Its as quick as that!

Well Mr Blogger has been a very bad boy the last couple of days and deleted my posts and left blank screens when I tried to edit so I really hope this posts ok today!

At ABC Christmas Challenge this fortnight we have the lovely Dorte hosting our challenge and its a fabby theme this time too! 
and before I get to this fortnight's theme, 

We are up to the letter Q and so the theme is
Q for Quick

Being a perfect challenge to get a few more 
Christmas cards in your stash pile! and if you make a quick design you can make a few the same too!

Our sponsor this time is the fabby 

and make sure you visit the challenge before starting your cards to check out the fab collection of inspiration for my teamies!

for my card I found some inspiration here at Jen Nelsons blog
Her Blog is and creations are AWESOME! so this design is hers and I have cased her card...

I wanted my card to be white so it had a bigger impact and so
I worked on a layer so the sewing was not on the inside of the card, and the texted is stamped on vellum and sewn in place!
really very quick and simple so I think I will be making some more of these! 

Here are a few challenges I am playing along with:
Crafty Sentiments - Colourful

Sweet Stamps Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations - CAS (Clean & Simple)
Crafty Boots - Christmas
Fashionista Challenge Christmas
Hobby House - Christmas
One stop craft challenge - Add stripes - hope these count?

Have a great day
