To the Letter (or maybe number) ...

Hi everybody

As I am writing this the rain is pouring down and the wind howling outside - so I guess Autumn really is here. 

This week at  Anything Goes  we want to see Letters or Numbers on your project, whether it is a card or something else.

I realised when I was doing my card that all the chipboard letters and grunge board letters that I had were far too big, so I have resorted to using numbers that fitted with my Christmas Card.  My image is from FSS.  The papers are, I believe, from Basic Grey Jovial, although I cannot be sure, as I have a box of Christmas papers and no covers in the packs.  Ribbons and flowers are from stash.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
Christmas Inspirations - Die Cuts and/or Punches
Christmas Card Challenge - Stickers (my numbers are chi[pboard stickers)
Corrosive Challenges - Flying things
Crafting When we Can - Christmas
By the Cute & Girly - Anything Goes
Sparkles Christmas Forum - Christmas Songs - When The Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin' Along
Crazy 4 Challenges - Create something for an up and coming holiday
Just some lines - Reminds me of a Song - When The Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin' Along

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
