ABC Christmas Challenge - C & D

Time for another challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge and Wilma is the host this month.  The themes are -

'C for Clean' 
  and 
'D for Distress' 

You can choose to do one or both themes, or even combine them.  It's up to you.

Our sponsor this month is -

and the prize is a £25 gift certificate


My 'C for Clean' card
Incy Wincy Designs - Clean and simple
Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends - Anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - Anything Christmas
Sweet Stampin' - Anything but a birthday 
Crimbo Crackers - Anything goes

Image stamp - Lili Of The Valley 'Party Pup'

Sentiment stamp - Elzybells


My 'D for Distress' card 
As You Like It - Favourite way to add stitching (with a pen - either a black fineliner or white gel pen - as it's so much easier, and quicker, than using a sewing machine)
Christmas At Sweet Stampin' - Anything Christmas goes
The Holly And Ivy Christmas - Anything Christmas goes
Crafty Calendar - Two or more layers

Image stamp - Lili Of The Valley 'Ho Ho Ho!'

Papers - Basic Grey 'Marjolaine'
Extras - The sentiment was cut using a Poppy Crafts 'Ho Ho Ho' word die and the edges were inked with Tim Holtz 'Weathered Wood' distress ink
