ABC Christmas ,,, ‘R’ for Recycle :-)

Hi all :-) You do know it’s only 110 days to Christmas don’t you !! so if you haven’t made a start on the hundreds of cards you need then you had better get a wiggle on !! :-)

This time on the ABC Christmas Challenge it is the lovely Miria’s turn to choose the theme ,,,

‘R’ for RECYCLE ,,,

so dig out some old buttons, packaging, etc and pop it on a Christmas card ! :-)

We have 2 fabulous sponsors this time, the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp will be giving a fabulous $15 voucher



In 2 Stamps will be giving a 10 euro voucher to the store !! :-)


I cheated a bit this week and used an Anabelle’s Christmas Printed Panel from the Wild Rose Studio,, these are FAB ,,, makes it so quick and easy to make a card, all the colouring is done for you ! :-)

I will list all the products at the bottom of this post the only thing for me to say is that I recycled some ribbon that I had used to decorate a hat that I wore for the Royal Wedding :-) I wasn’t invited to the real thing ,,, obviously ,, but we did have a fab party in a local bar :-)

You scared me saying only 110 days to Christmas!
Todays card is super lovely, beautiful colours and a pretty image. Sometimes it's great with a pre-coloured image.

That focal image really is adorable Lorraine and with that lush red bow makes for a beautiful card.

I'm afraid though, that it's not eligible for Penny Black and More challenge as our rules require the main image to be stamped.

Hope you find time to join in with another piece of your lovely work as their are some great prizes again.
