ABC Christmas M for Misteltoe and Blog Hop :-)

My goodness ,, we are already half way through the alphabet and as this week is Lacey's choice to set the ABC Christmas challenge she thought it would be a good idea to do a half way hop too !! Brilliant idea !! :-)

So ,, Lacey chose the theme of M for Mistleto and/or Wine with the optional extra of sewing :-)

Lacey is also sponsoring this hop with a fabulous prize of a $25 spree to her online store Stamp and Create :-)

If you're on the hop ,, you should have arrived here from the lovely Lacey's Blog :-)If not then you may need to go back to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and start from there :-)

For my card I used a Penny Black Dove stamp and a Whispers sprig of Mistletoe. The papers are Magnolia and MME aznd the sentiment is Hero Arts :-)

From here you need to go to visit the Big Boss herself ,, the lovely SAMANTHA and see what gorgeous card ,,, and maybe fabby candy she has waiting for you :-)

I MAY have some candy !! To be eligible for any candy you need to make a card for the challenge and answer my question

What is your FAVE Christmas stamp :-)

I am entering this into the following challenges :-

Bah Humbug,,,, Anything Goes

Winter Wonderland
,,,,Traditional Christmas Flower ,,,,, mistletoe, not exactly a flower but is accepted :-)

A Beautiful elegant card, Cant wait to start mine this afternoon. My favourite christmas stamp is a penny black sentiment stamp "Friends are like snowflakes, each one unique". I use it almost every year and have found it to be really versatile as a sentiment for a card or i've recently made it a feature with a frame around it and snowflake ebellishments.

Hi Lols, how lovely to see you joining us at Winter Wonderland. It makes a change for me to leave you a comment on a challenge entry. I love the way you have framed your image and sentiment and the colour combo is so pretty. The added Whispers mistletoe and the papers definitely hit our theme this week. Must head over for that blog hop it looks delish
