ABC Christmas ,,, 'N' for NOEL Challenge ( open any Christmas creation will do !! ) :-)

Thanks for all your lovely entries to our Half Way Challenge and hop :-) It isn't easy to make Christmas cards in June ,,, but I have quite a nice collection of Christmas cards already ,,,, no last min panicking this year !! :-)

We will be announcing all the winners of the Mystery candy on the ABC Christmas Challenge later today, so don't forget to pop over there to see if you're one of the lucky ones :-)

The theme for the next fortnight on the ABC Christmas Challenge was chosen by Helen :-) She decided on the theme

'N' for Noel with the optional extra of Embossing :-)

copied from Wikipedia :-
Noel (or noël, sometimes written as nowell in English) is an alternate word for Christmas. The word comes from the French word Noël meaning "Christmas"

So ,, any Christmas creation will do !! :-)

We are sponsored this week by the lovely Dulcie, the Designer/owner of the Wild Rose Studio Dulcie will be giving one lucky entrand the choice of 2 stamps from her Christmas Collection ,,, fab !! :-)

For my card I used the lovely Angel of Peace image and papers that are on the Christmas Collection CD :-)

I coloured the image with copics and added loads of glitter :-) Iused a Nellie Snellen die cut frame and a star design embossing folder. The coordinating card is SU and coredinations :-)

Thanks for looking :-) the DT and Cathy our GD have made some gorgeous cards for you to see this week ,, so please pop by the challenge blog to see them,,, and please join in !! :-)
