I am a Wiking!!!

Another dude from Creep Cute Crochet, an expansion pattern from Christen's Blog for a Viking or Wiking as he's known! I added plaits and whiskers to make him into true exponent of Wiking Power!!

Hope you had a Happy Christmas and want to wish you a lovely 2012!!!

Bombshell Miss December's Challenge

Torrey is Miss December and her challenge to us this month is:

Now I bet you’re all anticipating that this month’s challenge will have something to do with the Holidays. If so, you’d be Miss Staken, as it has NOTHING to do with the Holidays, whatsoever (that is unless YOU want it to). Want a hint? Here’s a little “word-association” glimpse into my creative psyche to guide y’all to our theme this month. This could be scary. Ready?
December – Christmas – Snow – Cold – Hot – Radiator – SteamPunk
(you with me?)…and that leads us to this month’s CHALLENGE… 

....“Hot and Steamy” – a Steampunk challenge.

I LOVE steampunk so I was very excited about this challenge.
At first I did toy with turning the Ship from Homeward Bound into a flying steampunk vehicle but then decided to use  Rose's Portrait  instead !

 I used clear shrink plastic to make the small cogs from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die for Rose's hair and to decorate the card. My daughter thought Rose looked like the 'Eye patch lady' from the recent series of Doctor Who but I think Rose looks much kinder than her!
