The Twelth Punch Cup of Christmas for the Funkie Junkie Challenge

It's fitting that it snowed today which mean I got a cool photo (pun intended) of the last ornament for the Funkie Junkie challenge and that I used a fussy cut photo of Duncan. He thinks the snow is for eating, snowplowing with his nose, skidding on the driveway and catching snowflakes on his tongue. You'd think he didn't grow up just down the road in Pennsylvania where...they have snow! Musta forgotten from last year to this...

I had to use a photo of Duncan as I still haven't acquired any plaid...and Linda's tag over at the Funkie Junkie was a lot of plaid!

Let me show you one of Duncan's Christmas photos and then Linda's tag...

He is sporting a lovely plaid tie...and thinks quite a lot of the whole get-up....see how it makes sense now?

Linda's tag has gems, dots, and lots of plaid! So you can see it was a slam dunk...(second pun intended!). 

I have managed to use snowflakes and metal keys for each ornament. The key on this one got sprayed with adhesive and covered in red glitter to match the red glitter on the inside of Linda's folded tag. I used a shimmery clear piece of holly to match hers.

I also used the word "RELAX" because I imagine Linda is finally feeling all kinds of happy....the twelve tags are done and it's a slide into the holidays at this point! It's also a word I'm saying to Duncan quite often. He gets so excited! I also tell him his middle name is Pestilence...

The good news is that the little tree is FULL of these ornaments...I just have to make the tree topper and I'll show you them all in one place! Fun times!

I'll also show you photo of our Christmas stockings...I happen to know mine has some Funkie Junkie in it and I cannot wait to put it to use! Linda's store The Funkie Junkie Boutique sponsors this challenge so I was quite happy to shop over Black Friday!

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Here comes the final Cup ! Its glamorous ,I loved the pretty peachy color and the glittery red key pops !

  2. Groaning from those puns!! Loving the red glitter. We have Cody [son & DIL's dog] 'visiting' for a few weeks....so it's interesting times here. Wally copes being an Only Sibling much better than a sharing one! Duncan looks amazingly handsome & dapper in his Christmas Get Up, I must say!!!!!

  3. Nice nice final cup and LUV the photo of your Gentleman Doggie Duncan. We think the cat ate the ribbon or some wild animal broke into your house and had a Ribbon Party. But certainly not Duncan with that angelic expression.
    Looking forward to your tree outcome.

  4. Your final cup is SO PRETTY!! I really like the sassy little Duncan in there. (Private joke!!) ha ha ha

    Now I know what the culprit looks like and I have to say I would LOVE him just as much as you do. :-) How could anyone be angry with such a CUTE face looking back at you?!!

    BEAUTIFUL work as always Mitra! Thank you for sharing your inspiration and your MARVELOUS talents!!

    Can't wait to see your tree!

  5. I'm looking forward to seeing your tree too but if by some chance I don't get back here over the next couple of days I want to wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas

  6. I love that face!!!! Adorable puppy and oh so cute in the finale. Awesome job, chica. I'm virtually high fiving you to the Christmas tree!!

  8. Duncan is SO cute! Love that you put him in the punch cup! Your glittery red key is FAB and it's so cool to see the cup sitting in the snow :)

    I'm delighted that you played along again this year for The 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. Congratulations on crossing the finish line! Hope to see you back again for next year's challenge.
