Merry Christmas!

Yea, I can finally tell you that I am a proud new member of the ABC Christmas Challenge Design team, yippee!  This means that by December 1st, I will be up to my eyebrows in Christmas cards and somehow, magically, everything else will have worked itself out as well. 

For my first challenge and the second of the year, it's B for Bows or Boys.  Really, this card could be for both.  I flipped this cute Bugaboo penguin to turn the candy cane into a 'J', stamped the 'oy' and a bow and voila!


Don't forget to head on over to the ABC blog and check out the DT's gorgeous creations, and meet the rest of the new DT too!

Challenges:
Sketch - Retro Sketches (well, that's where I started anyway...)
White on White - Crafty Sentiments
Bling it Up - Creative Craft Challenges (glittery candy cane)
Tie Up Your Loose Ends (use a bow) - Papertake Weekly
Winter Spirit - Ribbon Carousel 
Keep It Simple - Creative Creations
For the birds - Merry Monday
Scandinavian Christmas (red and white) - Jingle Belles
