ABC Christmas Challenge 'G' for Glitz with optional Silver :-)

We had lots of lovely entries for the 'F' for Frosty Challenge so thank you to everyone who joined in :-)

this week on the ABC Christmas Challenge the theme is

'G' for GLITZ , with the optional extra of SILVER

We are being sponsored by Toucan Scraps who have gorgeous digi papers :-) So thank you to them :-)




I have just bought this gorgeous Magnolia Snowman and Snowy Circle from Simon Says Stamp. I wish I had bought these before Christmas but better late than never eh !! :-)
I stamped the circle with pigment ink and embossed with silver EP, then masked the circle and stamped the snowman with memento ink, I coloured the image a little with copics and added ice stickles and crystal gems for added Glitz :-)
The papers are magnolia and silver stardream, I also added a white panel thet was cuttlebugged with a snowflake folder and glittered. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch and some punched snowflakes too. The ribbon was from a local shop and the sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on.



The DT have made some fabulous cards this week and Samantha did some fab recycling too ,,, so head on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see them !! :-)

I am entering this card into the Just Magnolia Challenge whose theme is Easel Cards :-) I don't think they will be seeing many Christmas ones this week :-)

The Creative Cottage Challenge has Sparkle as the theme so I will enter this into that challenge too ( thanks Donna :-))

The Quixotic Challenge is Monochromatis so I think my card fits that challenge too I only used a grey and purply grey copic marker :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)
