Winter wonderland challenge–DT card

Happy Friday dear friends – it’s almost the weekend *yay*.  Hope you’ve had a great week so far.  Work has been crazy busy and we’ve all been rushing around like headless chickens!  Can’t wait for the weekend for a small lie-in and time to chill (and craft of course!). 

I’m here this morning to share my card for this week’s winter wonderland challenge.  The lovely Lynsey has set the theme and she has chosen “for a special friend/friends”.  I have a few ‘special’ friends that I post Christmas cards too each year so this was a perfect challenge for me.  Here is my card:

WW #15 - friends

WW #15 - friends (inside)

WW #15 - friends (close up)

I decided to try a different, albeit simple, fold for a change to the regular square card.  I don’t know it’s official name but I think it may be known as a fold-back card?  I literally took the front of my square card and folded it in half.  The super cute image is another August newbie from DigiStamp Boutique and is part of the ‘Zoe and Henry Xmas Set 1’, which is currently one of the offers of the month.  You can find it in the shop here along with the other offer of the month too. 

Our sponsor this week is Pollycraft and they are offering one lucky winner 5 digi images of their choice from their online store.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as usual, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
