ABC Christmas ‘R’ for ,,,,,,, Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) I hope all is well with everyone and looking forward to Christmas ,,,he he he :-)

I have a nice box of X mas cards this year ,,,, no last min rush out to the Gozo SPCA to buy charity cards like last year !!! :-) I will of course give them a nice donation tho !! :-) Please pop over to the site to have a look and maybe make a donation for the new premises they are about to start building ,,, every little helps xx Also if you buy from Amazon, Play. com etc if you go through the link on their website they earn a small amount on every purchase :-)

This week it is Carissa’s turn to choose the theme on the ABC Christmas Challenge and she chose ,,,

R’ for Recycling and Ribbons or Rhinestones

you must have something recycled on your Christmas creation and either ribbon’s, rhinestones ,,, or if you’re feeling extravagant ,,, BOTH !! :-)

We are sponsored by Digital Delights so a fab choice of 3 digi stamps on offer :-)

For my card I used this very cute Milton In Hat image from the Wild Rose Studio, Dulcie has just released an adorable new range of products , click here to see them !

I followed the fab sketch on the Fussy and Fancy Challenge :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. The papers are from a new Basic Grey Nordic Holiday pack and I stamped a WRS sentiment directly onto the paper. I added some ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and a Woodware one too. The rhinestones are recycled from a shop bought card I received last year :-)

The DT have made some gorgeous creations so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile

Challenges :

Fussy and Fancy ,,,, Sketch

Crafts 4 Eternity ,,,, Christmas

Ohhh, Lols, Milton looks so cute! I love the new Pickles WRS! Looks like I need to get my real glitter out to get the same look as you do for his hat and ground snow! Stickles are ok, but whatever you did looks fabulous!
