Winter Wonderland - My Sentiments Exactly - 1st DT Card

Good Morning my Lovelies, It's Friday morning and in a few hours time it will be the start of the Weekend. Yippee!!!!

I am so excited to be showing you my first DT Card for Winter Wonderland Challenge. We have all the new and existing DT members on board this week so you need to get yourself across to Winter Wonderland "Toot Sweet" after reading my post of course. lol

There is a feast of creative genius waiting for you to inspire and motivate you from my dear Teamies.

Our Challenge this week chosen by the lovely Kate is My Sentiments Exactly. Kate would like you to use your sentiment as the focal point on your creation. 'Simples'

My sentiment was specially designed for me (after I emailed her - cheeky mare that I am) well if you don't ask my Mother always said then you don't get !!! The lovely Lynne, my friend and one of our two super sponsors this week was so obliging - I gave her my spec and hey presto this adorable sentiment came back as quick as a flash. Thank you sweetie.

I will explain the making of the card after I introduce you to our two wonderfully Generous Sponsors this week.

Simon Says Stamps are giving one lucky winner a $15.00 gift certificate to spend in their store


Our next generous Sponsor is the the lovely Lynn over at Sentiments For You
and the prize is a $10. certificate to use within the store

So come on girls, boys, children lets get those sentiments out and start creating.  We all looking forward to seeing your entries over this coming week.

For my card I've used the lovely Tilda with her bow and quiver !!!  she has been coloured  with a mixture of pro markers and Tim Holtz distress inks and cut out onto a scalloped nestie. My papers are from Basic Grey and Prima.  I've used my MS heart border punch and some satin heart ribbon.  The little heart is a chipboard one from pin flair which I painted with red acrylic paint then a lovely mesh with little raised white dots which was glued on with glossy accents.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been stickled with frosted lace, the swirls are Marianne D's dies. Diamante swirl is Prima and the gossamer butterfly is from my stash.  I hope you like my little creation.

Thank you so much for visiting, do please leave a few words to let me know you were here.

Have a wonderful day and a great weekend
