ABC Christmas - R is for.....

This fortnight at...


R is for.................

'Recycling, Ribbon or Rhinestones'

Pop over to ABC Christmas Challenge to see Carissa's Recycling tutorial
(Oh, how I LOVE Recycling in my card making!)

We have a great sponsor again... 

Who have an awesome selection of digital stamps, papers & more,

and our Winner will receive 3 digital stamps of their choice.

Of course I had to go with the Recycling 'R'

and turned this...

into this...

I've just got to think of something to put in it now!

I've used a gorgeous image from our sponsor called Santa's Helper - isn't she sweet!
She's coloured with Promarkers and layered onto papers from DCWV Rose-Tinted Christmas ...I bought 3 of these stacks a couple of years ago and have just started my last one for this card :(

I also managed to get a few challenges into this little box too.......
