ABC Christmas ,,, Z for Zero time left !!!! and a blog hop ,,,

Welcome to the ABC christmas Challenge blog hop. If you arrived here from lovely Lacey's blog then you are going in the right direction, if not then you may wish to start at the Challenge blog


We are sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp, so a fabulous $15 spree on offer :-)

We are also sponsored for this special occasion by a new digi stamp company called the Stamp Fairy and the designer, Gerda, will be giving away several images to a few winners !! :-)




For this challenge you can choose a challenge from the past year, you will need link a project with the linky on the challenge blog and then hop around the DT and our GD's from the Stamp Fairy DT collecting letters to make up a festive phrase on your way around.

I needed to make several cards quickly so my starting point was the Q for Quick and Easy challenge, though these will also fit in with P for Presents and X for Xmas too :-)
I used this cute Penny Black stamp yesterday too for the PTW Challenge :-) the papers are some free digi downloads from Martine's blog,which is currently closed. the sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and lots of Art Institute Crystal Glitter, Star Dust stickles and Diamond Dust



The letter you need to collect from me is 'N' and from here you need to hop on over to the lovely SQUIRREL'S BLOG,

I have a surprise candy on offer so if you would like a chance to win it just leave a link to your blog with the linky :-),,, only one link per person please x
