ABC Christmas Challenge - I is for...

It's Jayne's turn to host the ABC Christmas Challenge this week...and the theme is:

'I is for Ice'

And her 'optional extra' is 'Snowflakes'

We are sponsored this week by Stitchy Bear Stamps...who are very generously offering the winner their choice of 3 items from their store.

The DT are all working with images provided by Stitchy Bear stamps too this week...the one I chose to use is called 'Welcome'...isn't he cute!? I decided to make an acetate I thought it would look kind of 'icy'. I simply embossed the front panel using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder, and then adhered my watercoloured snowman to the front, placing a Nestie shape on the inside behind him on which to write the greeting.

Make sure you stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge for more inspiration from my fab DT buddies.
