge theme over at Ike's World Challenge Blog is a photo inspiration:
Choose a color, an element, or the general feel of the photo and create your holiday heart out (although it does NOT have to be a holiday project). I chose to be inspired by the colors, pulling the red, gold and green from it to create with Ike's Art images: My Teddy, The Cat-Mouse Tree, Jar with Holly & Peppermints & I Bopz U. I do like to use multiple images in my projects - do you think I overdid it?
Because of the house situation, my craft room is closed, so I created this 100% digital card which I have printed up on glossy cardstock and mailed to a few friends this month.
If you have time this week, be sure to link up your photo-inspired project to Ike's World Challenge Blog for your chance to win digital images from Ike's Art Store!! And have a wonderful rest of the month, and a merry Christmas!

OMGoodness - that sounds a complete nightmare with your house !! I don't know how you can cope with all that. :-(
This is such a lovely card - I really love it when you use multiple images. Thank you very much for making this for me at IWC, and I hope they can sort your house out really soon xx
