ABC Christmas ,,, ‘O’ for Old ,,,

Hi all :-) ,, it is really difficult to think about Christmas when the sun is cracking the flags !! it is HOT here in Gozo ,,, phew !!

It is time for a new theme over on the ABC Christmas Challenge. This time it is Jayne’s turn to choose the theme and she chose

‘O’ for Old ,,,, use an old stamp, ,,, easy !

Unfortunately this is Jayne’s last challenge with us as she has decided to step down from the DT and move on to pastures new. It has been fabulous working with you Jayne and I wish you all the very best xx

We are sponsored by the lovely Dulcie at Wild Rose Studio and one lucky winner will get to choose 2 gorgeous stamps ! :-)

The DT were all given images to use and I chose this very cute Christmas Friends stamp

I coloured the image with Copics, added glossy accents to their noses and star dust stickles here and there. I then inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. The papers are downloads from Pink Petticoat and I used an EK Success snowflake border punch and Martha Stewart snowflake punch too. I embossed a strip of white card using a Swiss Dots folder and added some ribbon and Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish.

Thanks for looking, the DT hae made some cracking cards for your viewing pleasure so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile

Everybody Art ,,,,,, Dots

Sweet Stamps ,,,, Winter Blues

Creative Inspirations ,,, X mas in July

Paper Sundaes ,,, Christmas in July
