ABC Christmas Challenge - March 2017...E, F & G are for?

We have a fun new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today, and this month we have not one...not two...but three themes for you to choose from....or combine!

'E is for Edge'

'F is for Family'


'G is for Girls'

Are sponsor for this challenge is Wild Orchid Crafts
Prize - a £10 gift certificate!

And...that's not all...there's also a little prize from me too:
A set of Sizzix Christmas dies!

A made a card for each of the three themes. For the 'E is for Edge' theme, I stamped a selection of snowflakes (from sets by Papermania, Lakeland and Prima) using Versamark Ink off the edge of a kraft card blank, then heat embossed them in 'Sparkling Snow' WOW embossing powder. The sentiment is from a set by Lili of the Valley.

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

My second card is for 'F is for Family' and features an adorable Prairie Fairy image called 'Snow Family', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The paper is from the 'Happy Day' pad by My Mind's Eye...I added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen, and combined a couple of Lili of the Valley sentiments.

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

My third card is for 'G for Girls' and features an older Lili of the Valley stamp that came as part of a set called 'Skating Along' and papers from the 'Silent Night' pad by First Edition. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a silver gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the same Lili of the Valley set.

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

What a fabulous collection of cards Helen! They are all gorgeous but if I had to pick just one, it would be the last one. Your mix of papers, the stitching, the distressing and the lovely image makes this a stunner!

Thanks for the warm welcome to the team:-)
