ABC Christmas U is for Its Up to you!

Hey all we are up to the letter U at ABC Christmas Challenge this time
we have the lovely Carissa as our host and the theme this time is

 U for Up to you!
So ANYTHING Christmas let your hair down and play!
We have 2 Fabby sponsors:

and I have to say the Design Team have done us proud once again!
for my card I have used one of the Cute images for Meljens

called Bundled Little Snowboy and I think he is sooooo darn cute!
I coloured him with distress inks and had fun with dries clear glue and glamour dust.
I have followed Sketch Saturday's awesome sketch.

as the challenge is Up to you I also decided I would have a play with my sewing machine too! and used straight stitch and zigzag, the sentiment I stamped direct and I can confess I was a little worried because I stamped that last! Ekkkk!! and if you think I am fibbing click the photo because you can see the ink on the sewing, haha!  

Here are some challenges I am playing along with:

Sketch Saturday's Awesome sketch
House of Gilli - Anything Goes
Fashionista Challenge - Anything Goes
Ooh La La Creations - Christmas Sentiment + DT call
MyGrafico - Anything Goes
Delicious Doodles - Monochrome

Stamp and Create - Winter Wonderland
