Alpha Challenge - I and X

We have reached the last 2 letters of the alphabet on The Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge, which has been running all year.  I am very proud of myself to have kept up for the whole year, a rarity for me!  My last 2 ATCs are Insect and Xmas - which I was very pleased to have found was in the dictionary because otherwise I had no idea what I would use for X!

I will pop photos up of the completed set in the book I have made after Christmas.  Too much going on at the moment to sort it all out!

Christmas Candles

I haven't stamped any candles for a while and came across two blank ones in my cupboard so thought I would decorate them for pressies.  My first problem was my Stazon ink pad - it was completely bone dry!  Admittedly I haven't used it for a while, but it was stored upside down, and this is the first ink pad over many years that has COMPLETELY dried out!  Luckily I had a spare one!  My second problem was several of my Marvy Le Plumes, also fairly old, were leaking so I had to make a few impressions that weren't smudged!

Eventually I completed two candles!!  And am entering them for Ruby's Rainbow's Christmas Challenge!

Exciting News - DT Call!!

My dear friend Shaz is starting a new challenge blog on 4th January, called Gruffies and Guests - where you will be able to use all your lovely House Mouse, Happy Hoppers and Gruffies images!  She asked me if I would like to be on the DT and although I thought I had retired from all the challenge blogs I was on, House Mouses are one of my favourites so I came out of retirement and said yes!

If you would like to enter the DT call, pop over to Gruffies and Guests where you will find all the information you need.  The call is open from today until 14th December, so good luck!
