ABC Christmas Challenge - A & B are for?

 Happy New Year Everyone!


It's Helen here welcoming you to our first challenge of 2023, and the beginning of our fourteenth (!!!) trip through the alphabet! 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, may I remind you to
 check the post below to see if you were a lucky winner of our last challenge!

 Whilst, as our name suggests, we are predominantly a Christmas challenge, we would like to extend a very warm welcome to cards made for other December/Winter Holidays (for example Hanukkah, Yule etc). There may still be some of our themes that are specifically 'Christmas', but many would work for other Winter Holidays and Festivals too, so as long as your project fits the theme, we are happy for you to enter our challenges.



We have noticed an increasing number of entries posted on Instagram...we're very happy to have you on board & you'll find some of our DT members there too...please use the hashtag #abcchristmaschallenge on your posts.

Okay, here we go!
We have two themes for you this month:


'A is for Anything Christmas'
&
'B is for Bear'

There's a little prize from me for the lucky winner:

A set of Christmas sentiment dies and a 6x6 Christmas themes paper pad.


And now it's time for some inspiration from our Design Team:
