ABC Christmas J for Jingle Bells Challenge

Thanks for all your lovely entries for the ABC Christmas Challenge 'ICE' Challenge :-) The last 2 weeks have just flown by !

The theme for the next fortnight was chosen by Annie and she chose

J FOR JINGLE BELLS with the added option of Punches

We are sponsored this week by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp, so a lovely voucher to spend in the fab Superstore !! :-)

I don't have any stamps from Simon Says Stamp with jingle bells on it !!,,will have to recitify this anomaly soon !! so I used one of my new House Mouse Christmas stamps and 'cheated' by adding a jingle bell to the bow :-) I coloured the image with copics and added ice stickles for sparkle and distress rock candy stickles on the beads and baubles as this dries 3D and adds dimension. :-)

The ribbon bow is pure silk and is so touchy feely gorgeous :-) , the papers are My Minds Eye and the sentiment is a making Memories rub on. the gorgeous flower is from a Tim Holtz Poinsettia limited edition pack i used a Martha Stewart Holly Leaf punch too :-)

I am entering this into the following challenges :-

House Mouse Monday ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Flower Power
Christmas Stampin,,,,,,,,,, Easel card
Bah Humbug ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Snowflakes,, now these may not be obvious ,, but I have gone for a 'flurry' by dotting ice stickes everywhere and there is lots of snow on the ground :-)

The DT have made some fabulous cards for you to see so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them :-)
