ABC Christmas ,,,,, X is for X Mas !!

Wow !! I think most of you joined in with our last challenge ,, at least once !! We had hundreds of entries so thank you all for playing :-)

For the next fortnight Lacey chose the theme and she chose

X for X MAS with the optional extra of flowers

We are sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts who are giving one lucky entrant a fabulous prize of beautiful flowers :-)




For my card I used a lovely
Popcorn Bear image. I coloured him with Copics and Primapencils The papers are My Minds Eye and the flowers are Prima and the rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used a Martha Stewart Holly Punch and I made the little hanger using an oval die cut, I wrote santa ( ugh handwriting) and used a Tim Holtz Hitch Fastener :-) I used loads of ultrafine crystal glitter and Star Dust Stickles and some Glossy Accents on his nose and eye :-) the sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.



Challenges :
Pollycraft ,,,,, Glittery Christmas
Totally Gorjuss ,,,, Traditional Christmas Colours



The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see them :-)
