Good morning dear friends. Hasn’t the weather been really shocking this week and I hope you haven’t experienced the awful damage I’ve seen on the TV. It’s been very windy and wet here but thankfully we haven’t had any problems with flooding or any damage. I hope you all keep warm, dry and safe.
I’m here this morning to share my DT card for this week’s Winter Wonderland challenge and the lovely Marianne has set the theme and she has chosen “let’s go shopping “ and she would like to see images that are shopping or holding shopping bags etc. . Our challenge does not have to be for Christmas, although you can if you like, as we don’t start our Christmas only challenges until February. I really struggled with this challenge as I seem to have misplaced my mojo this week so if anyone has any spare please send it my way lol! Anyway here is my card:
I used a super cute image from Lori Boyd designs called ‘back to school Lucy’ but I removed her pile of books! I coloured her using promarkers and flex markers and cut her out with an oval nestie. The papers are a magazine freebie from quite a while ago and the card (which is really turquoise IRL) is stampin’ up. The ribbon isn’t quite so dark IRL either but hey-ho my wonderful photography skills at work again!!
We have some new DT members joining us from this week and joining Team Marianne we have Bridget and Karen and joining Team Kate we have Debbie and Lisa. Welcome girls, I cannot wait to see your wonderful creations.
