I missed so many of the ABC Christmas Challenges this year. I’m still in holiday card making mood as i still have all my papers etc out and in front of may face. I decided to work backwards and catch up with the challenges. I am currently working on P for paper piecing. I have already posted my Y and Z. I will list the challenges below. This will give me a great head start on my next year’s cards. I never seem to have the time for stamping once November hits it’s just go, go, go. With what I had left over from last year’s cards and what i have now completed I am 17 cards ahead for next year’s sixty plus cards I mail out. I really need these ABC Christmas challenges to keep things fresh. I can hardly stand to make duplicate cards. Although i did purchase a kit to make ten identical cards at the Vendor show. What was I thinking? Well the price was good and it included stamps and lots of die cuts for all ten cards. Couldn’t go wrong for the price.
X~Criss Cross my card has X’s on the designer paper like cross stitch
W~Wishing I used my Simon Wishing die
V~Vertical long snowman card. I used stencils
U~under the pile (anything in your stash more than a year old) found this cute santa image for a tag
T~ is for Two Two different types of pinecones
S~sew well you know i don’t do that, i added faux stitching with my wonky stitched die
R~rip it just tore a little strip of paper
Q~Quick layout I always go to my MFT blueprints for quick layouts. This was BluePrints #6 ~~Don’t ask how i got that top piece to look like that. It turned out really cool but i was just trying to emboss over Gesso and it wouldn’t take and this is what i ended up with after five times of trying to fix it. So while it was a quick layout it certainly wasn’t a quick card.
