Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Hooray Summer came back yesterday but here I am with this week's DT card for the Winter Wonderland challenge. It was my turn to set the challenge this week and I decided on Walking in a Winter Wonderland so I am hoping to see lots of snow and snowflakes abounding on the cards this week. My image is Alex and Felicity from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with Promarkers of course. The snowflakes are from Me and My Big Ideas and an MS punch with added gems. I am loving using lace on my cards at the moment and I am really pleased with the effect of it on this card. This is my 40th Christmas card now, so I am really doing well. Only 4 months to go so hope you'll join in the fun this week and you could win a voucher for Simon Says.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Bah Humbug Winter Wonderland (How's that for great minds thinking alike this week!)
Digistamp Boutique monthly challenge - use a Digistamp image
Stamp Something Digi
Stampin' for the weekend Anything goes
A spoon full of sugar Christmas
Papertake Dawny P's fab sketch
Passion for Promarkers Winter blue
ABC B is for blue

I hope the sun shines on you this weekend. I have the day off on Monday when my friend Lynsey will be coming over for a crafting day woohoo.
