Happy New Year and welcome to ABC Christmas Challenge.
We're starting our twelfth (!) trip through the alphabet,
and this years first challenge is hosted by Helen and the themes are:
A is for ADVENT!
B is for BELLS!
I have a card for each of the two themes.
First out my A for Advent card.
I have used my dear Snowy from Penny Black once again!
The background is embossed with a folder from Cuttlebug, and Frostys
hat and scarf are paper pieced with purple paper.
The colour of Advent is as you might know purple.
My B for Bells card.
Another Penny Black stamp used for the B card. This image is 'new' to me,
I have bought it used and stamped it up for the first time.
It's called 'Caroling Bunch'.
The paper is from Maja Design, the vellum with nodes is old stuff
from my drawers, and the sentiment is from LOTV.
A close up of the beautiful bouquet.
The prizes this month is given by Helen: a couple of Kaisercraft clear stamp sets
(Jingle Bells & Home for Christmas), one each for two lucky winners!
