ABC Christmas Challenge #1

Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and warm?
The weather here has been so cold and is set to get colder still and the snow and ice are everywhere, so I haven't been out for a couple of days (shhhhh, don't tell but I've spent most of the time under the duvet watching TV in the decadent lol!)
I braved the chill of my craftroom again today (I'm still trying to catch up with that darned 'to do' list) but I also made time to enter one of the new christmas card challenges.

This card is for the ABC Christmas Challenge where the theme is 'A for Angels'. I decided to use a free digi image by Inger Harding called Winter Angel, isn't she sweet? I could do with that cosy outfit here at the moment.
If you haven't visited Inger's blog Simply Inger before please do, she's such a talented lady and you'll be in for a real treat.
All the other elements of the card are from a digital kit called 'Joy to the World'. Unfortunately, I've had this so long I can't remember where it originally came from, but if anyone knows please remind me.

Card Details:
* Image - Inger Harding freebie 'Winter Angel'
* Sentiment - PC generated
* Everything else from my stash

Some of you may have noticed the 'JUST SAY NO' banner on my sidebar, well following on from this ABC Christmas Challenge is offering some candy, see HERE for further details.
If you regularly blog hop or are part of a DT for a challenge blog, you'll already be aware how difficult and time consuming it can be to leave comments on a blog when word verification is enabled. You can remain just as safe by simply having comment modification enabled, so please think about joining in with this campaign.

There was I - just going to ask where the delicious ribbon borders came from - and you can't remember. Never mind - the card is lovely. I have this image (already printed out) but didn't get round to using it yet. Must use it before it gets lost or crumpled.
I think you've got the right idea about keeping warm. Have you been having your meals brought in to you

Fabulous card Chrissie and I agree with you Ingar's images are fabulous. I agree on the word verification ban too - I really don't know why people have the stupid thing on - as you say if comment moderation is turned on no 'bad' stuff can get on your blog anyway. I particularly hate the word verifications that pop up and shake your screen - they're really bad for the eyes.

sheesh I'm moaning badly.

Lovely card Chrissie - I love her little rosy cheeks! I know what you mean about the word verification too, I turned it off on my blogs about 18 months ago and have been fine with comment moderation.

Happy New Year, my friend!

Chrissie, this card is amazing! The image is positively huggable! I have just gotten back into my studio after over a week of frigid temperatures. My studio is in a colder part of the house, too, so I did a lot of coloring in a warmer room. I hope you can get warmed up soon, too!
