May Your Days Be Merry & Bright…..

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is

‘Q is for Queen of Hearts’
(Use a heart in your creation either as part of the image, paper or as an embellishment)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Polkadoodles.


I’ve chosen to use one of their pre-coloured images today from the Twiggy & Toots Collection and make this Christmas Card.


Isn’t this image adorable? And the image has a heart ornament and little hearts on her dress. Just perfect for this challenge. I was originally planning to colour this image but ran out of time so I was glad it comes with a pre-coloured in the fabulous collection along with lots of other wonderful images, sentiments, templates, etc.

My image was printed onto X-Press It Blending Card and cut out using the Large Classic & Scallop Square Nestabilities.

Here’s a closer look at the image.



Stamps: Angel Owl - Twiggy & Toots (Polkadoodles), Sentiment (LOTV)
Card: Thick Whisper White, Real Red & Garden Green (Stampin’ Up), X-Press it Blending Card
Papers: Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper (Stampin’ Up)
Ink & Markers: Real Red (Stampin’ Up)
Dies & Punches: Doohickey Club 2 (Magnolia), Large Classic & Scallop Square Nestabilities (Spellbinder), 1 3/4” Circle Punch (Stampin’ Up), Cherish ‘Around the Page’ Punch (Martha Stewart)
Accessories: Rhinestone (Stampin’ Up), Lace (stash)

If you haven’t already stopped by ABC Challenges and checked out what the rest of the DT have created then please do so now.

I’m entering my card into the following challenges.
