The FIRST ABC Christmas Challenge :-)

Oohh isn't this exciting !! I have been asked to be GD on THE FIRST ABC CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE :-)

The theme this week is ,,, can ya guess ????

A for Angels :-) With the additional request to use a charm and/or beads on your creation :-)

The Challenge is being sponsored by Charm Supplies so for a chance to win some lovely charms just join in !! :-)

For my card I really wanted to use one of my new Magnolia stamps that I pre ordered :-) I do think Edwin is often overlooked ,,, maybe that is why he looks so miserable !!! :-) ha ha, not looking very 'Merry Christmas' is he !!!! :-)

I coloured Edwin with copics and decoupaged him onto his piano :-) The papers are My Minds Eye and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts set. The ribbon and charm are from my stash :-) I also used some stickles and a few Basic grey gems to sparkle it up a bit :-)

I don't know why, I have tried several times to get some decent photo's but they're all looking 'blue' ,, maybe to refelct his mood ,,, :-) I will try to adjust the settings on my camera and get better piccy's later :-)

The DT have made some fabulous creations for your inspiration ,,, so pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see them :-)
I will be doing the random draw thingy later to see who won the Tilda stamp from the Hop so pop back later to see if you were lucky ! :-) A list of winners will be published on the Challenge Blog later today ;-)

This is a fortnightly challenge ,, so you have 2 whole weeks to enter !! I am determined to get better organised for next Christmas so I will be definitely joining in this one ,,, and the other Christmas challenges over the coming year :-) I have even bought a nice Christmas box to put them in !! :-)

We are requesting that you turn off the word verification option on your blog,,, some of you may not even realise it is switched on as it is set to 'ON' by default ! It takes us sooo much more time to leave comments and it is so unnecessary. You can use the owner approval option instead to screen your comments :-)
Thank You for your co-operation :-)

Happy New Year to you all :-) x x

Creative Inspiration Challenge GD card :-)

This is my last week as GD on the Creative Inspiration Challenge :-) I would like to thank the girls for having me along so this card is dedicated to them :-)

The theme this week is Thank You :-)

For my card I followed a sketch on The Pink Elephant Challenge ,,, we have a choice of 2 ;-)

For my card I used a lovely image from The Wild Rose Studio This one is called Cat and Flowers ;-) I coloured the image with copics and added a little stickles around the edge for sparkle. The papers are from the Wild Rose Sudio Spring Papers CD

The ribbon and charm are from my stash and the sentiment is a WOJ stamp. I added some pink Papermania glimmer dots too ,, I love these :-) The flower was made using papers from the same CD which were cut using a Spellbinders flower die cut :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Happy New Year :-) x x
