G is for Glitter

Good morning and welcome to another challenge 
at ABC Christmas Challenge.

For this challenge I, Wilma, am your host.

First I like to thank you for your beautiful entries. We had a great time looking at them!

This time the theme is:

Use (a lot of) glitter on your creation (stickles/paper/embossing powder).

I don’t think that this is a difficult challenge. We hope you will join us again.
Be sure it is a Christmas creation!

Our sponsor:
Prize is 3 digital images
Digi and rubber stamps from KennyK are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations! The creator, the artist, the man: Kenny K is a NYC-born professional illustrator who has brought his funky-but-slick, urban-influenced look to the cardmaking and papercrafts world. His signature style can be seen throughout his various collections of sexy pin-up babes, sweet 'n sassy girls, cool rockin' dudes, kid’s stuff, retro characters and more at KennyKDownloads.com.

Have fun with this challenge.

We look forward to seeing your  Christmas "Glitter" creations.

Winners : F for Friends and Family

Good morning everyone. 

It's time to announce the winners and top three 
for our F - Friends and Family challenge.

It seemed like you were not over keen on this challenge theme because as well as not having many entries (although it was March so perhaps you're not thinking about Christmas yet) but many of those who did enter didn't check the challenge explanation saying that we wanted to see personalised Friends and Family sentiments, not just a card that you could give to a friend (especially as we would hope that most of your cards could be given to a friend!!!  LOL).

Anyway, we do have a winner who has won a fabulous prize:

Our Sponsor for this challenge was a $10 certificate to 

And our winner is 

with her gorgeous card for her step-mum:
I really love the way she's created that tree too. 
Fab card Margaret.

And our top three are:

Congratulations Everyone!

Please email us to claim your prize
unclaimed prizes may be redrawn or worse still lost.
