ABC Christmas - C and D

 Hi all, it's my turn to present the February challenge, running from today until Saturday the 9th of March. The theme is:

'C is for Cats'

&

'D is for Dogs'

And a lucky winner will get a $10 gift card to one of my favourite digistamp shops: 



My card today is a Lili of the Valley-stamp, coloured with distress inks and cut with a "torn paper" die.


I know it's Valentine's Day today but I'm sticking to Christmas creations, maybe I'll pop by later with something hearty - who knows 💕

ABC Christmas - A and B

 I'm a day late with my first post of the year for ABC Christmas, not exactly starting on top, but I'll blame the fact that it was my birthday yesterday so I had lots on my plate.

So, we have A for Anything Christmas and B for Berries.

I used a Stamping bella image and wintery watercolours for Anything Christmas.


And a mistletoe wreath with lots of sparkling berries.

Helen, our host, is offering this great prize for a lucky winner. 



Other challenges:
Card A
Krafty Chicks - Christmas
Crafty Gals - Winter fun
Welovestamping - something new (the image and the watercolour palette are new)
Allsorts - moodboard (inspired by the squirrel and the bird)
sweet stampin - What's new with you (image and watercolours)

Card B
Christmas Craft creations - glitter and sparkle 
As you like it - favourite paper. My favourite paper is the silver backing paper that is actually a Christmas wrapping paper, it's sooo sparkly and still soft and easy to use and glue on.
