About Our challenges

- We post our challenges every Friday at 12:00pm AEST (AEDT during Daylight Savings).
- Each challenge runs for a week, and will close on the Thursday 5.00pm so that we can announce and showcase our weekly winners prior to the next challenge.
- Each weeks winner will receive our special blinkie to display on their blog and a special little something. Our last challenge for the month will be a sketch challenge which will attract our main prize of a $15.00 gift voucher for that weeks winner.

How To Play Along :
- Copy and save our challenge banner and include it and a link back to the ABS blog in your post.
- Please link directly to your entry not just to your blog.
- Please don't link to postings made prior to the date of our current challenge. All projects submitted must be new.
- A maximum of 7 challenges may be combined including this one.
- You may enter any challenge several times as long as each submission is with a new creation.
- We would love you to use AnnaBelle Stamps and embellishments, but you can play along without using them, it’s all about sharing ideas ☺

The minute I saw this card last Friday I loved it and only now have I had the chance to comment! I love your colours and the simple image used as your focal point. It just pops!!

Hi Sue. I haven't been inspired for Christmas yet - before now that is! So so gorgeous!!!
The other size butterfly that i used is from an old Hero Arts set that had 4 wooden stamps in it. I bought just this one from one of their tubs at Paperific. It has the words 'celebrate today' on it. If you want to email me your address I can send you some stamped up images. Hugs Jenny B x
