ABC Christmas Challenge - B is for...

Wow - it was lovely to see so many of you joining in with our first ABC Christmas Challenge! Just think how organised you'll be next Christmas if you join in every challenge! :0)
This week it's my turn to set the challenge, and I've chosen:

'B is for Bells'

With an extra little challenge to include 'Glitter' we all love a bit of sparkle, so that should be easy-peasy! :0)

For my card I've used a cute Penny Black hedgie stamp from the 'Christmas Critters' set, and watercoloured it to match these DCWV papers ( from the 'Christmas' stack). The sentiment stamp is from a little set by Studio G, and the dinky little bells (hanging from the snowflake) are from Hobbycraft. I added glitter glue to the snowflake (cut using the Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die), and also to the snow and fur trim on the hedgie's hats...although I couldn't get it to show up too well in the photos.

Do make sure you check out the fab creations by the rest of the DT over on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog...including the lovely Lols, who has agreed to join us permanently...yay! And if the thought of being nicely prepared for next Christmas isn't enough incentive for you to join in the ABC Christmas fun...we have a fabulous prize up for grabs...a $15 shopping spree at:

Woo-hoo! So what are you waiting for???
