ABC Christmas Challenge - E, F & G

It's the first Wednesday of the month, so that means it's time for a new challenge over at the ABC Christmas ChallengeCarol's our host and we have three themes this month, which are -

'E for Embellishments' 
'F for Fabric'
  and 
'G for Glitz' 

Carol's offering prizes for two lucky winners


I've combined all three themes on this card.  The gems are the embellishments, the lace is the fabric and I've added glitter to the snow for the glitz part, as well as there being glittery snowflakes on the paper.  The snow isn't obvious in this photo so I've added another photo, which hopefully shows it up a bit better

A card, hurrah!

This card has taken me over a month to complete.  I attached the papers to the card base, stamped the image and that's as far as I got for ages.  I'm starting to wonder if my mojo was packed away with the Christmas tree.

ABC Christmas Challenge - C & D

It's the first Wednesday of the month, so that means a new ABC Christmas ChallengeWilma's our host, and the themes are -

'C for Candy'
  and 
'D for Decorations' 

Wilma's offering two prizes for two lucky winners


I've combined both challenges with my card.  I found quite a few candy images on my House-Mouse CD and finally went with this cutie.  I have a confession to make.  I love House-Mouse images and I'm mainly a stamper, but I really don't enjoy colouring House-Mouse stamps so this CD is just perfect for me.  I just thought I'd better point that out in case someone believed I'd done an amazing job at colouring this in ;)
