What are H and I for?

Good morning!
It's Carissa here and I hope you are all having a wonderful week.

 Over on the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog we
have two wonderful new themes to choose from...or combine...this month:

'H is for Home'
'I is for Informal'
(But don't forget the Christmas theme!)

As you can see below, I went for the Informal theme. I opted to use this sweet image from LOTV, coloured it up and simply matted it before placing it atop a store purchased card blank with a bold pattern.  How easy is that?
 We have some generous sponsors for this challenge

One lucky entrant will win this lovely Snowman Family Stamp Set and a Birds and Berries 6x6 Paper Pack

Thanks so much Dulcie and Matthew, owners of the Wild Rose Studio

Now its your turn. I hope you'll join us!

E is for Edge - F is for Family - G is for Girls

Good Evening, I hope that you are all having a wonderful week.
It is the start of a new month over on the ABC Christmas Challenge.  
We have three fantastic themes to choose from...or combine...

'E is for Edge'

'F is for Family'


'G is for Girls'

(Just don't forget the Christmas theme!)

For my card, I have opted to play with some of my larger dies to create a card with a fancy scalloped edge. I coloured up James Bear again to match some remnants of an old Basic Grey Christmas collection and matted the image with a diecut that had another fancy edging.

Anything Goes with a Bear!

Good Evening!
 I am running a little late today due to technical difficulties. Apparently one needs to remember to recharge their camera battery every now and again, who'd have thought it?
Over on the ABC Christmas Challenge we are kicking off the start of the new year with a new challenge for you.
For the month of January our themes will be
A for Anything Goes
B for Things that begin with B
I have a card featuring the adorable James 'B'ear from LOTV. He has been coloured with Copics and accented with a generous dose of Twinkle Dust for some sparkle. The image has been matted  and then added to a card base that I created from some scraps of paper remaining from some previous projects.
We hope that you will join us for our first challenge of 2017.
Our sponsors for this challenge are:
