Another 1st for 2012

Its our First Challenge of 2012 at ABC Christmas Challenge and you just have to come and play!
Maybe you all over dosed at making Christmas cards but you really must come and play with us this year and you will I promise be very ready for Christmas 2012, we had lots of ladies playing last year and they were ALL really really pleased they did join in as MOST of them were ready and even had time to relax and play and try new things for a change.
Ok so on to our first challenge, We are back to the letter A and to make it nice and easy for you Lacey our Host has chosen the theme Anything Christmas Goes. 

Our Fabulous Sponsors are
And a New Sponsor to our Challenge yippee
Ribbon Girl

I have chosen this lovely Sketch from Sketch Saturday
I have used the cute image provided by Stamp Fairy - Barry Countdown To Christmas he is soooo cute, the papers are from EP times and Seasons, I have used a MS punch and also my ribbler for the pale blue/green spotty paper and also the top corner under the star brads, I also glittered the star brads with clear embossing powder and glamour dust.

Here’s a closer look
Think you can see the stickles better on the close up and also the glossy accents on Barry’s nose, feet and stars :0)
