Winter Wonderland

The theme for this weeks challenge over on Winter Wonderland is 'Christmas Dinner'.  Well I was sure I had the perfect image for this one, a digi image of Christmas Puddings, but could I find it..... NOOOOOO.  I must've put it on my external drive and not on my computer.  So I had a rummage in my boxes of card kits by Hunky Dory and found this one.  I'm not a lover of card kits, much prefer to make a card from scratch, but they do come in handy..... lol.

Our sponsor this week is Wild Orchid Crafts


with a prize of a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.  Ooooh just think of all the lovely mulberry flowers you can get.......

Here's my DT card.


An easel card for a change.  Everything is from the Hunky Dory kit apart from the ribbon and gems.

Lavinia Stamps Challenge

This months challenge over on Lavinia Stamps is running till the end of this month and the theme is 'Add Some Beads or Gems'.  I love Lavinia stamps and have done for a long time.  But I've never really had much time to do anything with them till lately.  I've always been on a few DT's, but decided it was time for a change and stepped down from some of them.  So now I'm only part of the DT for I Love ProMarkers, naturally...... lol, and Winter Wonderland.

Here's the card I'd like to enter into Lavinia Stamps challenge.



I used Distress Inks, in Squeezed Lemonade, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans and Picked Raspberry for the background and Versafine inks in Olympia Green, Crimson Red and Onyx Black,  for the image and greenery.
