N for New, O for Old at ABC Christmas Challenge

N is for New, O is for Old

Hard to believe it is July already! 
A brand new challenge is up at ABC Christmas Challenge and we are on the letters "N" and "O"

The NEW on my card is the digi image and the sentiment stamp (new to me) from Avery Elle. The OLD is the holly paper which has been in my stash for so long I can't remember. There's a feeling of satisfaction when you cut into a paper that has been around 10+ years...think I am going to do that more often and stop hoarding. 


Prize is a $10 gift certificate to our lucky winner.

Our second sponsor is
They are also offering a $10 gift certificate as well. 

Last but not least...Helen is hosting this challenge and she has a prize to offer as well.

Today's card was made using a digi that one of our sponsors provided, Fred She Said, and it's Little Fat Santa Digi. This is such a cute image and it is a great purchase because several options come with the image including a printable sheet of mini-Santa's. I requested the uncolored version however there is a colored version and after looking at my image I wondered why I did not request the colored one. ;) I readily admit that coloring is not my gift but one of these days I plan to sit down and really apply myself to learning to use my Copic's and other markers to their full advantage. Does anyone else struggle with coloring? I'd love to know if you do or if you've found some awesome tips or tricks you'd like to share. 

Be sure to visit the challenge blog to see more inspiration using digital images from our sponsor, Fred She Said. Samantha has a handmade crochet project to share that you won't want to miss! Hope your summer (winter for Aussie's) is going better for you than ours is.....too much rain here. ;)

I'll be back Thursday the 6th with a design team project for The Cutting Cafe. 

Crafty Hugs,

I'm afraid my colouring is pretty basic. I've watched people get fantastic results and make it look so easy. I'd love to get better at blending. Your cute little Santa looks great against the holly paper.
