ABC Christmas ,,, L for LOVE challenge :-)

Hi all ,,, the last 2 weeks have flown by and we are already up to ‘L’ in the alphabet !! I have a box of Christmas cards coming along nicely now ,,, no last min panic for me,,, or you if you have been joining us !!

We have 3 new teamies joining us on the DT ,, welcome aboard Heidi, Carol and Miria ! Woo Hoo :-)

This week it is my turn to choose the theme ,,,,

L FOR LOVE ,, and use the colours RED/GREEN/SILVER

We have 2 fabulous sponsors for this challenge ,,,

Heidi at Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky entrant a $15 Voucher to her store,


Gerda from Stamp Fairy will be offering 3 digi images of the winners choice !!

For my card I used this very cute Penny Black stamp ,, this one is called Wise Wishes. I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. I added Star Dust stickles for sparkle and Polar White flower soft on his hat. The papers are Papermania, I distressed them all using a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and added Silver Stickles on the edges. I used some ribbon from my stash , a star charm and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops, the sentiment is also from Papermania and was stamped directly onto the ribbon using Stazon.

Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration so please go to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see them Smile
