ABC Christmas Challenge - May 2017...J & K are for?

We have a fun new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Samantha is the host, and this month we have two themes for you to choose from....or combine!

'J is for Jingle Bells'

and 

'K is for Keep it Simple'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digi Stamp Boutique:
Prize - £10 Gift Voucher!

There's also a bonus prize from our lovely Samantha...but you'll have to pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to find out what it is.

I made a project for each of the two themes...for the 'J is for Jingle Bells' I hunted out a load of little silver bells, and threaded them on to some jewellery wire to make a little Christmas tree ornament...adding some silver ribbon to hang it with. It looks massive in the photo below, but it's actually about 3 inches across.


For my 'K is for Keep It Simple' project, I made a one layer card using a stamp from the 'Joy to the World' stamp set by Penny Black. I coloured the image suing watercolour pencils, added a sentiment (from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous), and doodled a simple border.


Challenges for these items:

Great projects Helen! I really like your jingly tree decoration - such a creative idea, and the CAS design of your card is great. I love the doodled frame - it adds to the card's whimsical feel.
