An Alphabet Christmas Card!

Coffee of the Day - Chocolate Peppermint

Today's letter for the ABC Christmas challenge is 'K for Kept Safe'. we are being challenged to actually use those things we have been hoarding for so long! my card has several of those, but it also has another little letter on it - 'S is for Snow'! :) We are sponsored this fortnight by Kenny K.

I am using the fun little snowman digi from Kenny K on my card, in addition to the color palette they have on their challenge blog right now.

Papers are My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas, little piece of aqua twine cord is May Arts, circle sentiment is Create with TLC sprayed with Dewey Mr. Huey's mist, and tab die is MFT. the snowman is paper pieced and sits in stickles snow. stickles also edges the sentiment circle. some buttons & faux stitching complete the card. it's fairly simple, but oh, so easy to mail!

my 'kept safe' items include the cord, which is almost at its end.... boo hoo! I have 1 more little piece the same size as this one and have been holding on to it for dear life! tee hee! the Mr. Huey's Dewey mist is almost gone because I REALLY love this color, so I find I don't use it as much. and finally, I have had the MFT mini tab dies for over a year and never used them before, so this seemed like the perfect time to get them out! this one is part of a set of 4. they're pretty cute! I'm almost out of my stickles, too, but y'all know I use that ALL the time! no hoarding there! ha!

Jen I can relate to the stickles comment so easily!
Whenever mine starts getting low I go into a blin panic! Rofl! :0)

Just noticed you're on exactly the same followers as me - it's a cool number that 526... one to be proud of! Smiles.

Anyway, enough waffling (ho hum!)
I love your sweet little card so very much. I have a four year old girl here who would agree with the "S is for Snow" part.. Hehehee.

Thank you so very much for joining us at Creative Creations for our Paper Piecing Challenge & Good Luck!
