ABC 'O' For 'O' Christmas Carrot Tree :-)

Hi all :-) Christmas is only 153 days away !! It won't be long now before the big fella comes down the chimney ! :-) I have a box for my cards which is filling up nicely, thanks to the ABC Christmas Challenge,,, it really does make you keep going throughout the year so no last minute panic buying ready made ugh ones :-)

This time our lovely Wilma is hosting the challenge and the theme for the next fortnight is ,,, 

 'O' for O' Christmas Tree 

We are sponsored by the lovely Jodie owner of  Bugaboo Stamps and you could win 7 digis !! 

Thanks Jodie :)

I LOVE Bugaboo, but I was having a fight with my printer and decided to use my old faithful Happy Hopper Carrot Tree instead :-)

Aren't they CUTE trimming their tree with carrots ,,, awww :-)

I made the carrot embellies using the Silhouette Cameo Machine :-)

Looking at this card now, I think the bias tape looks too perfectly ironed ,, I will scrunch it up a bit now :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them :-)
