Firstly I must apologise for my lack of commenting this week. I need to get ahead with my DT cards and also have lots of cards to make for the next Crafter's Companion launch so haven't been able to spend much time on my laptop. This afternoon I thought I would do some commenting and I am posting comments and they are not appearing! Very frustrating.
This week at Winter Wonderland it's Squirrel's first challenge and the theme this week is How Charming so we want to see a charm on your Christmas card. I have used another of my new Sugar Nellie stamps from the Simply Sassy range, called Secret Santa. I have coloured her with Promarkers and added glitter flock to the fur. The card is an 8" x 8" one and I have used some beautiful 12" papers from Deja Vu called Fairisle. I love the folksy look of these papers and red and blue is one of my fave Christmas colour combos. I've used the MS zigzag punch all over the place and a Sizzix corner die. The flowers were made using Marianne poinsettia dies and Core'dinatiosn which I sanded for a distressed look. The pins I bought at a show last year and I think the charm is from the Hobby House. I love using charms and really must use them more especially on larger cards.
I am out at a Macmillan coffee morning selling my cards so have scheduled this post and will link to the challenges Friday afternoon.
