Use Your Alphabet

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme this week has been chosen by Jo and is 'Use Your Alphabet' Jo would like to see you use letters of the alphabet for something other than a sentiment. Our wonderful sponsors this week are Whimsy Stamps and Craftbag. So 2 chances to win :-)

So onto my DT card, I have made a Christmas card for my son Jack using a cross-stitched festive alphabet design. I have kept the card design simple to draw the eye to the stitched piece. I made the card using a piece of Bazzill Bling cardstock. I now need to get busy making a second card for Jack's brother Thomas otherwise I will be in the doghouse come Christmas...!

Image - stitched on 16 count aida using a design from The World of Cross Stitching magazine
Sentiment & faux ribbon tails - from a 2012 festive goody bag from Craftwork Cards
Other - Bazzill Bling cardstock
