ABC Christmas Challenge - A is for...

We're starting another trip through the alphabet today on the ABC Christmas Challenge...Lacey is our host, and the theme is:

'A is for Anything Goes!'
Nice and easy...anything Christmas will do!

We have three fabulous sponsors to try to tempt you to get cracking with this year's Christmas cards:

Simon Says Stamp with a fab $15 voucher excluding postage.

$10 Gift Certificate

Mini Christmas Ribbon Kit.

I've used an image from the Stamp Fairy on my card, called 'Barry Countdown to Christmas' - isn't he cute?! I coloured him using watercolour pecnils, then added sprakle to his stars using a Sakura Stardust pen. The papers are from the 'Christmas Fancy' pad by Dovecraft - I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching. The snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs & Cuttlebug dies, and the brads are BasicGrey.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, and some of the Ribbon Girl & Stamp Fairy DT, please visit the ABC Christmas Challenge.
