N is for Numbers

Hello, and welcome back to the ABC Christmas Challenge!

It's Helen here, with another fun challenge to help you get ahead with your Christmas cards! 

Before I get on to this fortnight's theme, don't forget to check the post below to see if you were a lucky winner!

This time our challenge is:

'N is for Numbers'

(Simply feature some digits on your project)

We have a wonderful sponsor this time:
All Dressed Up.
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies. The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis. We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

The lucky winner will receive two free digis of their choice
from Wendy’s Etsy shop!

Now it's time for some inspiration...we have been joined by some of the All Dressed Up DT:

 All Dressed up Guest Designers


And of course, we also have lots of projects from the ABC Christmas girls:

Chris - Little Angel
