A is for Anything Christmas (Optional Antlers)

Good morning & Happy New Year everyone!

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

We're about to embark on our sixth (!!!) trip through the alphabet...and we hope that you will join us this year in our bid to be prepared for next Christmas! We have lots of fun challenge themes and amazing prizes from our wonderful sponsors along the way!

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

We've gone right back to the start of the alphabet...and are easing you in gently with a super easy theme...although there is an optional extra if you fancy a tougher challenge:

'A is for Anything Christmas'

(Optional extra to include antlers)

We have a wonderful sponsor this time:

Zlatoena's Design
A little bit about ZlatoenaMy mom and I used to make handmade cards and that's how everything started. I'm last year graphic design student and I have always had to passion to draw and doodle and one day someone came with the idea for digi stamps and .. 3 years since then.. I am creating digital stamps and.. The Cats Pajamas Rubber stamps are producing my designs into real stamps.. and I am as happy as can be.

Prize - 2 Digi Images of the winner's choice!

Now for some inspiration from our lovely DT:

Bettina - on a break 


Angela - coming soon

So now it's over to you...
perhaps you received some Christmas crafting goodies in your stocking that you're itching to use...or snapped up some bargains in the post-Christmas sales! Maybe you've resolved to be more organised with your cards this year so that you don't have a last-minute panic again...or maybe you just enjoy making Christmas cards as much as we do!

This challenge will close at 6pm (GMT) on Tuesday 20th January 2015.
