Good morning dear friends. Well I hope you’re enjoying the “indian summer” we’re experiencing at the moment – boy it’s been really hot hasn’t it? It’s so much nicer than all the rain we’ve been having lately and let’s hope it lasts for the weekend.
I’m here this morning to share my card for this week’s challenge over at winter wonderland challenge. This week it’s Squirrel’s turn from Team Marianne to set the theme and she has chosen “how charming”, so we would like to see a charm on your creation somewhere. Now I have to say I have an aversion to charms as I don’t really know how to attach them properly. Everyone else seems to use them without much bother but I’m useless however I took the challenge and here is my card:
I have used a newly released super cute image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘sketchy snow person’ and coloured him with promarkers and I added stickles for the glistening snow. The gorgeous papers are dovecraft from the ‘fancy Christmas’ paper pack and the fantastic sentiment strips are by pink petticoat from the ‘sentiment ribbons’ set. I added my snowflake charm onto some baker’s twine and tied it around my top layer of patterned paper.
Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps and one lucky winner will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to spend in their online store.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
