ABC Christmas Challenge - June 2017...L & M are for?

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today. Dorte is the host this month, and there are two themes to choose from, or combine:

'L is for Love'


'M is for More than One'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Wild Orchid Crafts:
Prize - £10 Gift Certificate!

There is also a mystery prize from Dorte for one lucky entrant!

For the 'L is for Love' theme, I picked a cute House Mouse image called 'Mistletoe Moment', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Christmas Cheer' pad by Lily Bee Designs, and 'Happy Day' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from a set by Lili of the Valley, and the adhesive pearls are from Hobbycraft.

For the 'M is for More than One' theme, I picked a Penny Black stamp called 'Carolers'...featuring 'more than one' caroling chickens! Again, I used watercolour pencils to colour the image...this time adding a sentiment from the 'Caroling Chicks' set by Stamping Bella. I also used 'more than one' paper (all from the 'Christmas Cheer' pad by Lily Bee Design), once again adding a little distressing and some faux stitching.

I'm also entering these cards into the following challenges:
