It's Holiday Season at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

but before I move on I would like to thank the lovely ladies at the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog for making me smile this morning with this
and I would like to thank Kellie at Tickled Pink Stamps for my commenting win of Lil Lad Luca, now I just cannot wait to play with him at the Tickled Pink challenges.

so with the excitement out the way, the theme this week has been chosen by the very talented Helen, who would like to see


I sort of instantly thought Christmas like you do in July for some unknown reason in blog land :), think I was the only DT who did, must be something to do with how many Christmas cards I actually make, so here is my take on this weeks theme with a hope of inspiring you to hop over and enter and if not just take a look at my teamies great inspirational pieces.

The base layer is some gold mirror card as is the contrast, the papers and the image are available from the Secret Crafter On Line Shop, however Grimsby Crafts are now proudly selling the clear polymer images on behalf of the Secret Crafter. I have framed the grand circle die cut image with a Marianne Die and used the holly MS edge punch to create some extra detail around the hand tied bows on the ribbon band. The image is coloured in copics.
I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 200 follower candy.  I will be posting my 300 candy at the end of the current candy.  For those of you that have not yet entered the 200 follower candy you can do so here

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!
