Winter wonderland challenge–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you have all had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend.  Today is the final day of my week off from work so I’m taking my mother out for some lunch and a look around the shops, although she is suffering with her arthritis in her knee at the moment so we’ll probably be having lots of coffee breaks in between (but I’m not complaining as it will be more time to chat and people watch lol!)

I’m here this morning with my card for the new challenge over at winter wonderland challenge.  This week the lovely Marianne has set the theme and she has chosen “it takes two” so she would like to see 2 people/snowmen etc in one image – fairly simple I thought until I couldn’t find any image I had with only two characters!  I had lots with 1 and equally lots with 3 but none with 2 – typical!  So after a quick nip to Pollycraft and I found a super cute image to use and here is my card:

WW challenge - it takes two

WW challenge - it takes two (close up)

As I said the image is from pollycraft and is called ‘snow buds’ and I coloured it with promarkers and flex markers.  The papers are my mind’s eye from the ‘be merry’ paper pad and the kraft card is from dies to die for.  I punched the snowflakes with a MS punch and added cute little heart buttons from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and one lucky winner will receive a £15.00 voucher 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 the lovely comments you leave for us.

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

The crazy challenge – add a sentiment

Bearly mine challenge – 3-2-1 (3 snowflakes, 2 papers, 1 image)

Crafty creations challenge – fun and games (playing in the snow)

Creative craft world challenge – blue theme

Digistamps4joy challenge – predominantly blue & include water (hope snow is ok!)

Divas by design challenge – stamp something

For fun challenge – buttons galore (3 tiny heart buttons)

Little darlings challenge – outside

The lollipop ladies challenge – fruit loops and glitter

Simon says stamp challenge – anything goes

I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge this week and I cannot wait to see what you create.  Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by today.
