ABC Christmas Challenge - Y for Yule (+ extras!)(DT)

OOOOOOOOOOOH!  It's 1st December!  Suddenly I feel quite unwell - three and a half weeks to you know what and I am still making cards like a mad woman.  What a very good job ABC CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE is there as incentive to get on with it!

Did you like that lead in?  Clever I thought, LOL.  Yes, it is ABC CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE time again and would you look at that, we are up to Y.  Y for Yule or Yuletide.  Originally a pagan period of feasting lasting 12 days, this has become our 12 days of Christmas.  Traditionally a lot of greenery was involved, with people decorating their houses with holly, ivy and mistletoe and having a Yule Log (no, not the chocolate ones, silly) in the hearth.  So, Yule it is but this time the extra is NOT optional - we would like to see either:  Holly & Berries, or Red & Green, or Candles, or if you are feeling adventurous, all three!

We are thrilled to be sponsored by our very own Lacey and her Wags n Whiskers.


The DT have created their usual glorious inspiration for you so do hop over and have a look at their blogs, they are such a talented bunch.

Here is my DT card:





















I went down the Yule Log route with this fabulous stamp from Pink Gem Designs.  And, you can see that it incorporates the Holly & Berries and the Red & Green too (how lucky was that).  Coloured with Copics.  Papers are from an old pad of DCWV Christmas papers.

I know you are all very busy with planning your festivities but I do so hope you will still be able to join us.  You have two weeks as usual.

Before I disappear, can I just say how overwhelmed we were with amazing entries for the X challenge - choosing a winner and the Top 3 or Top 5 is going to be so difficult so please bear with us - the winners will be announced on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog very soon!

Hugs. Squirrel xx

Fantastic card, Squirrel! The image is lovely and so perfect for the theme:-)! I am also very jealous of your sentiment... I love those round sentiments, have ordered some from the UK, which I haven't received yet... I just hope they are not lost in the snow (sigh)! Hugs Delphine xx PS: Congrats on the perfect start for your post:-)
