ABC Christmas Challenge - J is for...

It's Annie's turn to host the ABC Christmas Challenge this fortnight, where the theme is:

'J is for Jingle Bells'

And the optional extra that Annie has chosen for this challenge is to include something 'punched' on your projects.


We are sponsored by the fab Simon Says Stamp Store for this challenge...who have very generously donated a $15 shopping spree for the lucky winner!

I took inspiration from the words of the song 'Jingle Bells' for my card...but I couldn't find any images of anyone riding on a 'one horse open sleigh' amongst my I've used this adorable sledging digi stamp called 'Roocat Sliding' by Prairie Fairy that I won a few weeks ago. The glittered papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' stack by My Mind's Eye, the sentiment stamp is by Studio G, and the little jingle bells (tied on to the ribbon) are from Hobbycraft. I used my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die to cut the big snowflake...which I then coated with lots of Glamour Dust...and I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamond' punch to make the scalloped border underneath the horizontal panel across the centre.

I followed the sketch from the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge to make my card...although I flipped it so that Roocat was facing into the card.

Don't forget to check out the fab 'Jingly' cards by the rest of the ABC Christmas Challenge DT...and see if you made it into the Top 3...or were the lucky prize winner of our last challenge.
