ABC Christmas Challenge - A is for...

It's time for a brand new ABC Christmas Challenge, and this time I'm hosting..again! We're about to embark on our fifth trip through the alphabet...so we're back at the start with a nice easy theme for you:

'A is for Anything Christmas'

We have a wonderful sponsor for this challenge:

http://www.bugaboostamps.com/

The prize is 7 digis from Bugaboo Stamps for one lucky winner!

The stamp I used on my card was a Christmas present from my lovely ABC Christmas Challenge DT buddy & friend Samantha....thank you...I love it! It's called Ice Dance Bunnies' by Nellie Snellen...so cute! The papers are from the 'Winter Wonderland' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little before adding faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I added a sentiment (from the 'Jolly Snowmen' set by Woodware) and a couple of die cut trees (cut using a Marianne Designs die).

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