Winter wonderland–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I can’t believe it’s Friday already, my week has just gone by in a flash – which is fine with me lol!  My bathroom is coming along well, albeit slowly, but I’m sure it is going to look fantastic when it’s finished.  I hope you’ve all had a brilliant week and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend. 

It’s time for a brand new challenge over at winter wonderland challenge and this week it is my turn to set the theme.  I decided that although we all really struggle with men’s cards we do still have to make them so I chose “cards for men/boys” as my theme.  I am lucky enough to be able to share a sneak peek of an image that is due to be released over at DigiStamp Boutique called “Henry & presents” but you won’t have to wait long to get it as Sally-Ann is releasing lots of gorgeous new images in the next day or so.  Here is my card:

WW #14 - boys & men

Isn’t it such a super cute image?  I love DSB images so much and they are so easy to colour in.  You will not be disappointed with the new releases I promise you.  There are a few new Christmas images (including the one I’m sharing today) and also some gorgeous every day images too.  I’ll let you know as soon as they are available in the shop.  The papers are from my new wild rose studio “traditional Christmas” paper pack and the snowflakes have been cut with a marianne creatables die. 

We have two sponsors this week – firstly we have Crafty Emma’s store and she is offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher (excl. p&p) to spend in her online store.

and our second sponsor is squiggle stamps who are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice.
