Sing a Christmas Carol with The Winter Wonderland Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Oh what a relief, today being Friday sees the beginning of the weekend, and oh boy do I need it this week.

  However more importantly it is the next challenge at

Winter Wonderland,

but I cannot move on without saying to all our lovely followers that if you have as many cards as me in your store, then you have been keeping up with us at Winter Wonderland, as although I only became a DT in March, I had made a New Years Resolution to make a card a week, although I actually have done more than this.  So some of you will have lots of card all ready for sending out.  There were some absolute stunners last week as well, and it is lovely to pop and see you all, but so difficult to select a top three.

 The theme this week at Winter Wonderland has been set by our very talented Marianne, who as we speak should be spending lots of cash and doing us proud at the NEC in Birmingham. She chose the theme of 

SING A CHRISTMAS CAROL

and we have the fabulous Pink Gems sponsoring us too

Here is my creation for this weeks theme
The base card is white with a layer of black and topped with dove craft papers.  The cuttlebug was used to cut out the snowflake frame and the inner image plate.  I also embossed the frame using the cuttlebug. I placed some black pearls in each corner and one on top of the bow and ribbon.  The ribbon and bow are from the Papermania Capsule Mono collection.  I added stickles red glitter to the frame embossing.  The image is one of the first I ever bought and is a Penny Black creation.

I am entering this creation into the following challenges
Cooking It Up With Katie - who wants to see our texture (embossing) our swirls (embossing) and black (think that is obvious or may be not?)
ABC Challenge - W is for Winter Wonderland
Penny Black Allsorts Challenge - "It's beginning to look alot like Xmas"
Corrosive - I cased Joan for her penguins
CRAFT - dry embossing (the nestie frame)
Dezina's World - Song/Dance/Music (please pop over and join in with her theme)

I would like to say hello to my new followers, to my existing followers and those lovely visitors that take the time to leave me a comment so I can pop over and say hi and look at your lovely work too. Thank you.

Mr Blogger will very kindly publish this for me again this week, he is such a gentleman you know, and I will at some point link via mobile blogging and if not after the weekly food shop.

Have a great weekend all of you
Hugs Kate x
