"Take a Letter, Ms Jones...."

Ooooh have we got a Super-sneaky Daring Cardmakers Little Extra for you this weekLOLLOLLOL

"Take a Letter, Ms Jones...."
OK, it's not about monograms, we've already done thatLOL.
This time the challenge is to pick one letter and see how many things you can use on your card that begin with that letter.
Now then, you can't choose "P" and just have pink paper, pink brads, pink ink, pink ribbon - oh no no no, that's not the way it works!
You could however, use
A pink card blank, paper, petals, plasma, a monogram P, something Purple, a Flower Pot...
Or how about B?
brads, buttons, birthday, banana (well, you never know..Wink) blue, black, brown, blooms, buckles, bows
Or S
spots, stripes, string, sandals, Stickles, sunshine, stars, snow

I've done these:
In case it isn't obvious (haha) I chose letter "R" for this one.
So my list is:
Red card, Robin, Ricrac and ribbon, oh and the font is called Ryan BT if I can squeeze that one in under the wire....
EDIT - Thanks to the wonderful Debbie for reminding me that I can add ROBO to my list....

I know it's only a short list, but it's all I could manage!

I used the snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background and I made the robin using my Robo.
I am sorry to admit that I have now made TWO Christmas cards, thus going totally against my own rule of not mking the little beggars till after my birthday. I blame all these way-too-organised crafty bloggers for making me do it!

Another teddy card (thanks again to Jo for coming up with this fabby little fella).
My chosen letter this time is "T"
Teddy, tag, tie, textures flowers and paper tearing
Papers are all sei Hippy Chick
Texture is fmade by the "Spots & Dots" C-bug embossing folder

Now it's over to you - we'd love to see what you can come up with for this challenge, it's a tough one so - Do You Dare?

That's a tough dare - but you've done wonders with your lovely robin card - it's great.

Both great cards Kathy!!

Seeing as I used the brand names for the paper and stamps I used, I won't quibble at your using the name of your font, LOL!!

These are great cards,love how you did the bird, you only made two Christmas cards, I won't tell you how many I have made, BUT, none of them are for me so I guess you could say I have not made any yet.
