A is for Anything Christmas

Happy New Year to you all! I can't believe that another Christmas season has come and gone. I hope you all had a happy holiday with family and friends. Did you manage to finish all of your Christmas cards? If you are like me and didn't start early enough for that, don't worry it is the start of a new year. If we all start now we can be better prepared for next Christmas. Over on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog we are starting the alphabet all over again and we have a nice easy card to get you started.

Before I get to my card I have a winner to announce from the Z is for Zero Time Left Blog Hop. I have used Random.Org to select a winner and come up with the following.

Sam - Whispers Cards, that make you the winner, congratulations. Please e-mail me by next Wednesday to claim your prize.


Our theme that has been chosed for this challenge is A for Anything Christmas. I have been adoring these LOTV bears for a while now but they arrived too late for me to use them this past year but you can bet that they will get lots of use before Christmas rolls around again.

I have used my Copics to colour the adorable Jenny Bear and all her shopping goodies and the embellished the image with some glitter and liquid applique for some dimension and sparkle. I have kept the card simple using only some cardstock and some scraps of DPs from MME and Scenic Route.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope that you will play along with us as I do look forward to seeing all of your lovely cards. Be sure to hop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and see all of the other gorgeous cards that the DT has created to inspire you.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:

As others have said, the image isn't showing here, which is probably why you couldn't link for my Christmas challenge blog. I've managed to create a link to your post here and added the image from the ABC Christmas blog. Thank you for joining in the first challenge on my new blog. x
