ABC Christmas reminder

 Here is a small reminder that the current challenge at ABC Christmas is

H - ho, ho, ho

I - inky

I used an image from Lili of the Valley and a gingham ribbon on dark blue cardstock.

 I started by masking off the edges and the bunnies and used Stormy Sky distress oxide for the background. After that I could colour the image with distress inks. 

So this project fits both Inky and Ho, ho, ho 🤹

Other challenges:
Allsorts - B is for (bunnies, blue, branch)
Tailormade cards 4 u - A/G the great outdoors
Inkspirational - watercolor
Color crazy - A/G
Crafty Catz - A/G + ribbon
Jingle bells - winter fun

As you like it - floral or cute. I chose cute cause I adore all the cute Lili of the Valley stamps.

🎄ABC Christmas 🎅 - H and I

 The challenge for April at ABC Christmas is 

H - ho ho ho

I - inky

I used an image from Milyblooms (yes, I switched the words from another image in the bundle cause I wanted to use the bird house and still follow the theme Ho ho ho 😊). The image is coloured with distress inks and I added some sparkles on the roof. The sewing machine came to use to make some stitching around the edge.
