ABC Christmas Challenge - A & B

I'm back, have you missed me?  Or even noticed that I'd gone? ;)  I had some time away from blogland because my mum had a bit of a health scare.  Thankfully everything turned out okay.

Anyhoo, it's the first Wednesday of the month (and of 2018, how did that happen?) which means a new challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge and this time Helen is the host.  This month the themes are -   

'A for Antlers' 
 and  
'B for Birds' 

We have two sponsors this month, and they are -
the prize is an £20 gift voucher code

and
