'U for Unlimited' (Anything Christmas)  
'V for Vibrant'.

Our sponsor this month is -

The prize is a $15 gift card

There's also a prize from Carol

My 'U for Unlimited' card.  I bought the stamp with a voucher I recently won on another blog challenge, and of course had to get the die to go with it.  The three wee snowmen would have come in handy for the 'T for Trio' theme of our last challenge but I got them too late.

Image stamp - Penny Black 'Snow Family'
Papers - Penny Black 'Festive & Frosty'
Extras - The stamp was cut out with a Penny Black Creative Die 'Snow Family Cut Out' and I added white gems in the corners

My 'V for Vibrant' card.  I looked through my (ever growing) stash of papers and couldn't find any that I would really class as vibrant, so I had to get messy with distress inks.  I used the five colours of the drawers on my craft trolley for inspiration.

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - Anything Christmas
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
The Merry Christmas Challenge - Anything goes + Christmas

Image stamp - Penny Black 'Deer In Skates!'
Extras - White card coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks (Mowed Lawn, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves, Festive Berries and Peacock Feathers) then embossed with two Cuttlebug folders.  The snowflakes were cut with a Penny Black Creative Die 'Frosty's Snow' and I added Glamour Dust to make them shimmer, then popped gems in the centres and added a pearl for Rudolph's nose.
