Summer and Winter

Well it is still more like Autumn today. Chilly and gloomy with some rain first thing. It does seem a bit warmer now but nothing like Summer. This is my GDT card for Crafts 4 Eternity where there is a lovely sketch with lots of layers, my fave, and the need to feature strawberries and lace. I have used the gorgeous WOJ image of Willow. The main paper is K&Co. I used my MS trellis punch and flower doily punches, punched ferns and Wild Orchid flowers along with some pink lace, sentiment from Craftwork cards layered on a nestie die cut and a photo corner from stash. you can win 2 digi stamps and the sketch is such a great one to use so I hope you will all join in this week.
I am also entering these other challenges:
Passion for Promarkers Pink Birthday
Allsorts Strawberries and Cream
A Spoon full of sugar Floral Delights
Stamp Something Happy Something (mine is Birthday)
Oh Alice What's your muchness (mine is lots of layers and flowers)

The second card is my DT card for Winter Wonderland. This week Danielle has chosen the lovely challenge of a traditional Christmas flower. There are some great stamps on offer for the lucky winner too from the Stamp Barn. I chose one of my favourite Anyas for this one and added lots of glitter. The two papers are Dovecraft Traditional Christmas, full of poinsettias and holly. (The strips are from the sheet of paper.) I made the poinsettias with a nestie, X cut punch and gems and added gold holly leaves. It seems that more and more of you are getting those Christmas cards made which is great to see.
Other challenges:
Pear Tree Designs Sketch and use flowers
Simon Says 1 Image, 2 DPs, 3 types of embellie (flowers, holly and gems)
Bah Humbug Anything Goes
The weather forecast for the weekend is a bit better so let's hope they're right. Have a good one everybody.
