Happy Christmas !!! (& Freebies)

After yesterday's exciting news, I'm got even more excitement to share today because I've been offered a guest designer spot at ABC Christmas for this fortnight's challenge.

ABC Christmas are being sponsored by StampFairy, and because I'm one of the Stamp Fairy DT, I've been allowed to join in the fun with the ABC Christmas girls. 

Ok, I admit that although after December, I did fancy a break from making cards with penguins and snowflakes (I can hear all you dedicated Xmas card crafters gasp in disbelief!) but I'm recovered now, and back with a vengeance.  So much so, that I've dug out my Christmas stash box that I'd put in the cupboard, and not even put it away again (well that was after a bit of a ticking off by Samantha from ABC Christmas Challenge who thought it was a crime to hide all my Xmas stash away during the year !!!)  

I'm reformed now, honest Samantha!  And to pay my penance, I've got a special Christmassy freebie to give away today, created especially for my GDT spot with the ABC girls (see below).

Anyway, here's my sample card for this fortnight's challenge, which is 'for someone you Love', combined with a colour theme of Green, Red & Silver (how wonderfully Christmassy is that !!!). 


Card Recipe:
I hope to see you all join in the L for someone you Love (with green, red & silver) challenge at ABC Christmas, and please pop over to the challenge blog to see the other fab designs by the other DT members who are joined by some more of my Stamp Fairy teamies, including Gerda herself.

Freebie:
Finally, as promised above, here is my Christmas Sentiment freebie that I've used above.  You're free to download it if you like it; click on the image for a larger version, then right click and 'save picture as' to save to your own computer. 

My conditions are as follows:
  1. Please become a follower, then you will see more freebies as they are posted,
  2. Please leave a comment on this post to let me know you've downloaded it, and
  3. Please don't share my freebies directly with other people.
I also adore seeing your creations using my digi sentiments, so I'd really love you to send me an email with links to your creations so I can pop over for a peek!

I don't mention the word till November... and all my C*****S stash is hidden away all year! But it's FAB!! Love that image.... Will log it in the memory bank to refer to later in the year!

Congratulations on your new designing team. I love your new Christmas sentiment. I'll make good use of it. I've never sent a card showing my use of digis, or stamps. Seems like I don't use them for a long time, but I'm thankful to you for your lovely art work.
