Winter wonderland - DT card

Hello crafters, well better late than never thanks to Mr Blogger I’m able to post my card for this week’s winter wonderland challenge.  This week the lovely Jane has set the theme and she chosen “Christmas presents” so you can either use an image which has a present on it or make a Christmas themed present.  Here is my card:

WW #8 - christmas presents

WW #8 - christmas presents (inside)

I decided to have a go at a joy-fold card as I’ve seen them around blogland a lot recently.  I have to say I found it really easy to make and will definitely be making more.  I think they look really fun.  I have used a super cute image from Di’s digi downloads called ‘holly Christmas’ and coloured it with my promarkers.  I was very late making my card (tut tut I know) so kept the embellishments to a minimum. 

Our sponsor this week is pink gem designs and the winner will receive 4 digi images of their choice.


My lovely team mates have created amazing samples to please pop over and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafty calendar challenge – teddy bears

Aly’s Sunday challenge – shaped cards (hope my joy-fold is allowed)

OSAAT challenge – fancy folds

Sentimental Sunday challenge – anything goes

Craft your passion challenge – use plaids, checks or ginghams

I hope you will all have a wonderful weekend.  I haven’t forgotten about my blogoversary candy – I’m just sorting out what goodies to offer!  Thanks for stopping by.
