Christmas bleatings

The stamp I've used on this card was bought with a voucher I recently won on a blog challenge.  It was perfect for this card because it meant very little colouring, which also meant less chance for me to fluff it up.

ABC Christmas Challenge - S & T

I've had to hold some exciting news in for nearly a month!  I've been asked to join the ABC Christmas Challenge design team!  I've been given my very own badge too!


When I had my previous blog I did a few guest stints for this fab challenge, as well as another challenge blog, sadly closed now (not my fault!), but this is my first time being on a DT.  So chuffed!  Thanks again for asking me, Samantha.

Soooo, it's time for a new challenge.  Lisa is the host and the themes this month are -  

'S for Sketch' 
and  
'T for Trio' 

You can choose to do either theme, both of them, or even combine them.  It's up to you.

We have two sponsors for this challenge and they are -

 The prize is 4 digi stamps of the winner's choice

and

Crafty Ribbons

The prize is a £10 voucher

There's also a prize from Lisa for one lucky person

I've chosen the 'T for Trio' theme.  I've used a trio of papers and a trio of stamps (two separate sentiments and one image).  There's also two trios of pearls and the cow has a trio of dangly bits on her bagpipes ;)

Have a quacking Christmas

Another Christmas card to share today.  The poor wee ducky looks a bit confused as to what he's meant to be doing.  Might have something to do with it only being September.
