Hello everyone, and thanks for your good wishes about my birthday and nasty cough. I'm pleased to report that I had a good sleep last night and feel a bit more human now, so I hope I'll be ready to enjoy my trip to Port Sunlight for the Happy Stampers show on Saturday and have a catch up with crafting chums. Now I don't want to scare you, but after this challenge, there will only be two more ABC Christmas Challenges left before the big day! I have a pretty good stash of festive cards, but still not enough, so I was glad to add another to my pile.
For our October challenge, we have reached
U for Upcycle
V for Velocity
I opted for U for Upcycle and used some of this pretty gift box from last Christmas and some thin cardboard from another package that came in the post.
The MFT mugs were cut from the cardboard and I just inked the edges before adding the decorations.
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and I stacked it three times before adding it to the gold card, which I trimmed with scissors to make a banner. I love the stamped chocolate sprinkles, mini marshmallows and little chocolate that comes with this set - great finishing touches to any mug of hot chocolate!
You'll find lots of inspiration from my talented teammates over on the ABC Challenge blog and I look forward to seeing your cards in the gallery.
I'd like to play along at
