Half way there! ABC Christmas Blog Hop - M is for Mistletoe

Oh we have a fun challenge
and also a ½ way there blog hop this fortnight at the ABC Christmas this time! 

I can hardly believe we have already got ½ way through the alphabet yikes! teheheee!

I have good news and bad news!

Good news is if you have been joining in with us so far you should have a healthy pile of cards! YAY! The bad news is if you have not been joining in maybe you have no cards made yet! ekkkkkk!

sooooo come on get ya fingers busy and join in from this challenge you have a good chance of getting a healthy head start on your Christmas pile!

IF you have come here from Lorraine's blog then you are going in the right direction!
If not pop back to the beginning of our ½ way blog hop so you don't miss anyone out.

We thought it would be fun if we all asked you a question
My question is
What's your favourite Christmas film?

Leave your answer with your comment on each blog as some of us have surprise candy to offer.
Be sure to leave us all a comment and answer our separate questions.....
As you never know who is in with a chance of winning our mini candy's
as we are not saying who has the candy! thehehee,  You will need to have entered your card/project on the main challenge to enter our mini candy.

The challenge this time is M for Mistletoe and or wine,
with the extra challenge of sewing it can be any type of sewing it can be hand/machine or faux stitching.

We are sooo lucky to have Lacey with her brilliant
Where do I buy Wags \
as our sponsor 
I have used "you make me happy" a Krafin kimmie stamp,
Lacey kindly sent us some items to use for this challenge, Thanks Lacey.

OK so my card
I have used a cute little mistletoe stamped sentiment that Lacey sent me,
I decided to use the wine element too in the shape of the beautiful wine coloured ribbon
and colouring her dress and shoes.
I decided to machine stitch my card together so I have not really used glue
I coloured the image with Distress inks and used glossy accents on her shoes and the mistletoe, I added some perfect pearls when I coloured her dress which has given a little shimmer. I have used PC sentiments.
I often tell our customers that come to the shop that I use glossy accents for some many different things I actually used it to glue the bow on too!

Think I will have a play along with

Bah Humbugs: Anything Goes too!
Winter Wonderland - 'Traditional Christmas Flower' Mistletoe and poinsettia backing paper
