Chilly enough for hats...

Hi Everyone Its Wednesday and time
for a new ABC Christmas Challenge!

The challenge host this time is.....

Before I get to the challenge today I have some sad news to share

We are today saying a Sad farewell to Lacey Thank you Lacey for all your help and input awesome creations and friendship and also the generous sponsorship you gave us with your shop over the last 6 and a bit years. We will miss you but wish you all the luck in the world for your pending house move and also  your new business that you have been working hard to get going!
Here is the link so you can all go check it out!

A Lot of Bling Etsy shop

and here
A Lot of Bling Facebook

So then to the challenge ahead...

H is for Hats - Christmas hats to be exact :)
and our sponsor is - Digi Stamp Boutique

I have used one of their images kindly given by the sponsor for
the ABC Christmas Challenge DT

I have tried to keep my card C&S and hand cut the top border

using my roll of DS tape as a guide as I have not got a die that cuts this shape... coloured with distress inks.

Here are some challenges I am playing along with:

Digistamp Boutique - April Customer Competition
Sparkle N Sprinkle ~ Anything Goes using Embossing Powder/Glitter
Sparkles Christmas ~ CAS Christmas
Unicorn Challenge - #8 Favourite Time of the Year (Christmas)
Crafty Boots ~ Use a Sentiment

hugs and happy Crafting
