A & B are for?

Good morning & Happy New Year everyone!

It's Helen here...welcome back to the ABC Christmas Challenge!

We're about to embark on our ninth (!!!) trip through the alphabet...and we hope that you will join us this year in our bid to be prepared for next Christmas! Perhaps you were lucky enough to receive some new Christmas craft bits in your stocking...or snapped up some bargains in the post-Christmas sales...perhaps one of your New Year's resolutions is to have your Christmas cards ready in plenty of time this year...or maybe you just haven't tidied away your Christmas stash away after making last year's cards yet! Whatever the reason, we'd love to have you play along with us all year - we have two (or sometimes three) fun themes each month, with plenty of projects from our design team to help inspire you!

Before I get on to this month's themes...
don't forget to check the post below to see if you were a lucky winner of our last challenge!

We have, of course, gone right back to the start of the alphabet...and are easing you in gently with two super easy themes:



'A is for Antlers'


AND


'B is for Birds'

(Just don't forget the Christmas theme!)


 Our sponsors for this challenge are:

One lucky winner will receive a £20 gift voucher
