Winter Wonderland - It's Beggining to feel a lot like Christmas - DT card



Good Morning my Dears,  It's Friday, only a few hours until the weekend begins, Yippee!!!  For the past few weeks we have allowed any type of card creation in the challenge so far this year but this week sees the official start of our Christmas Card Challenge over at Winter Wonderland and it is the lovely Marianne who has chosen the theme

It's Beginning to Feel a Lot like Christmas.
A nice easy challenge for you
We would like you to make any type of Christmas Card this week.

I am so excited to getting on with making my Christmas cards for my favourite season in the year. Just think, no more rushed last minute cards on Christmas Eve. (which happened last year) and I swore "Never Again" lol.  

I've chosen to make a non traditional colour of Christmas card, Blue & Pink.  Sweet Tilda with present was the image I chose and I've used Promarkers to colour her hair, skin, socks and ribbon, but I have paper pieced her little outfit and the gift she is carrying. I used the same paper for the scalloped centre strip behind her and the large snowflake. The full recipe for my card is below this post.

Our Sponsor this week is the fabulous Delicious Doodles and they are giving one lucky winner their choice of 3 of their wonderful digital images.



I am so looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations over the coming week. Please do pop over and take a peek at my lovely Teamie's card, they have yet again done a wonderful job just for you.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead of you.
