Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend and managed to do something you enjoy. I omitted to say thank you to Brenda last time I posted for becoming my latest follower, so thank you and I hope you enjoy seeing my makes.

It's time for our first challenge of the year over at Christmas with the Cuties and for this month we would like to see anything beginning with the letter B.

I've failed a bit in that I've only achieved two B's, Birds on a Branch (although I could say bobbles I suppose), but it was a stamp that I hadn't inked up before and wanted to use it.  It's a Wild Rose Studio stamp coloured with copics and I've added a few little glittery details in the two top corners with some die cut snowflakes and branches.  The papers are from LOTV.  I wasn't too keen on the bottom paper being plain so I've embossed a few clear snowflakes to add a bit of interest.  The sentiment, I think,  is from Digistamp Boutique.

Kraft card was used for the mats and these are the snippets I've used for this card.  I often cut the middles out of my kraft layers as the card gets a bit bulky otherwise, so I end up with quite a few snippets.

Our sponsor this month is:

with a prize for the lucky winner

I hope you can join us this month to get you started with those Christmas cards.  

I would like to enter these challenges:

February Rudolph Days - Anything Christmas
Pixies Snippets Playground - snippets used are the kraft pieces, sentiment, snowflakes and white branch.
Aud Sentiments - Bingo and a Sentiment (embossing, Stamp, Faux Stitching)
Papercraft Challenges - All the Critters
Stamping Sensations - All things Bright and Beautiful

Thank you for visiting and all your lovely comments. I will be back later in the week.
