ABC ,, ‘Y’ for Yippee "!!

Hi all ,,, are ya’ll ready for the fat guy in the red suit ?? IF you had been joining us on the ABC Christmas challenges you would have at least 24 cards ready for posting ! ,,, every little helps !!

the theme for the next 2 weeks is ,,,,

Y for Yippee ,,,, Christmas is almost here !!

so make anything Christmassy :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 voucher ( excludes shipping) on offer for one lucky entrant

Dustin Pike is offering a choice of 3 digi images

AND Karens Doodles are offering a choice of 3 digi images too

I made my card using a new unused stamp from an unmounted House Mouse Sleepy Stocking set ,, isn’t it CUTE !! look at little Monica curled up under the light bulb to keep warm ,, awww :-) I really do love these meeces ,, can ya tell ?? Smile

I coloured with me trusty Copics, they do look flushed, but thats cos they are very warm !!! :-) I inked the edges lightly with Stormy Sky DI, I glazed the bulb with Glossy Accents and then sprinkled a dusting of ultrafine crystal glitter into it before it dried ,, looks fab IRL ! The papers are Basic Grey from a Jovial paper pad and the flower is from a Prima Poinsettia pack. I used some bias tape from The Ribbon Girl, the sentiment is in the same HM set and I punched a few leaves using an EK Success punch.

We have 2 designers from Karen’s Doodles joining us for this challenge ,, so welcome aboard Shelby and Jerusha :-) Please hop on over to the challenge blog to see what they, and the DT made this time ! :-)
