ABC Christmas Challenge - O is for...

It's time for another ABC Christmas Challenge...and this time Jayne is our host (this is actually Jayne's last challenge with us, as she's decided to leave our little team, but we hope she'll still visit us now and then), and the theme is:

'O is for Old'
Use a stamp or digi that is at least a year old...you don't need to have owned it for a year...but it must be an old design...I'm sure we all have neglected (or even worse...uninked!) stamps in our stash.

We are sponsored for this challenge by Wild Rose Studio


One lucky winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Wild Rose Studio store!

Some of the DT are working with Wild Rose Studio stamps (from last year's Christmas collection)...I picked 'Sam with Present' - I bet he can't guess what's in that package! lol I coloured him with watercolour pencils to match the 'Countdown to Christmas' papers (by My Mind's Eye)...went a bit crazy with all the different patterns - think it must be a reaction to our last 'No Nonsense' challenge! The snowflake was cut using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die, and the glittery brad is by American Crafts.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
