ABC Christmas Challenge- P, Q & R

It's challenge time again, over at the ABC Christmas Challenge, and it's my turn to host for the very first time, eek!  We have three themes this month, and they are -

'P for Plain' 
'Q for Quotes'
  and 
'R for Robins or Rabbits' 

Our sponsor this month is -

and the prize is a $25 gift certificate

There's also a prize from me 
   
I've combined 'P for Plain' and 'Q for Quotes' in this card.  The quote is from one of my favourite Christmas films, 'Elf'.  
Simon Says Stamp Monday - Wild Things
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - Anything Christmas
Cute Card Thursday - Too Cute

Image stamp - Penny Black 'Carolling Hedgehogs'
Sentiment/quote - Printed

My 'R for Robins' card
Dream Valley - Christmas in July
Fussy And Fancy Friday - Christmas in July
Creative Inspirations - Holidays

Image stamp - Stampendous 'Snow Bird'
Papers - Studio Light 'Winter Feelings'
Extras - I used a Cuttlebug snowflake die to make the larger snowflake, a Penny Black Creative Die 'Frosty's Snow' to make the smaller one, then popped a pearl in the centre of it, as well as in a couple of the corners.  I then added Flower Soft for the snow.
 
I also decided to make an 'R for Rabbits' card as well
House-Mouse & Friends - Anything goes/Christmas in July
Crafty Catz - Anything goes/use something yellow
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper - Use patterned paper
Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - Hot/warm colours on a Christmas project

Image - From 'The House-Mouse Triple CD Collection'
Sentiment - As above
Papers - Make & Create 'Magic Moments'
Extras - I popped some pearls in a couple of the corners

Aaaaaand, as if that wasn't enough, I decorated a wee box to match my rabbit card.  I'll have to have a lie down in a dark room to recover from all that effort!

I bet you are still lying down after all that Sharon, but the effort was so worth it! Each card is gorgeous and the little matching gift box is adorable. Just think though that all the effort now will mean an easier time come December!
