Tickled Pink Stamps Christmas Challenge #1!!!!!

Hey there everyone, Emma here...

Do you want to get an early start on those Christmas cards????  Well if you do, come and join in with us at Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Christmas Challenge will have plenty of time to join in with us and it's always great to get ahead with those Christmas cards and creations don't you think?!?!?!?!?  Our theme for this very exciting first Christmas Challenge is 'Traditional Christmas Colours'....a really easy one there hey!!!!
For lots and lots of Christmas themed inspiration check out the gorgeous work from the Challenge Pink Ladies HERE....and as always there is always a FAB prize on offer from the very sweet Kellie!!!

I decided to make another 4"x4" mini card....these are just such a cute size and hardly weigh anything to post!!!  I have used some paper scraps up I had left from last years Christmas cards and distressed, glittered and machine stitched the edges, the ribbon, lace and pins are from the market....I have added extra beads to the pins so they look a bit more special!!  The bell and metallic snowflake are from stash...

....I have used the adorable 'Mollie Mittens Christmas' available in rubber or digi at Tickled Pink Stamps.  I have used grey lead pencil to colour her....I am a little bit addicted to black and white colouring at the minute heehee!!!...

....I have used the gorgeous Pink Valentine die available HERE at Tickled Pink Stamps and the Christmas sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs

Don't forget to join in with us this month.....its never to early to make a start on those Christmassy creations!!!!
Thanks for looking and all the FAB comments....
Big hugs
