Do or die!

Well as Christmas draws ever closer we only have a couple of challenges on 2012 left at ABC Christmas Challenge this fortnight. We have a little bit of sad News for ABC Kelly one of our lovely DT girls is leaving the team due to other commitments but we will see her in blogland (waving)!

 We are up to the letter Y on the ABC Christmas Challenge and Helen is our Host for this challenge and the theme is

Y for YOUR Favourite Die or Punch

Our Sponsors

There's also a 50% sale on at the moment so pop over there to grab a bargain...

Simon Says Stamp 

we have Guest designers from Stampfairy and Gerda, was kind and let us choose an image to use...

For my card I choose Mimi Winter 1 and my Favourite dies
are at the moment are Memory box dies BUT.... there are so many I could not add them all! haha! I have used Frosty Border, snowflake corner, and also a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and EK success double crochet edge punch, oh and a spellbinders square nestie die too!

I have coloured the Image with Distress inks and highlighted with a white gel pen, I have used Bo Bunny papers and some memory box paper, added Glamour dust to her hat and the ground, and added a few dome glitter gems.
