abc christmas challenge on Docrafts forum


I have been really busy this week with the ABC Christmas Challenge, organised and hosted by my friend Ginny (AsIDoRodos) over on the Docrafts forum.  This fab challenge is a card every day, one for each letter, eg day 1 = a etc etc.

Well we are up to F and I thought I would post pics of my cards to show you.

I have also been on a distressing afternoon course at my local Garden Centre - Monkton Elm, it was fab and Gail our marvelous demonstrator was brilliant.  So thanks Gail I learnt a lot and as you can see I have put some of the techniques you taught to good use in my cards.  So here they are:

A= Arctic love

 b = bling

 c = cakes

d = decorating the tree

 d = doormouse

e = evergreen

e = eve, christmas eve wishes 
 f = father christmas

I have not entered these cards into any challenges, but I hope you like them.

Lilac Angel

Hi,  Don't forget today is the start of another great challenge fortnight over on the Cutie Pie Challenge.  Our challenge this fortnight is a recipe.

Lilac/Silver Tones
Fairy Image
3 Buttons/Flowers

For my GTD card I used a Meljens image.  She's so cute.  I have added some bling as well, she has a great sparkly necklace and a gorgeous pearl centre to her flower.  My card is from Hunky Dory as is the sentiment.  The ribbons and bows were from my stash, as was the backing paper.  The border is a Woodware punch.  I have added the glitter using Ranger Stickles Glitter glue and have chalked the background using dovecraft chalks.  Hope you like her.  She is of course coloured with promarkers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
