ABC Christmas Challenge - W & X are for?

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Sharon is the host and the themes are:

'W is for Wishes'
&
'X is for Xmas'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fred She Said:
Prize - $10 Gift Certificate!

There's also a little prize from Sharon:
An adorable LOTV rubber stamp!

I made a card for each of the two themes...but kept used the same clean and simple design on both. I used Penny Black images, coloured using watercolour pencils, carefully cut out and mounted on my card blanks using 3D foam pads. On my 'W is for Wishes' card, the image is called 'Monkey See, Monkey Do' and the sentiment is from a set by Pollycraft for C. C. Designs.


On my 'X is for Xmas' card, the image is called 'Bedecked Antlers', and the sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous...I altered it slightly by masking off the 'Christ' part of the word 'Christmas', and drawing in an 'X' to replace it.


I'm also entering these cards into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, and for all the details of our Design Team Call, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.

These look so cute! i love your coloring and it's a great idea to mount a die cute shape on white base -the white lines around the image bring a lot of extra interest and dimension. Perfect for our challenge! Thank you for joining us at Less Is More!
