This is it! December has arrived, and that means we are at the last two letters of the ABC Christmas Challenge alphabet: Y and Z. Let's begin with Y for Your Favourite Things:
I picked a couple of real life favourite things - the colour red, cats, and two favourite cardmaking things - heat embossing and watercolouring. This Penny Black stamp is an oldie but goodie, and provided a large Santa hat for my red. I used an alphabet stamp set for my ho ho ho - much easier than trying to mask a one piece ho ho ho stamp!
Our second prompt this month is Z for Zzzzz... This seemed like the perfect theme to combine with the current Christmas Kickstart challenge: Twas the Night Before Christmas!
Oh look, another cat! I did actually consider a sleeping dog, but he was a little too big for the rest of the scene. The scene is made up of stamps from two different MFT sets, and the background and sentiment are patterned paper. A little Copic colouring and everything came together quite easily.
I'm also entering this into the current The Library Challenge - it's The Night Before Christmas, but I'm inspired by the theme, not the book cover. (And we librarians know it's really called A Visit From St. Nicholas...) ;)
Perhaps the two letter prompts and the beautiful work of the rest of the ABC design team will be just what you need to get those last few cards done! You have right until the end of the year to join us.
