Winter Wonderland Multi Combo Xmas DT Card

Good morning everyone out there in the land of blog
Once again it is nearly the weekend and if we are very lucky, the lovely weather will stay with us and, we can all get some more of our gardens sorted.

This week the Challenge over at Winter Wonderland is a sketch by the very talented Marianne.  
Now you can rotate this to meet your needs as I have done.

Our sponsor this week is our monthly sponsor........................
 Which reminds me to get all excited again, having already won one challenge with a Simon Says Stamp gift voucher, on Tuesday I was delighted to be announced the winner of the Copic Colour Challenge and yes I was lucky enough to win another Simon Says Stamp gift voucher.  So you can imagine my retail therapy is on overdrive and Simon Says Stamp also sell the newer colours of copics in the sketch markers so I am sure you know what I am currently adding to my shopping cart. Whoop Whoop!!!!!!!      So if you want to get as excited as me, pop over to Winter Wonderland and enter this weeks challenge.

Remember that the DT ladies and I love combo's, so here are the challenges I am entering with my DT card this week.  (you might want to get a coffee now).........................

Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club - Christmas Stitching - I have used a stitched ribbon and used faux stitching with a white gel pen around one of my papers on the top of the easel card and on the return

Penny Black - Flowers - Here is my all time favorite stamp along with their requirement this week of flowers and I have used some Poinsettia's, that I got from the Hobby House.

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Metal - I hope you can see the little metal snowman charm just above the flowers and under the ribbon, I got him from a local department store.

Totally Gorjuss - Round and Round, I have used two circles on my layout the base one is a Nellie self embossing die cut and the other is the nestie cut image plate edged with fine glitter.
Paper Sundaes - An easel Card - I appear to be in a flow of these at the moment. 

CupCake Craft Challenge - Bloomin Charming - to use flowers and charms on your card, how could I resist.

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Say it with flowers - Don't you just love Christmas flowers and these are quite stunning too. (Also must enter as the sponsor is Wild Orchid Crafts and the prize is to die for)

A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge - Something cute and girly, well I go with the snowman being oh so cute that all you want to do is go awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww and girly well flowers are a girly thing as are charms, so believe that a Christmas card can be cute and girly. Plus it is the first time I have entered this challenge :)

Stampavie and More Challenge - Flower Power

Charisma Cardz Challenge - 3D - I have done an easel card as I do so love them at the moment.

Oh I am so sorry are you drinks cold?, I really should not take that long getting to the actual card.  It took me twice as long to write it and link it I can tell you............................

So here is my weekly Christmas Card
Base paper is red, with MME top green paper and another make for the little bits on top of those, sorry can't remember the name now.  I used my new round Nellie set from the Hobby House and the glitter, flowers and pearls from their also.  (see where I shop link at the top).
This is the bottom return with MSE sentiment.
Here is my best ever snowman one of my first purchases from the Hobby House, coloured in those amazing copics with a little Atyou clear glitter pen on his little white body for that  obligatory crisp winter shimmer.

I would like to thank everyone for their recent kind comments and concern for my poor finger, which I can now tell you is steri free and the humorous comments (thanks Sue) which were all, as always greatly appreciated.

I am leaving my post in the capable hands of Mr Blogger who does so well to publish it whilst I am at work and I will be back after work  following a quick cuppa with a crafting friend to link my challenges

Hugs and Happy Crafting to you all

Kate xx
