ABC Christmas Challenge - N is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge...Wilma is our host, and the theme is:

'N is for Not a Card'

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge:

Prize - a $20 gift certificate to spend at the Simon Says Stamp Store!


Prize - a $10 gift certifiacte for the Stamp Fairy Shop!

I've made a tag...I always seem to forget about making these until the last minute, so thought I'd get at least one done ahead of time! The image is 'Barry Winter 1' from the Stamp Fairy...which I coloured using watercolour pencils...than added lots of Stickles to his hat and the snow. The spotty paper is from the 'Coundown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye - I distressed the edges a little, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I layered it over a piece of red card edes with my EK Success 'Scalloped Dimaonds' punch. The ribbons and twine are from Hobbycraft and the Ribbon Girls.

I'm also entering this tag into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies and some fabulous guest designers, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
