ABC Christmas challenge

I'm just in time to join in with this weeks ABC Christmas challenge. Now I've not really made many Christmas cards as yet this year, but seeing as we are over half way through 2011 (eeeek!) I guess now is a good time to start if I want to avoid the usual last minute panic. The theme for the weeks challenge is M for Monochrome.
I am also continuing to support Jules' crafty snippets challenge in her bid to reduce stock piles of snippets.
TBH I'm not sure I'm making much progress Jules, as fast as I use up bits I seem to make more :0!

Image - Penny Black 'Majestic' heat embossed with detailed white powder onto a white snippet.
Distress inks - stormy sky; broken china; faded jeans & chipped sapphire.
DP - Pink Petticoat (a snippet of course) mounted onto another snippet of dark blue card.
Navy fine liner faux stitching
Little but of left over ribbon from snippet box.
So that makes 2 card snippets, 1 DP snippet and 1 ribbon bit less in the box :0)
Thanks for visiting!

  5. Hi Kaz

    Another wonderful creation .. .. I do love your use of white card and distress inks .. .. a great look.

    Fabby layout for this one too.

    I know what you mean about the snippet pile not reducing very much. I was tempted to post a picture of all my snippets last Sunday and chickened out as I was too embarrassed by the amount I have LOL!!!

    I am using them but as you say .. making more in the process!! Sometimes I only use part of a snippet so end up with just a smaller version of what I started with!!!

    Never mind .. .. I will continue.

    Thanks for keeping me company again this week. It is lovely to have playmates.

    Love Jules xx

  6. Beautiful card and a great way to use your snippets.
