Good News and ABC Christmas Challenge

Well, how pleased am I........whoop woooooo. I won the Penny Black Challenge, and I can't believe my luck. Like an 'old fool' I went on PB blog to see if I could attempt the next challenge, quickly browsed at the names, and thought ah ha some one with the same name as me has won, how lucky are they. Click on the name to have a nose and it came straight to my blog, still it took a few seconds and another click on the button before it sunk in that it was ME! I never win hardly anything. So I wont go on about it (hehehehe), but can't wait to receive the stamps.....oooo it's like Christmas, which brings me on to the next subject.
I've not done this one before. Seems a little weird doing Christmas so soon but I know we have to make a start soon (if you haven't already). What I really like about challenges is that it makes you look at all the stamps you have stashed away for ever, like the one I've used for this.
I bought this from EBay donkey's years ago and really cheaply.
It's from Rubber Stampede called 'Ornaments' I decoupage the top four baubles, coloured with Promakers and then used picture glaze to make them nice and glossy.
I've used a piece of ice blue card and embossed it which hopefully makes it look like crackled ice. Added ribbon and some snow flakes. Die cut the letters and used holographic card.
