ABC Christmas Challenge - K is for...

We've reached the letter 'K' at the ABC Christmas Challenge...can you believe we're already nearly halfway through the alphabet??? It's my lovely furry friend Squirrel's turn to host the challenge...and the theme is:

'K is for Kisses'

...and her 'optional extra' is to create a shaped card...ie. something other than a square or rectangle.

We are sponsored for this challenge by our very own Lacey...and her store...Stamp & Create.

Where do I buy Wags \


I decided to make a little round card using the biggest of my large scalloped circle Nesties (being careful to place the 'hinge' of my folded card outside of the die...so that the front and back would still be held together!). The adorable image is 'Mistletoe & Mice' by Gillian Roberts for Stampavie, which I watercoloured, then simply layered up with some more Nestie shapes. I then added a bow which I tied through holes punched through the front of the card.



I'm going to enter this card into Totally Gorjuss' 'Round & Round' challenge.

The rest of the design team have created some fabulous 'shaped' cards this week...so make sure you pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to check them out. There's also some candy on offer...as an extra incentive to get ahead with this year's Christmas cards...and we have something really exciting in the pipeline too...I'd love to share it with you...but it's a secret! Sssshhhh!!!!
