ABC Christmas Challenge - L & M are for?

We have another fun ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...I'm the host, and the themes are:

'L is for Love'
'M is for Movies'

The prize for the lucky winner of this challenge is a 6x6 paper pad, clear stamp set & mini snowflake dies:

For my 'L is for Love' card, I picked a sweet Penny Black image called 'Wishes for Kisses'. I stamped it on to watercolour paper, coloured it using watercolour pencils, then cut it out using one of my circle Nesties. The papers are a mixture of Crate Paper 'Bundled Up' (the pink & green ones), and 'Paper Hearts' (the grey one)...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The hearts were die cut using my old Cuttlebug 'Concentric Hearts' die.

I used another Penny Black image, 'Snowy', on my 'M is for Movies' card to represent the animated film 'The Snowman'. I gave Snowy a green hat and scarf, adding some checks to the scarf just like the snowman in the film...along with an orange 'satsuma' for his nose! I simply matted my watercoloured image on to some matching green card...distressing the edges and adding some faux stitching.

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

Great pair of cards! Your first one is perfect for the love prompt, and wow, he really does look like "The Snowman" the way you've coloured him!
