ABC Christmas Challenge N for ,, No Nonsense

Hi all :-) It’s hard to think about Christmas when we are sweltering in the heat but by the time Santa comes I will have a lovely box full of cards ready !! No Last minute rush for me !! So why don’t you get started if you haven’t already and join us in the ABC Christmas challenge, and the other fab Christmas themed challenges too :-)

the theme for the next fortnight is ,,,

N for No Nonsense,,, simple design and NO designer papers !!

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 spree for one lucky entrant

AND the fabuulous Karen from Karen’s Doodles will be giving a choice of 3 digi images !! :-)

For my card I used my fab Hero Arts Down the Chimney stamp. I coloured it with Copic s and glittered the edges with Star Dust Stickles, I also added Polar White Flower Soft to the chimney and his boot trims. I used some red SU card and a piece of plain white card which I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, added a little ribbon and a Hero Arts sentiment and job done ,,, This is THE quickest card I think I ever made and plan on making several more like it before the guy in the red suit comes !! :-)

Thanks for looking, Nancy, a Karen’s Doodles designer and the DT have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile
