ABC Christmas Challenge - H is for...

We have a new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Chris is the host, and the theme is:

'H is for Home'
Make a card featuring a home image or sentiment...or maybe a Christmas decoration for your home.

We are sponsored for this challenge by our very own Lacey:
 With an awesome prize!
$20 gift certificate to spend at Stamp & Create!

I made a set of Christmassy fridge magnets...using some clear plastic magnetic photo frames from Ikea, and some Penny Black stamps:


I coloured the images using watercolour pencils...then doodled a simple border using a black gel pen, and added some Glamour Dust to the 'snowy' ground for a touch of sparkle.


I'm also entering these fridge magnets into the following challenges:


For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.

Helen, you have chosen the cutest stamps for these magnets. This is just gorgeous. No one can make stamps like Penny Black and this is my favorite snowman stamp ever! Each one has that fabulous scribbling around the edge, something I'm not good at, but you are superb. I love the touches of glitter and the colors of each magnet. Beautiful! Thanks for joining us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' this month and hope to see more of your art work in future challenges, too! Hugs, Gail
