ABC Christmas - U is for .................


Welcome to another ABC Christmas Challenge - weren't those Tiny projects gorgeous! Huge thanks to everyone who joined in - have you checked out the winner yet?

This fortnight's Challenge is...

U is for.................Unused!

We want to see your unused stash and please let us know in your post what that unused stash is.

This Weeks Sponsors

 Simon Says Stamp 

are offering one lucky entrant
 $15 voucher to spend in store




My offering for the 'UNUSED' Challenge is ....

Unused papers - that I've had for about 3 years....and they still have the wrapper on!!!

Paired with a gorgeous image from Bugaboo called Cupcake Christmas Lights

I have distressed the edges of the papers, added some sparkle to the image piece and used some gorgeous glitter ribbon too. The sentiment was done on the PC using 'Kayliegh' font.

We really look forward to seeing your Christmas cards this week made with your UNUSED stash - and don't forget to let us know what that is!
