N is for NO Embellishments!

Good morning and welcome to another ABC Christmas Challenge...it's Helen here, and before I get to this fortnight's theme, I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who joined in with our 'Mice or Men' challenge...don't forget to scroll down and check to see if you are one of the lucky winners!

I also have some sad news...our lovely Emma is leaving us due to work commitments. We wish you all the best Emma - it's been lovely having you on our happy little team!

Ok, so on to our new challenge...the theme is:

'N is for NO Embellishments'

You can go CAS if you like...but just make sure you keep well away from all of the 'frilly' stuff...that means:

No gems or pearls
No ribbon or lace
No brads or flowers
No charms or twine
No beads or dew drops
No pins or card candi
No buttons or bells!
Or anything else you can think of!

But you CAN use glitter, Stickles, flocking etc :0)

But don't panic...I have some gorgeous samples to show you in a moment!

We have a wonderful sponsor for this challenge:
