Charisma cardz challenge #47 – DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you are all ok this morning…..I wonder how many of you are snowed in?  We haven’t seen any of the white stuff yet but it’s been forecast for the weekend and I don’t mind as I have a week off work next week *yay*.  I am here today to share my DT card for this week’s charisma cardz challenge.  We have a lovely, easy challenge this week, which has been set by Carol and she has chosen “one for the girls”, how fantastic is that?  I was inspired by the some odd girl challenge to try making a window card, which I’ve never done before… here is my card (sorry there are a few pics today):

I have used a gorgeous image from Some Odd Girl called “snowy Mae”.  I love their quirky images and they are just a dream to colour.  The card is quite simple and when I have time I will probably add a sentiment on the inside and cover the other white side with matching paper but I didn’t have chance to do it now.  I have also used my brand new Christmas ticket sentiment stamp set and matching die cut from Whimsy Stamps.  The delivery was super quick and the postage was very reasonable considering it had to come from USA.  I will definitely be ordering from there again. 

We have three brilliant sponsors this week – DigiStamp Boutique is offering one lucky winner 6 digis.

We also have Some Odd Girl sponsoring us and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digis of their choice.
