Jingle Bells Jingle Bells Jingle all the way....

To the ABC Christmas challenge today!

Teehhehhee its Wednesday and its time for a New
fun Christmas Challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge.

Its my turn to host the challenge and I choose
J for Jingle Bells!

We have a great sponsor 

and we have our New Designers joining us too! yay!!

Bettina, Kelly and Wilma!
Welcome to the team girls!

So then to my card
I have used this cute digi stamp from Bugaboo called Little-Penguin-Winter--reindeer

I have had good fun making this card, the image is coloured with distress inks and Markers and I added Glossy accents to the Bells and his beak and feet.
The Ribbon and the spotty DP I distressed with a little peeled paint.
The Kraft card stock I distressed with Vintage photo and then drew the lines in a while Gel pen to make them stripy. I have added the bunting to the jute and the Sentiment is one I have made and you can get it here as a freebie from me to you! I have also added a lot of doodling for my faux stitching, added some card candy and some stickles.

I look forward to reading all your lovely comments and just wanted to say thank you to you all! Please also visit my teamies cause they love your comments and their inspiration is awesome too!
